[quote="From www.wctropicalmarine.com]The Customer Service and Order office will remain closed until Wednesday, June 30 at Noon. Once we open Wednesday at Noon, everything in the site will be 15% off through the July 4th weekend. We'll also pick up the sales tax for the California residents through July 4th.[/quote]
I'm with RR. I just picked up 1lb of Mrs. Wages pickling lime from Publix for just over a buck.
Oceanic 200g buckets, $30.

Although not really a special, this is the LFS's regular price :D

I havn't been to this LFS yet (I'm going tomorrow), but they sound really good. They have mostly tank raised fish, and keep those fish separate from the normal caught fish. They also QT the tank raised fish for 4 weeks to make sure they are free of disease before they sell them.
I went to a moving sale on the weekend and the people were desperate to sell their aquarium, heres what I got: I picked up a 55 gallon w/stand, one maxijet 1200 powerhead, aquaclear 300 or 400 filter I think, 300W marineland heater and 200W heater and a large air pump all for $100.
My biggest expense now is my lighting, I'm going to get 4- 96W power compacts.
