Love is in the air! We all know what to get him or her for Valentine's Day...MORE CORAL! Let's be real, corals do something to us junkies that just doesn't compare to anything else. I bought myself a frag pack from an old vendor friend a couple of weeks ago...first time in over a year that I bought corals just for ME. Of course we're always buying and securing new corals, but this was the first time I "shopped" for a frag pack in quite a while. Anyhow, I was STOKED! The days leading up to shipping, the day of shipping, arrival day....I was AMPED. I didn't sleep the night before and I popped up at 5am ready to unpack my new frags!

My point is this...EVEN US VENDORS STILL GET EXCITED FOR NEW CORALS! Well, there is more than just that point...the other point(s)... I know what it's like to fight for corals in live sales...I know what it's like to put your trust and faith and money in a vendor...I know what it's like anxiously awaiting the arrival of new corals...I know how much of a bummer it is to receive a DOA...I am a hobbyist at heart and that is why we have done well in this business. We try to treat our customers as we would want to be treated. With that said, we invite you to JOIN US RIGHT HERE on FEBRUARY 13th FROM 6pm - MIDNIGHT (Eastern) for our "Lovestruck Live Sale"

*********************************************************

FREE POLYPLAB GLUE WITH EVERY ORDER!!!

We have teamed up with the fine people over at Polyp Lab to be able to provide a tube of Super Glue Gel to every customer.
It is rare that we have a coral arrive that has fallen off the plug, mainly because they are usually grown on to the plug, but everyone always needs an extra tube of glue! Check out the wonderful array of Polyp Lab products at https://www.polyplab.com

*********************************************************

Joe Knows Reefs Live Sale Rules & Info:

  • WYSIWYG corals will be posted in this thread beginning at 6pm (EDT) on Saturday February 13th.
  • 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 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 "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 2/6, 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
    I will post the exact details, however anyone wishing to do LOCAL PICKUP will be able to pickup their corals at Tideline Aquatics in Hannahan, SC on any day from Wednesday 2/17 - Saturday 2/20 during their normal business hours. After the sale, we will post a thread to sign up for local pickup. You must sign up in this thread to be able to pickup your corals at Tideline. ALSO, you will receive a GIFT CARD to Tideline for 5% of your order total.
  • Shipping will be provided by FedEx Priority Overnight service with delivery by 10:30am in most areas.
  • SHIPPING MODULE CAN BE PURCHASED HERE before the actual start of the sale. Shipping modules are available now!!!
  • 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.
  • LOCAL PICKUP
    I will post the exact details, however anyone wishing to do LOCAL PICKUP will be able to pickup their corals at Tideline Aquatics in Hannahan, SC on any day from Wednesday 2/17 - Saturday 2/20 during their normal business hours. After the sale, we will post a thread to sign up for local pickup. You must sign up in this thread to be able to pickup your corals at Tideline.

@Joe Knows Reefs Is the limit on frags 2 $1/3/5 frags total, or 2 $1, 2 $3 and 2 $5 frags?

Local Pickup - Through Tide Line - How will that work?
Sorry for the delay...


The limit is a TOTAL of 2 of the "cheapo" frags.

I am still working on exact details with Chris at Tideline but basically we will create a sign up list for local customers. You will select a day and then pickup your corals from Tideline on that day. As it stands, those days will be Wednesday 2/17 through Saturday 2/20

I have a few things to do today. Does the reduce shipping end at midnight?
 

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
