      Forum Buying/Posting/Selling Guidelines & Advice

      Based on Feedback from users:

      We have created a new FORUM called WEEKLY SPONSOR SPECIALS. This is where the sponsors can post their weekly Deals, Special Purchases, etc.

      That way there is a separation from the Private Party Livestock and Equipment. Therefore, anyone that is commericially oriented should be posting in the new area (Blue Usernames).

      SDReefs is a FREE SITE for all Members. Members choose to become Premiums, Advanced Hobbyist,or Sponsors for various reasons. Some however just take advantage of it. If you are an aspiring business you will need to provide a resale license before posting items for sale or advertising fish runs. If you are an advanced hobbyist and just selling or trading frags, you should be at a minimum, a premium member to help support the site. That way we can continue to provide all members with a functional site, great bandwidth, give-a-ways, and more.

      As a Seller you should remain consistent with your message, stick to your post details, and reach out to buyers immediately if there are any changes in your terms.

      Buyers, beware and do your homework. Check the animal out, see if it's eating, healthy, fat, no ick, etc. If it is a tank breakdown, did you get there first, last or have the fish been all stressed out. Are the animals in a baggie or small conainter sitting there? Good thoughts to look at before you just jump at a great price. There is an anonymous element to open Forums and if something is too good to be true, check it out first. Check out the person's FEEDBACK in the FEEDBACK SECTION or ping someone you know on the board before you buy. Are you sure you want to buy a fish out of a Bag? On the roadside?

      Users should follow posted guidelines on responses and not get lost with unrelated posts or personal banter on someone else's post.

      These are personal transactions not under the control of SanDiegoReefs. If any fraudulent activity occurs please contact us immediately. If your agreement terms are not met or broken, that discussion should be via PM or email and is between buyer and seller and out of our control. Use the FEEDBACK FORUM and please be responsible with your choice of wording.

      Private Party Sales are intended to be just that. Often these transactions are between two hobbyists to either help someone out with a prolific item at a great price or just reach out with good will to existing members. Anyone making that type of purchase with the intention to resell that item should be forewarned that we do not support or intend to maintain that type of activity by members.

      Please report those users to the webmaster: Webmaster@sdreefs.com

      Thank you for your support!
