:ohmy:
China fish tank accessories are they any good ?
Right you thinking why am i asking the question and why don't i just shop local and support my own.
Well i do shop local and get what i can and try do my bit for my lfs but two weeks ago i won a small sum of money and it went to my paypal
account so i looked up few things on ebay and got heater and digital temperature gauge for very small money, guess what 2 weeks and the heater was here so i going to keep it as a spare just in case of an emergency.
Whats your thoughts and did anyone from here ever buy from ebay or china? :evil: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

most stuff is made in china anyways james so worth the risk but with heaters running in a tank with expensive fish I would always stick with a reputable brand

The ones I run robbie are 60 euro only reason I use them is they are upgraded in work so I get the old ones the new digital one is 3 euro with free post I have seen few other things that I can't get here in the Midlands like sponge filters for 3 to 6 euro and heaters are anything from 10 to 30 euro all my tanks run two heaters so It will come in handy as a spare.

I have brought a few thing. You just have to be patient waiting for them to turn up, 10-20 working days is usually about right. That said though I ordered airpump line from China and got it the following week! Happy days.
So if you can wait, go for it and spend your savings on fish for your new tank!
