Hey everyone,

Westjet is not accepting cargo due to a strike at the airport.

We will have to reschedule the shipment for later this week or next week.

Send me a PM with any questions.

Sorry everyone, out of me control at this point.

Good news is I will update the website again this weekend if you want to wait until next week.

It looks like the Saturday pick up is good for most. Is it okay for you to pick it up on Saturday or I can probably hold it for you until you are available?

Working all day sat. Likely from 6am-6pm so if some one can help me out and hold my 2 clams I would really appreciate it. Geoff already offered but if anyone picking up their order who lives closer wouldn't mind holding for me that would be awesome! I'm in east burnaby. About 10 mins from JL.

Clam looks good Sam. Very happy indeed. I'll post a pic of mine soon.

Geoff thanks for setting up the group buy. It's my first online order after 8 years in the hobby and I couldn't be happier.

And thank you TJ for holding my order.

Now let's see what everyone else got! Always curious to see if corals are as advertised

Cheers guys

Nice clam Nu-2Reef. Still haven't figured out the best settings yet on the new camera or maybe the camera isn't as good as I thought it would be but here's today's pic. Thanks for holding it for me GMann.

Pics look good to me Sam. Especially that second one.that is one sweet clam. I woulda grabbed it if you didn't.

I picked up a canon dslr camera a few years back and barely used it. Just too complicated for me. I'm not very tech savvy anyway so it's been in the case forever. Now I just use an iPhone lol.
