Hey,

I am looking to see if anyone is interested in this? Fish, coral, clean up crew, etc.

I would like to have the order over $300, perhaps even more, in order to get the lowest shipping price and better quantity discounts.

Trying to do this while the cooler weather (but not cold) prevails in the next 3 or 4 weeks or so.

If you are looking for inverts or CUC, they have a huge list @ http://www.jlaquatics.com/documents/invertebrate_list.pdf

I have started a Google Docs spreadsheet for people to use. PM me with your e-mail address and I will give you access.

It is pretty self explanatory. Order is planned for early October unless the weather is completely horrible then we will discuss an alternate date.

For anyone looking for a cleanup crew this is far and away the best option... Same if you need a few specific fish...

If you don't mind me asking what's the plan for splitting up the shipping costs? Equally or based on order value?

Thanks

Equal value, so $30 split among all the purchasers.

Send me your e-mail address for access to the file.

At the moment there are only three orders in the spreadsheet of all the people who have requested access. I would like to get this order firmed up for the first week of October and shipping the second week.

The order is back and I *think* I have shared it with everyone. Let me know if you are not able to see it in the same folder as the spreadsheet.

On a different topic I have to go to the US for 3 to 5 weeks on Sunday for work so I won't be able to receive the order or get anything for myself. The prices are no different and shipping would only be $1 more for the participants. If there is someone who wants to take over as the group buy leader send me a PM

Fellow Reefers, first let me introduce myself, my name is Dean (DrFu) and i'm taking over for Charles (solosk71) on this group buy. Because of some issues with the document being in a format i could not access till today I have not done anything with this so let me appologize in advance for taking so long.

I have a spreadsheet with the following Canreef members orders:
Charles (solosk71)
Jeremy (DigitalWeight)
Cody (Skimmer Juice)
Garth (Jettawagon)
Hans (hfp75)
David (aquatic_rice)
Brett (brettkla)
Jaro (Jaro)
Skye (Eouen)

If their is anyone else joining this order let me know asap as i'm contacting JL tomorrow, thanks.

Dean

I have recieved an email from JL and they inform me that they are getting a large stock order in tomorrow. What we are thinking is a Monday or Tuesday shippment, I will pick up the livestock either tuesday/Wed from the airport.

I will keep everyone posted with the cut off date, then i will be taking payment once orders are confirmed and 100% accurate. Since i will not know the exact shipping charge till the last minute we will do the shipping charge COD when you pick up your order.

JL does have one request for a phone #/email so I have added a couple of columns for all of you to update, please do so as they use these to mark all packages on who's who's, thanks.

I am still interested in ordering the items i have. I am going to double check to see if there is anything else i want. When is the last day to put things in? As for now, the items I have are defiantly a 100% want for me and good to be ordered. Thank you for taking this on.

Where is pickup happening? Does everyone need to show up at the airport or are you taking the order back to your place? If it's your place what part of town are you in? If it's the airport what time? I would like to order some critters but I live in Strathmore and work until 4:30.

Drfu
