    Any great local deals going on?

    And of the big online retailers have anything that can't be passed up?

    Tell us what you are after or what you bought!

    I heard something interesting, if you go to BRS and look at the stock of an item, it may be a predictor of it that item is going to be a doorbuster or on sale at all. Example, they currently have 275 of the new Apex EL systems.....which to me seems like a lot of $500 product, they have 375 units of the $800 one. So just guessing there will be a sale on Apex systems. But I was hoping to get an AI Nero 5 pump, only 61 units so my prospects of scoring a huge deal are probably pretty slim. I just learned this "trick" and I don't know if it is based in reality. Since both of these items are MAP priced, the deal should be everywhere on Friday.

    Orphek LED lights on sale as a doorbuster at BRS. I bought two large ones for my 600 and 3 of the smaller ones for my 220. Saving about $700 on 5 lights.

    I found out last year if you buy something from BRS during this time that ends up going on sale all you have to do is call up and they will credit your account for the difference of the sale amount rather than you returning it and buying it again.

    If my BRS stock thing has any validity....they just took 10% off all Neptune. Except the Trident and the Trident reagents.

    I'm still looking for a Nero 5 or 2.....doesn't look good for a sale :(

    Up north.....I saw a little something from The Fish Crew. Animal Attraction is doing 20% off fish and coral.

    I received an email from saltwateraquarium.com that says the AI Nero 5 will be 10% off at midnight and that the EcoTech Vectra pumps will be 10% off. Also premium aquatics has the Nero 5 for 10% off right now. Plus they don’t charge sales tax yet.

    I got 2 of the Nero 5 pumps! I'm excited. I'm going to try my gyres on the back wall top at low power, and the nero's on the sides going across.

    I was looking for some Phoenix 14k's x 250w.....but I didn't see any spectacular deals. Which bulbs do you get, you still using Hamiltons?

    I have some aqua medic bulbs that I hate! The Hamilton or Phoenix are way nicer. I found some Ushio 20k at premium aquatics for 42 each so I grabbed them.

    I got a used LifeReef skimmer off of eBay. Does that count? I am actually really excited since you nearly never see these for sale on the secondary market.
