New York Sale


Check your local Petco I just called ours and thier $1/gallon sale is March 28th here. Just wanted to let everyone know, it is always nice to get some tanks at a decent price. Good if you have MTS or need some extra plant tanks like me!!


The Central New York Aquarium Society Auction is coming up soon. It is held in Syracuse.

+1 to add.
Few redditors reporting drastic price cuts on canister filters. Could be cause they dont sell many of these.

Keep an eye out for those savings.

Thanks for the head's up on the Petco sales guys. Also, it seems to me that Petco is dropping a lot of their hardware stock to almost nothing lately, at least here in the Syracuse stores. I wonder what's up with that...could be just seasonal stock rotation but the last time I was in their store on Erie Blvd, it was stripped almost empty of any good filters or assorted paraphernalia associated with pumps, etc.

That auction in April is HUGE by the way. The festivities start at 10 am and go way past 9 pm, and there's always just a whole slew of plants and animals and equipment up for auction. HIGHLY recommend it! Also, if you see something on a table you want and you don't have the time to wait for it to get to the auctioneer, you can ask a volunteer to let you buy it right away and you pay the price on the tag (everything has a starting price tag) and add $2 to it and you can buy it right then and there.

Yea the petco out there in northern lights seems to be better that way. I don't know why because Leah seems to be on the ball...older store maybe, or the NL store is just better budgeted for esthetics due to it's suburban location..

I went to ABC Reefs 2 the other day and I must say I was impressed. Rachael is quite the merchandiser! They had lots of plants and some pretty awesome cichlids as well as a few rare fish you don't see in stores often. Of all the stores in my area, I think that Syracuse Aquarium has the best mix. Saying that, I have also been in there when Chris had next to nothing in the store, so it just depends on the day and time. Fairmount Aquarium has unfortunately become a disappointment to me. Hopes were so high for that new fish room and I know Tom is still working on it, but it's been what, 2 years now? Fact is that if I can find it online I will go that route if it isn't an emergency, or for live animals. Prices are usually a LOT cheaper. I love to support the locals, but when they want $27 for an impeller that I can buy online for $9.....

Yea ABC will order you, anything and they beat any price. Also got rare items from them and paid what I found online. Fairmont had horrible,service boss was cussing out a delivery driver in front of customers and kids. Chris is,nice,there but they have been slacking on new fish lately. Abc is putting in a huge plant tank soon. But I usually go online and order them myself, between here and locals I don't need much else. Do you have a lot of plants? I'm always open for trades, I'm also into shrimp and Discus so have a lot to offer!

The one in watertown is also having the sale the guy on the. Phone said it was running for 13 days.

I hope to make it to the auction I haven't been in a few years.

The whole fairmount fish room has been under construction for at least 7 to 8 years.

Where is ABC reefs ? I'd like to check them out I only thought they carried saltwater so I never gave them a second thought.

Yea man I lived by ABC reefs don't let the name fool,you. I never stopped either lol. You have to go to ABC reefs 2. Just ABC has little selection but they do have some.

ABC 2 is on 57 if your heading towards clay it is right past,the Seneca mall on the left. Think the raymour warehouse is right after it. Rachel, Kapil and Dave will help you,a lot. They always have coupons on their Facebook page.

Chris I don't have anything remarkable plant-wise. Just a lot of stems and ferns. I do manage to grow a massive grove of cryptocoryne wendtii that I trade to Chris at Syr. Aq. every few months for fish or whatever. If you're the local discus guy we might have to talk. I'm seriously considering a major re-do sometime in the next few months and I'm not sure what direction I want to take my main tank in.
