    As you may have noticed we have a new website. Along with the new website we have some new deals. Soon all the old discount codes that used to work for the website will be replaced with the coupon code: "reefclub", and the code for military members will remain the same. This code will work on all products except rock and those clearly marked in the description,(none right now), and be worth 10%. Additionally, there will be a discount code on the front page, right now it is a $5 off code, "5off". Only one discount code can be used per order though.

    Complicated Limited Time Sale - We recently added a "Google +1" and a "Recommend on Facebook" that can be found near the bottom right of every page on the site. While we have been in business for 4 years now, the buttons are new and have very few responses so it looks like we opened up yesterday. For the next week, we will add a 1% discount to the "reefclub" code mentioned above for every 10 clicks on those links by our previous customers, website users etc.. So for example, if there are 15 "+1" clicks, and 20 Facebook Recommendations then we will raise the value of the code by 3% The code value will be updated twice delay, and will go back to 10% on Monday the 14th at 5pm EST. The box area looks like this:


    The discount will rise on a rolling basis, nothing special on your end just use the code "reefclub" during checkout to obtain the discount.

    Some New Features-

    Quick Order Page - The most popular items in our custom crews condensed into a single page order form to help you save time.

    Newsletter Management - We will have monthly newsletters again that you can sign up for, you will find it on the right hand side of the website on most pages with the exception of the homepage.

    Shipping Made Easier - We added some rules to take some of the guesswork out of shipping.

    Mobile Website - We now have a mobile version of our website. If you are viewing it with a mobile device and want to see the full version just click the mobile off switch at the bottom.

    New Logo - which is better than the old one.

    Twitter Account - we will now be sending Twitter updates to followers interested in odd ball items. We will limit this to bi-monthly.

    Credit Card Payment within the website - saves time over the old redirect way.

    Some things had to go -

    Ajax shopping cart - now you get redirected to the checkout screen and have to click to go back. People with older browsers/sensitive browser pop up security were having trouble with the faster pop up ajax cart, and we switched.

    The Support Forum is now closed. We will come out with a version that is better suited for support questions, than the forum format. It was hard to search and information wasn't condensed. We feel an article layout would be better and more comprehensive, and will be adding new articles weekly to our website. We are probably going with a knowledge base format to replace that system.

    Many users will have to create new accounts. The new database didn't work well with old accounts, so we removed many of them that had format trouble with the new database. Creating an account is pretty quick, and it is usually easier just to create a new one rather than to try to revive the old account. If you need any previous order information, we can look that up for you promptly.

    Thanks again for all your support over the years! We hope you like the new website. If there are features you would like to see please email them to me, or if you have any issues. Hopefully the new website will allow us to quickly publish new tips and tricks articles like the How to Start a Siphon article we published yesterday, and spend some more time looking at fish tanks on forums, which is what this hobby is all about. :)
