The section facilitates the sale of items by its members ; moderators/administrators cannot be held responsible for any items being sold on this site or for any exchanges/correspondence between users.
  1. This section is for Fish and fish related products only (This includes Filters/Powerdheads/Tanks/Rock/Skimmers etc., Amphibians and related items).

    Camera/Video Equipment is also accepted from existing members (do not register to sell such equipment).

  • Only post on the thread if genuinely interested in the item(s).

    Do not post additional comments in relation to the item(s) such as 'another brand is better than this item's' or 'your item(s) is(are) overpriced'.

  • In the wording of the post, include :
    • location (most important !!!),
    • price,
    • picture of the item.

  • If the item(s) has/have been advertised elsewhere, please mention it in your post (you don't have to specifically highlight where-else this item has been advertised).

  • DO NOT use the "PM sent" type message ; the person you sent a PM to will be notified by email by the system.

  • "Bumping" the post to make it visible within the more recent posts is not allowed.

  • Update post once the item is sold.

  • Do not repost another topic for the same item if still for sale.

    If you have several items to sell, please open only 1 topic for them.

  • Please respond to queries by Private Message (PM) in a timely fashion.

  • If you get a bad name for not turning up or if you sell the products to someone else after agreement then you will be banned from selling on the forum.

  • Any posts found not to be in line with the above-mentioned rules will be deleted without notice.

  • Note to new registered users :

    New members will not be allowed to use the Forum for selling equipment unless :
    • they have established themselves over a period of four weeks,
    • presented themselves in the "Introduce Yourself" section of the forum and
    • made at least fifteen substantive contributions during that time.

    Note : this post is partly a summary of previous stickies ( here and here )

    A Word of Caution !
    While the website are not responsible for any transactions agreed to on this website, we would like to recommend that you exert caution when receiving someone in your home, as you would for any other transaction.

    Note to new users :

    Please read the rules above.
    This forum is a discussion forum which facilitates contributing users to exchange/sell surplus fish/items.
    You need to have made 15 substantive posts before using this section (this excludes "Hi and welcome to the forum", "Great tank" ... ).

    Anyone contravening these rules is going to be banned without notice.

    Thanks - Valerie
