I think this is a cool idea, even if it does result in more dents in my bank account. :p

However @revhtree I wonder if you've thought about opening up a little more to countries outside of the US. Because of my work I'm bicontentical and I can tell you there are a lot of reefers in the UK. Folks here love R2R just as much and I'd love to see UK sponors and UK classifieds. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for what I've got, but I'm sure there's a big international market if you did want to open up R2R a bit more.

Orphek has been running regular discounts. Marine depot has a liquidation sale right now

I guess the big question is. . . Define a deal ? 5-10% discount does not allow me to bat an eyelash.

We have actually started recently with Canada adding two sponsors. We're looking to move forward with other countries so thanks for the bump!

10x BRS rewards points are can’t miss. Upgraded my lights and had enough rewards for a free PAR meter!

I have no idea about points so what does that equate too in money?

I must agree with @vetteguy53081 -- I think it's a fantastic idea for a Forum, but not to be pelted with "10% off" alerts. (Yawn :rolleyes:) But for the really-good runaway deals... heads-ups like $30 buckets of salt, BOGOs, etc., close-outs, heck yeah!

NO we're not going to send alerts to you guys! This is just about a forum and sharing all the good deals.

What's the best deal on an Orphek light right now?

So i found a new light on Amazon Called the Smatfarm G5 it is basically a mix of a hydra and a noopsyche and it is amazing! I have been running them on less than 40 percent for a month now and i had to turn th down due to the corals getting too much light. They have 6 channel control with ramping and they come with mount arms. Feel very solid and are working like a champ. So for 110 bucks a piece you really cant go wrong. I have 4 mounted on 180 gallon. The last pic is is with all the Blue and uv spectrums running at 30 percent the green red and whites are at 0.

Recently scored a Kamoer X1 that is currently on sale at $47 at BRS. Combined that with a $10 off coupon that BRS sent out when they acquired Marine Depot. The order came with mystery reward card worth $10. Basically paid $30 after tax. Great little unit.

Would love to see a forum dedicated to deals and steals. It's getting more expensive as we speak on both sides of the aisles - livestock and hardware. Every little bit helps.

The Korallin Bio-Denitrator kit with sulphur, Eheim pump, etc., were almost impossible to get anywhere until recently when the shipping container arrived. LIQUIDATION price at Marine Depot right now is $260.99. I think I paid over $400 a couple of months ago. (See my R2R thread about my Nitrates in my 150-gallon FOWLR going from 160 + ppm to 40 ppm in the first 6-weeks of use!) Buy now! LOL :cool:
