I wish you would offer phyto as a single species. I'd like to get my culture going again and would get copepods at the same time.
Tim

We would definitely love to offer that one day. We don't currently do it because the logistics are a bit challenging on harvesting/shipping day. If we ever get to the point where we can hire somebody (right now it's just my wife and myself) then that's probably the first thing we would add!

In the meantime if you need a good single species phyto option, @Eldredge is a fantastic source!

Will there happen to be a restock of berghias before tomorrow night? The last ones I ordered disappeared after a day a few months ago :(. At the time I had hermit crabs and returned them after they kept nocking down my corals and now just have a cleaner shrimp and a pair of clownfish.

Oh no! We will have more on the website Wednesday morning and we're going to leave the discount code working for a bit longer!

For those who don't know, we treat your pods and phyto as well as other vendors treat high end coral:

1. We ship exclusively in biodegradable styrofoam boxes to keep your pods and phyto alive and thriving even in these cold temperatures. We NEVER charge box fees.

2. We check the weather on every order before shipping, adding heat packs or ice packs as needed to ensure live arrival.

3. We have a full satisfaction guarantee. If anything goes wrong, shoot us a message and we'll reship your order for free. No photos, videos, or forms are needed.

We're a small husband and wife business, and every single customer really does matter. That's the Dinkins Difference.

Y'all were generous with your amphipod orders last weekend so we're going to let the cultures rest this week. We anticipate putting more on the site next Wednesday.

The good news is that we have plenty of phyto and pods. Have you fed your reef today?

Saturday bump!

By the way, if anybody is interested, my wife Ashley is the co-host of a 25-day long giveaway show on Facebook, with lots of vendors donating prizes. You can make a comment on the daily thread to have a chance of winning, or can just watch the show and have fun (Ashley and her cohost Tian Sorg are hilarious together).

If you'd like, join the group Tank Talk With Tian and tune in at 7 PM Central (most nights) from now until Christmas Day. Reef2Reef is even donating a prize for the giveaway!

We're shipping again tomorrow, so it's not too late to get your orders in for shipping this week!

P.S. We'll have both berghia and amphipods back up on the website Wednesday morning.

Our last shipping day before the holidays will be Tuesday, December 12. Anything you order by 3 PM Central Time that day will ship that day. We are shipping all orders for second day delivery at no extra charge.

Because of last-minute holiday shopping, all the shipping companies tend to experience massive delays the week before Christmas, and the backlog doesn't begin to ease until after New Years. We don't want any packages to get delayed and held over the weekend (which sometimes results in our live plants/animals not surviving), so it's safest to avoid shipping live goods during this season of extreme delays.

Accordingly, we will resume shipping Monday, January 8.

If you have a subscription with us, we'll be sending you an email to see if you'd like your order to ship next week or if you'd prefer to wait until January.

Thank you so much for Thinkin' Dinkins!

Bump! Get your orders in now to receive them next week. We will pause shipping from December 13 - January 8 due to anticipated holiday shipping delays.
