NEWSFLASH!!!

Starting TODAY 11/1 - We will be offering $1 & $3 & $5 frags DAILY on THIS THREAD!!!

We will have $1 & $3 & 5 frags made available HERE, throughout the week, on a DAILY BASIS for the ENTIRE WEEK!!!
There will be OVER 25 of these frags AVAILABLE!!!


  • There is a LIMIT of a TOTAL of TWO (2) of these "cheapo" frags per household - STRICTLY ENFORCED!!!!
    These TWO (2) "cheapo" frags DO NOT COUNT towards your total limit of TWO (2) "cheapo" frags allowed DURING the sale. This means you could purchase TWO (2) of these during this week, leading up to the sale AND TWO (2) DURING the sale for a GRAND TOTAL of FOUR (4) cheapo frags.


  • PLEASE NOTE - A REGULAR SALE PURCHASE IS REQUIRED to take advantage of these "cheapo" frags - STRICTLY ENFORCED!!!

  • If anyone goes OVER this limit, you will only be shipped your allowed amount of "cheapo" frags and will be refunded for the remaining items

  • All "cheapo" frags sold will be "stock frags". "Stock Frags" are corals that we generally have an abundance of due to growth rate, or maybe we decided to frag out a huge colony. We have offered "Stock Frags" for around TWO YEARS now. These corals are listed with a quality representative photograph that provides a fair and accurate depiction of the coral you would receive. Since these particular corals are not WYSIWYG, they are priced lower than normal. Additionally, they come with a satisfaction guarantee. When purchasing a "Stock Frag" you can rest assured the coral you receive will be equal to OR BETTER in size, color and health than the coral in the stock image.

We have FOUR (4) featured $1 & $3 & $5 coral frags:

Joe Knows Reefs Live Sale Rules & Info:

  • WYSIWYG corals will be posted in this thread beginning at 6pm (EDT) on Saturday November 6th.
  • 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 ONLY accept Credit Cards during the sale. Our website is encrypted with a dedicated SSL Certificate for security measures. The reason for not accepting PayPal is due to the possibility of people checking out with the same coral. Eliminating multiple payment gateways also reduces the chances of this happening
  • 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!
  • 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 "Arrive-Alive" 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
  • Shipping will be a flat $29 for this sale BUT if you purchase shipping before 11/1, you will receive a $10 credit for use during the sale. That make's shipping only $19 - THAT'S RIGHT - ONLY $19 SHIPPING!!!
  • LOCAL PICKUP

  • There will be NO FREE SHIPPING on this sale - we will already be selling items at a lower rate than normal AND we also incur the cost of shipping containers and ice packs etc.
  • 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.
