Hey all.

I have placed an order with Incredible Aquarium for a bunch of coral and wanted to extend the offer to anyone else looking for some new things.
I'm in for about $290 right now, I might add more to that.
If we hit free shipping then we get free shipping. If not and nobody else wants in them I'm happy with just getting myself some new stuff I don't really need :lol:

Pickup would be in Port Coquitlam.
I'm currently looking at a date of Wednesday the 20th for arrival.
Bill Says the cut off for ordering WYSIWYG would be the 18th, and ideally sooner then that for non wysiwyg frags so they have time to heal a little before shipping.

Have a look though at some of the wonderful corals and wonderful prices he's got.

If you choose to participate, just place your order though the site.
Select in store pick up so you don't get charged for shipping.
In the comments write "Group Buy: Gina - Port Coquitlam" so he knows it would all go in the same box.

I have plenty of room to float everything and what not. Let me know if you're in :)

Im looking at am arrival date of Wednesday January 20th.

Bill would like cutoff to be Monday January 18th for all WYSIWYG items.

If youre after frags, ideally before the 18th so they have time to heal.

Nems are wysiwyg so 18th is the last day for those.


Just do it ;) you know you wannnnnaa.....

Just tell her itll be worth more in the future....
Buy 2 and tell her if they have babies, each baby is worth $$$$

Wait... Just dont tell her where youre getting it or how much youre paying!

Id rather buy coral then new shoes ;)

i would love to not tell her but she monitors the bank account like a fat kid on a smartie.

It was hard enough buying the AI Hydra, tank, rock and other corals without her finding out how much i spent. sadly enuf, i no longer have that credit card

Pop by an atm and take out $20 every other day. Say you found this wicked taco truck for lunch and its cash only. Give the cash to a fellow reefer and have them pay for the coral for you ;)

Or strut the downtown streets at night for a little side cash? :P

Say its a gift for her? Im a girl and i think rock flowers are extra purdy. That would make a pretty sweet gift, i mean its even got flower in its name! And in that case you definitely need a whole bouquet of them....

My wife just spent over half an hour with me going through the corals on the site. We purchased 2 and added them to your group buy. Thanks for setting this up.

Lets not worry about free shipping guys.
If you wanna order, then order.
Im placing this for myself so if we dont hit it im paying shipping so i can get me some coral.

Im offering this up as a group buy so if others are interested in a small amount (or large) they have an opportunity to get what they want. Its hard to justify ordering anything when you only want 1 or 2 pieces so im just trying to be nice :P

Come on guys, buy some of those RFAs ;)

I think there's 4 of us so far, and a few "maybe".

Maybe I can rip that stupid RBTA off my rock and buy even more......

I've had a few people ask...

This is Next day courier guys (UPS or FedEx). I am not doing an airport pickup.
I would not be advising anyone order any fish. They may not fair well over night. Corals tend to be a little hardier then some fish... sometimes.

If you choose to order fish, do so at your own risk. I know most fish spend far longer then overnight in a box when they make their way to a fish store.
I would recommend you send an email to Bill and enquire about adding fish prior to ordering.
I am more then willing to make sure they get floated asap and are kept in the dark.
And dry goods tend not to fit well in a box full of coral ;)

If anyone has been thinking of grabbing a few corals from IA now is the time. I have had a few people PM me saying their interested and have picked out a few items they wanted to buy, but never let me know if they have purchased them or not.

If anyone is interested in tracking our giant 50lb box of coral lol

If that link doesn't work, its UPS with the tracking number

There will be a black Mitsubishi in the Driveway, in the evening a grey mitsu will be in front of the black one. I will probably tape a sign or something to the door or balloons in the lawn so its easy to find... I don't know haha!

Did UPS show up yet? I know sometimes they just left the package at the front door without even knocking.

Just showed up, he rang the doorbell and left. I neurotically kept checking the doorstep because I know they've done that before, but its NEVER been past 10am for me.
I could barley carry the box up the stairs! Holy crap is it heavy!!!

Come pick up your corals folks
I've sent everyone a text with my address.

Very happy with my order too. The colour on one is not what I expected but we'll see after it settles in. Polyps already extending so happy with that for sure. Thanks Gina.

It's my first time to order sps frags from online vendor, ordered 3 sps frags and two of them came brown, the other one is supposed to be yellow but came green, all polyp extended within 2 - 3 hours though. Is it normal?

Coasting

I finally got around to putting my new photos up on photobucket, it just takes forever!!!!

Everything is pretty and happy and still alive. Sps are starting to get their colour.
My bubble coral will have a little healing to do, but their just awkward corals to ship.

Note to self, no more massive orders.... to hard to carry the box up stairs! My pitty weighs 50lbs and I can carry her around, I swear this box weighed more...
Everyone got a free 1 shot sample of Coral RX to dip their new frags in.
First order I have EVER placed with ANY vendor where every single frag that was ordered, actually showed up!!! Wahoo!

Everything was packed well with plenty of water. Most frags were floated with baby pool noodles colour coordinated for each participant. Mine were all purple.

And an apology in advance, I haven't figured out how to get my camera to pick up gold or light orange colours yet.
And a few corals like the Highlighter Monti and Spiral nauti were tucked in weird spots so photos are at an intense angle through the glass distorting the image. Both are very bright and great colours.
