Here in Charleston, SC we are on a HOT STREAK with 90+ degree days...going on 26 days in a row right now. To add to that, we have LOADS of corals looking for new homes.

So on August 15th, why not stay indoors in the cool AC with a popsicle, white gloves, us and R2R?!

Many people are starting to venture back out into the world and some are still playing it safe at home. No matter your stance on Social Distancing, we think we can help lift your spirits with another great LIVE SALE!

I am happy to announce our GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be receiving a RAINBOW CHALICE COLONY. We have been able to bring in some nice corals lately including this colony pictured below. It is valued at over $1,000 and could be yours! Details can be found at the bottom of this post



Todd from Todd's PODS has graciously donated 3 sets of tisbe sp. copepods (2 bottles in each set) to our live sale customers. These will be given out randomly throughout the sale. If you are ever in need of pods for a fuge, restocking or new tank, Todd is the guy. Checkout their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Todds-Pods-246647835705931/?fref=ts


Joe Knows Reefs Live Sale Rules:

  • WYSIWYG corals will be posted in this thread beginning at 6pm (EDT) on Saturday August 15th.
  • 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.
  • LOCAL PICKUP: Will not be available until Wednesday 8/19 or any day thereafter. We are currently only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If a special appointment is needed, please let me know.
  • 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 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.
  • 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 (EDT) on Friday August 14th. Drawing will be at 9pm EDT that day.
  • $1 & $3 & $5 CORALS - We will post at least two $1 & $3 & $5 coral per hour, some hours will contain more. Maximum purchase per customer is two and a regular sale purchase is required. IF YOU PURCHASE MORE THAN TWO, WE WILL REFUND THE REMAINING $1/3/5 CORALS AND SHIP THE REMAINING PORTION OF YOUR ORDER WITHOUT THEM.
  • VARIOUS PRIZES - We will offer other various prizes DURING the sale. For example when things slow down, we may offer a $50 gift card to the first person to successfully answer a saltwater trivia question etc.
  • GRAND PRIZE - Rainbow Chalice Colony + Zoa Colony + 6 MONTH SUPPLY OF FROZEN FOOD! For everyone that stays with us for the ENTIRE 6 hours, you will be entered into the drawing for the grand prize. YOU MUST make a post EVERY HOUR during the 6 hour sale. YOU MUST make a purchase during the sale. When the sale is over you must send a PM with the list of your post numbers (upper right corner of your post) for each post. Winner will be posted in this thread Sunday August 16th at 9pm EDT. ***ONLY ONE ENTRY PER HOUSEHOLD***
Good luck everybody

We are busy loading corals into the database for tomorrow!! I just wanted to post a picture of our Grand Prize prize. It is a beautiful rainbow chalice colony!! That's right a colony, not a frag. You must make a post every hour during the live sale (6pm- midnight) and make a purchase. One entry per household. Back to coding!!
