Every year at MACNA, there seems to be tons of free aquarium stuff to be had, and of course this year is no different. At the Saturday night gala, which featured Jean-Michel Cousteau as the keynote speaker, Marineland was handing out box after box of Maxi-Jet 900 water pumps to attendees as they walked through the door. And for folks who brought their families (e.g. wife plus a kid or two), they got a pump for every person. So at the end of the night, an aquarium enthusiast might end up with three or four pumps as freebies, which translates to $60-80 or more in free stuff all in one go. Couple in the fact that Marineland was also giving away multiple Reef Capable LED fixtures as door prizes, and you’ve got some serious prizes just to be had from showing up for a free dinner and an entertaining speaker. Talk about getting your money’s worth.
The Maxi-Jet pumps were the perfect gift too. We have all used them at one point or another in our dabbling with marine aquaria, so we all know just how much of a workhorse they are.
