Cheap Aquarium Products
 
Hello, i was curious if anybody knows of any websites that have very cheap aquarium products such as food, decor, etc. i love my fish tanks but they seem to be absorbing all of my money, lol.

Yes they do that lol. Best thing to do is keep an eye on local classified sites such as craigslist, kijiji or facebook groups. You might have to do some extra cleaning but I've gotten a ton of stuff for cheap or even free. Practical decorations are still a pain to get, for me at least. They are so expensive in stores people dont want to sell them cheaply.

I like buying my supplies from fosterandsmith.com. Any orders over $49.00 are free shipping. I also get my orders typically within 2 days. Their prices are very reasonable and if you don't live in Wisconsin (that's were they're located) you don't have to pay taxes.
I am extremely satisfied with their products, pricing, and service.

Hope this helps,
Trapperwolves

I have also ordered from foster and smith several times now and have been very pleased. They do not charge extra on shipping with items that are large or heavy. I get my orders within a couple of days of placing my order, and from what I have head from others their customer service is good.

Ebay! New stuff like filters, lights, ornaments, gravel, treatments from professional sellers is always alot cheaper. For example my elite stingray filter... 27 in my LFS and 10.95 on ebay.
Also 2nd hand things go on bidding for much cheaper than you would pay outright. Try it.

Craigslist is the way to go for a lot of stuff like that. I just got a 75g tank with a wood stand and fluval 405 for 200 bucks. I see people selling gear on there all the time.
