I haven’t heard anything yet, just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss any messages?

I’m so excited!


I also haven't heard anything.

Anyone get a shipping notice?

I bought these too via @amazon

Still haven't heard anything in way of shipping, was there an update somewhere that I might of missed?

I also have not heard anything from Adam yet. My guess is that he is busy having fun with his family during the holiday weekend. He'll probably message us sometime this week. @Battlecorals, Adam, do you have an update on the shipping?

Yeah shoot guys I am really sorry for the radio silence again here. Had a snag. with a styro order late last week that is going to push shiping back a little bit, unfortunately.

I ordered a pallet of smaller styros that are far more ideal for shipping one coral in, that i was expecting today or tomorrow, but I got a notice late last week that i needed to update my card info with them, so it hadn't even been processed yet most, unfortunately. I am going to get it all straightened out today for sure and hopefully have the styros by the end of the week.

Having said that, I've got a handful of orders that are not just the contest frag. so I am planning on contacting all of you guys this week first to lock you in. And no, I promise this is not an attempt to get anyone to pad their orders. I am 100% fine with shipping single corals. But I need to get the smaller styros, or it will be brutal cost-wise. lol

again really sorry for any lag or delays in communication.

Do they give out participation trophies? I wish I could trash talk, but I'm pretty much speechless after this.

If say I bought some of that actual live ocean rock from you, think you could throw in a few freebie acropora?

I am having a ruler custom made. The secret is all in the calibration.

Add to that my purchase of a $20,000 gift certificate from Adam, and I think I should just go ahead and collect my trophy now saving you folks all the trouble and worry. ;)

if you're printing your own ruler, you should have to show it against a known object like a dollar bill in order to be able to use it

That would defeat the whole purpose; it would be fair and I might not "win". Where's the fun in that?

Don't worry Peanut, I was joking about the $20k also.
