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!

Although we have paused shipping for the holidays, you can still go ahead and place your order for shipping after New Years. This is also a great time to take advantage of our 20 percent off gift cards!

Hey everybody! Just a little more info on our shipping pause -

Unfortunately the week before Christmas, UPS shipping volume skyrockets and causes extreme delays. We learned this the hard way last year. Such delays can be deadly for live goods. The backlog disrupts operations for the next couple weeks (both four day weeks due to Christmas and New Years).

We are more than happy to ship an order to you this Monday using two day shipping at no extra cost. It will most likely make it. We normally want to offer customers certainty, though, which is why we paused shipping during this higher risk period.

Please just let us know if you need anything urgently - we completely understand that fish need to eat!

Just a reminder to everybody that while we aren't confident in regular UPS shipping this week and thus have paused shipping, we are available for any urgent pod or phyto needs - just let me know.

Don't forget about our 20 percent off gift cards sale! Use code GIFTCARD at checkout.

Bump! Stock up on those gift cards and/or go ahead and get your orders in for when we resume shipping. We can take a few special requests for shipping on January 3 if anybody has an urgent need. Otherwise shipping will resume January 8.

While we always have phyto and pods, right now we also have a very limited supply of berghia and amphipods as well. They probably won't last much longer!

Remember to use code GIFTCARD at checkout for 20% off all of our gift cards.

(Gift cards are available for use immediately. So you could effectively turn that into 20% off any order simply by first buying a gift card.)
