Hi if there is anyone needing anything from oa I go there every week.
I live in Vernon and get home thurs nights. I work in Kelowna fridays.
I won't lie to you I usually go to aquatic addictions on the way through abby.(it's just to close to the highway not to!).
I've got no problems picking stuff up for people in the area.
I know prices are a little higher in the interior (+40%)

Would you do live goods to? I'm in Vernon, and either way might take you up on your offer.
Thanks

My hubby always does the navigating and driving while I snooze, so do you mind telling me which way you go? Do you take the connector at Merritt or do you pass through Kamloops at all?

Hey I would do live goods. I pretty much bring something live home every week:biggrin:. OA has a good arrive alive garantee. I have only had 1 fish die on the way home. I go through Kamloops about half the time. It all depends if I have to swing by work on the way out or in.
I leave sun. night about 5-7ish and I get home around 7-9 thurs.
If you want something pm me and we could figure something out.

Super kind offer. I'll have to check out the OA site to see what I may need. Another heater might not be a bad idea. Hope to get back to you some time in the near future.

Hey, nice tank. That's to bad, all good thing's must come to an end. That would have
been great. I'd have loved to have got in on that offer. You on the other hand need a
lot more stuff in your tank! lol Umm more picture's please.

I would love more stuff in there but... with me getting shipped all over the country for work I am trying to ease the girlfriend into the hobby! I also just got notice that I don't have a new site to go to next week (I am a builder) so
money is about to be super tight. Look on the bright side when I was told I had no more work i was given a paid 8-10 weeks off work.

Sorry to hear about your work. 8-10 wks paid leave is certainly not bad. I will make sure to touch base with Wendell on my back-orders and few extra things too. Hopefully everything has come in.

Thanks so much for picking things up for me in the past too.

I might be an extra week down there but I am almost done. The 8-10 is alright but the payed part is my money I have banked over 3 years. The economy is terrible so no one is building. The bad part is what happens if we can't find work when my money runs out. I feel bad for the 100 or so people we are laying off.

Ohhhh wow, thanks for posting up the offer. I might have to take it up. OA has some really nice pieces, I just wish they kept their website better up to date.

EDIT: Just read the second page...missed the boat on this one!! Darn.

no problems. to bad you didn't notice earlier I've been bringing stuff back since nov. The website is never updated. whatever you buy just tell Wendell it's for Craig. they know whats up. I go to Aquatic Addictions as well, so by all means shop around. No J&L though it's way out of my way. I do like it there though.

I just spent way too much money on a frag order (never too much!!! haha), so I should shunt my tank spending for awhile.

Ha Ha I just got back from scuba diving on a reef in Mexico. I didn't even stop at any fish stores on the way home. Just in case I saw something I wanted on my dives. I have no self control at all:mrgreen:
