WOW....TIME SURE DOES FLY!!! A little over TEN years ago we had a pipedream and funny idea to turn our hobby into a business, mainly to just help offset the costs of the hobby I love. Well, here we sit 10 years later and we have experienced countless cases of ich, every variety of nuisance algae known to mankind, tens of thousands of gallons of water changes and I'm sure we've even managed to kill GSP at some point too!
The point is...even us vendors are hobbyists at heart AND we have all struggled in this hobby at one point or another.

Joe Knows Reefs Live Sale Rules & Info:

  • WYSIWYG corals will be posted in this thread beginning at 3pm (Eastern) on Saturday November 7th and will continue through Sunday November 8th at 3pm..
  • Each post will contain a picture of the coral, price and a link to our website to purchase the coral.
  • The first person to successfully "checkout" with the coral will "win" the coral. Just because the coral is in your shopping cart does NOT mean it is yours...the "checkout" process must be completed.
  • We will accept both PayPal and Credit Cards during the sale. Our website is encrypted with a dedicated SSL Certificate for security measures.
  • You MUST create an account to purchase any of the corals in this sale. This helps us AND you - to ensure your corals wind up at the proper destination etc.
  • Corals will be posted at random during the sale. Typically within every 15 minute window a post of 8-14 corals will be made. Those posts could occur at 12:02 or 12:14...or we may even make a post at 12:14 & 12:16 to spice things up...
  • STOCK FRAGS: Frags labeled "stock" are corals that we maintain a deep inventory of. The frag pictured is representative of the frag you'll receive. We guarantee you will receive a frag of the same coral of equivalent or BETTER size, color & quality. These pieces are priced lower as a result of not being 100% WYSIWYG. If you are unsatisfied with your "stock frag", simply contact us and we will credit your purchase 100%!
  • Private messages WILL NOT be answered during the sale.
  • Rarely, due to technical glitches, two customers may end up purchasing the same coral. This has only happened a handful of times in the past. If this occurs, the first transaction to post will win the coral. The second customer will either have the option for a replacement or full refund.
  • All orders are final - no exchanges, add-ons, or refunds - no exceptions. However our "Alive-Arrival" guarantee WILL apply. In the event that a coral arrives DOA the customer MUST provide a clear photo of the DOA coral within 2 hours. After approval, the customer will be provided with a full credit towards a future purchase.
Shipping Info - NEW LOWER SHIPPING RATE!!!
  • Shipping will be a flat $29 for this sale ($19 for NC, GA, SC)
  • LOCAL PICKUP: Will not be available until Wednesday 11/11 or Saturday 11/14. We are currently only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If a special appointment is needed, please let me know.

  • FREE SHIPPING - If your TOTAL COMBINED VALUE OF ALL PURCHASES exceeds $500, we will refund your shipping! Free shipping is reserved ONLY for orders exceeding this value.
  • We will not combine shipping with other customers. If you and your friend want to split your corals, you must do so under one account. Combining orders on a sale this large makes things very complicated on our end.

***FREE $10 CORAL CREDIT***

***NEW LOWER $29 LIVE SALE SHIPPING RATE***

***FREE SHIPPING OPTION***

***$19 SHIPPING FOR NC, GA, & SC***

-Please read below for all details-

Live Sale Shipping Modules have been posted up and are available now. We are offering $29 shipping, FedEx Priority Overnight, delivery by 10:30am in most areas. ALSO, we have posted a SATURDAY DELIVERY option as well. We always recommend against Saturday delivery in the event of any delays, however there are many people out there willing to take that risk whom can only accept deliveries on Saturdays.

We have never offered FREE SHIPPING during a Live Sale before. This is because we actually DISCOUNT our corals, many of which are 30-50% below our already reasonable prices. However, we typically receive several loyal customers who just can't get enough. For those customers that spend $500+, your shipping will be refunded!

Want to receive a $10 credit? Purchase your shipping module NOW or anytime BEFORE 10/31, and you will receive a $10 CREDIT for use DURING the sale. That basically makes your shipping $19 instead of $29!
