The Joe Knows Reefs Farm Build!

We recently built a home on 5 acres and have planned an at home farm for some time. Now we get to chase our dreams and build our own farm to our own liking. This building will be 25x35' with a loft, a 25x10' storage area for salt, boxes etc and on our own property. While we are about 85% aquaculture right now, we aim to be 100% aquaculture by 2020. Thank you for your support and especially for you @revhtree !!!

Joe Knows Reefs Live Sale Rules:

  • WYSIWYG corals will be posted in this thread beginning at 6pm (EST) on Saturday November 9th.
  • 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...
  • 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
  • Shipping will be a flat $40 for this sale.
  • We will provide only 3 options for shipping dates for this sale; either Monday 11/11 or Tuesday 11/12 or Wednesday 11/13. On Sunday 11/10 we will create 3 new threads for shipping - you will need to post in the specific thread for your desired shipping day.

  • Shipping will be provided by FedEx Priority Overnight service with delivery by 10:30am in most areas.
  • SHIPPING MODULE CAN BE PURCHASED HERE at any point before the actual start of the sale.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SHIPPING MODULE PRIZE - Purchase your shipping module BEFORE the sale and be entered to win a $50 Gift Card for use DURING the sale. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE SHIPPING MODULE NOW Shipping module must be purchased before 8pm (EST) on Friday Nov 8th. Drawing will be at 9pm EST that day.
