After seeing pics of the zoas Wicked Frags just got in, I'd like to get one or two or .... Anyone else interested in anything? I'm halfway between Victoria and Nanaimo so could do pickup for people in Victoria? Will be a couple of weeks still before ready to be shipped.

Soooo, anyone interested?

Hey Barb..I might be in for a couple of Paly's.....if someone (Shelley this is where you pipe up!) could hold them for me for a short bit (this one would be much shorter than the shrooms Shell!)

Uh hum... did I see my name? Of course I will keep them for you, I dont mind.. the shrooms will be big enough to frag soon anyway:twised: Someone would have to grab them from Barb and get them to me tho... Rick, this is where you pipe up :mrgreen:

I would be in for two or so.

not so lucky--the next group buy will simply be larger aquariums

traco

Sent an email to Dave saying we've got six so far (now 7), so will let you guys know. So reading the last group buy to the Island, it was UPS who shipped. Let's hope we don't have to sweat like Sarah did waiting for the order to arrive. lol Maybe we can use Purolator.

Chaloupa
01-22-2009, 07:07 AM
It was a tough wait...but you know they got it here .... so all went well in the end...and shipping to Vic as their final destination is probably much easier as at least it's a "familiar" city to them...not like lil ol' Campbell River!

01-22-2009, 12:18 PM

Oh good does this mean that all of you people will be thinning out your SPS's now?

Mine are ready anytime you come by....I'll snip anything you want or need...it's way overgrown..and with frags coming, valuable space is in demand!

Hey Joe, welcome to canreef!! :mrgreen:

There is an island club located in victoria, you might want to have a look at www.tgvas.com (http://www.tgvas.com) they're a mix of freshwater and salt. Most of the salty action is here though :wink:

traco
02-07-2009, 03:33 PM
Wondered what is happening with our group order to the Island? Saw don.ald was lucky and got some zoas from you. I realize a sale is a sale for you but wanted to know if you have any zoa frags left for sale? Still have people interested here.

All emails have been replied to as of today (to my knowledge). I confirmed availability with Sean today via email.

Sorry about the PMs, really not the best way to contact me as I only get 100total (received and sent). Fills up way to fast! I will see which I can erase. Thanks. Dave

Ok kids, we're resurrecting this. Traco and I are pretty much good to go and likely will see some pretties we need to add tomorrow when the wickedfrags website gets updated :wink:

I'm taking over and cracking the whip. We're not sure where we're getting this delivered but no worries on that, we'll get it figured out.

Please post in this thread what you are ordering from Dave. Send him an email at sales@wickedfrags with the subject line Vancouver Island Group Order and your list. Payment will go directly to him in the manner he wishes (ask him). If we don't make the free shipping I will pay it and it will be divvied up via the number of frags you are buying. Payment of shipping fees is required upon receipt of frags. No IOUs :razz:

This post will only be open for a few days, then I'll close it and send the whole list to confirm with Dave that everyone has ordered and paid.

Alrighty, let the games begin! :wink:

how do you actually do the order? I don't see any order form on the site. Is it done by emailing the name of the piece you want?

I need to be prepared!!!!!

traco
02-11-2009, 09:12 PM
His website says "As many of pieces are only available in limited quantities, as always, first email secures your favorite."

Can you just picture us all sitting watching the clock tick closer? lol

wickedfrags
02-11-2009, 10:14 PM
As noted below, just fire me an email.

I thought about the whole shopping cart thing when I set-up the site a few years back. I opted against it due to the sensative nature of livestock, limited availabilities, and well, to get the sense that people are buying frags they should be happy long after the sale.

how do you actually do the order? I don't see any order form on the site. Is it done by emailing the name of the piece you want?

I need to be prepared!!!!!

Too funny. Honestly I thought this would be a bad time to update the site, far as I can tell many people spent their money on a recent sale. None the less, I am confident many of the nice zoas are ready to sell and the SPS are growing thick and need pruning!

As this group order all seems to be online and getting their first pics, please ensure you send Christy a list so I can work from one mast list.

Also, $375+ gets shipped for free, and I imagine this order will get there.

When are you thinking as a cut-off date?

christyf5
02-12-2009, 01:05 AM
Well I think the majority of us that posted interest in this thread are sitting back and smoking a cigarette :wink:

I think maybe we'll let it go 3 days or so, so people can get it together then cut it off?

wickedfrags
02-12-2009, 01:19 AM
It's almost like you are preparing your tanks for the olympics or something :)

3 days is great. In the interm, can I please get a list of pieces I confirmed for this group order. I will then move your frags into their dedicated spaces until the time comes.

I just have some other other emails expressing interest. While changes are ok (additions/deletions), I just like to try and be as organized as possible while being fair to other people who email and may be intersted. I good list early on also helps in the event locals pop by. Everything you requested is avaiable - I would just like to get a list so I can down downstairs and put it aside for you. Thanks! Dave

This thread will go one more day. I'll shut it down tomorrow, confirm with you all, make you pay and get this show on the road.

We outdid ourselves on this one with a grand total of $610. Guess who spent the most? :rolleyes:

Borderjumper

Ummmm I guess..... YOU! LOL
$610.. we did good eh. So where and apx when are we looking at shipping?

christyf5
02-13-2009, 12:58 AM
Dunno, thats up to Dave, I would imagine shipping next week. We still haven't worked out where we're shipping them to. Sadly I have like zero room for that much stuff. I think Traco offered originally, perhaps she can still do it?

Borderjumper
02-13-2009, 01:03 AM
That is nice of Barb to offer, but her tank is pretty new to be dropping all those frags into, dont ya think? I would hate to see her system crash.

Im pretty much out of room too. I wonder if Ricks big tank is up and running?

don.ald
02-13-2009, 01:04 AM
yes it up and running and i have lots of room.

Chaloupa
02-13-2009, 01:45 AM
or...they could be shipped here, and I'd come down island ..... just a thought....

lngrhaul
02-13-2009, 02:13 AM
So what did you get Christy?

My order is confirmed and paid so I'm raring to go.

If we ship closer to the weekend then that might make the up island/down island transfer a little easier but I'm good for whomever or whenever. I just don't think I could go further up than Duncan after work during the week due to kid issues.

don.ald
02-13-2009, 04:47 AM
best day for delivery (for me :mrgreen:)would be friday the 20th. i have that friday off so i can either accept the order or i am able to drive to mill bay or duncan or halfway whatever

dave usually ships overnight UPS express and it arrives by noon next day.

Borderjumper
02-13-2009, 04:55 AM
the only thing about Fridays is if it goes into the second day.. which happens more often than it should.. your SOL till Monday.
