I was doing my daily browsing of craigslist yesterday and found this http://greenville.craigslist.org/bfs/1422518047.html
That place is close to my work so i swung on by. They have HOB filters, under gravel filters, in tank heaters, Lee's brand version of the python water change system, tons of turtle stuff, Zoo Med driftwood, and other various older items all for 50% their price. For example, i picked up two packages of the driftwood for $6 and the the Lee's water changer would be $15 (25 ft.). Just an FYI for anybody. If you're in the upstate i'd be more than happy to pick up something for you on the way home from work and meet in Greenville.
