Buy, Sell, and Trade Section

This forum exists as a service for our members to trade and sell their personal discus and/or aquarium related items. It is not intended as a commercial outlet.

Commercial posts are not allowed in this section. Commercial posts are any posts containing extensive lists of fish, multiple new items listed for sale, and recurring threads for the same new equipment or fish.

All posts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. SimplyDiscus reserves the right to remove any posts that are deemed inappropriate and allow exceptions to the posting rules if the administration or moderators see fit.

This is not a discussion forum. If you wish to purchase or trade, please post. However, if you only wish to comment on the quality of someone else's purchase/trade item or price, with no intention of buying or trading, please keep it to yourself. These types of posts only side-track the thread away from the goal of the original poster -- trading or selling their item.

For questions regarding commercial sales, please contact brewmaster15 (Al Sabetta) on the forum.

All transactions arising from this section are private, and SimplyDiscus assumes no financial responsibility or liability for them. Buyer/seller disputes must be handled by the individuals involved. Claims of seller misconduct may be directed to the board moderators or administrators.

You must agree to these rules in order to proceed to the Buy, Sell, and Trade forum. By agreeing to these rules, you understand that failure to comply with these guidelines will result in a warning through Private Message or e-mail. Only one warning will be issued. Any member who continues to ignore these rules will be banned.

All second-hand information will be regarded as hearsay and removed by a moderator or administrator. Continuing to abuse or ignore the rules of this section will result in your access to this section being removed, or a temporary or permanent banning from the SimplyDiscus forum in its entirety.

The Livestock and Product Reviews forum is not a discussion forum. All posts that are deemed unrelated or off-topic will be removed at the discretion of a moderator or administrator. If you feel a particular post in this section is off-topic you may use the Report Post feature to alert a moderator/administrator to the thread or contact a moderator/administrator via Private Message.

If you are aware of any knowingly false or malicious information contained within a review, please report the post to SimplyDiscus immediately.
