    I need to buy a sizable CUC. Local stores want $3 apiece for snails and crabs.

    I've seen CUC online for $.50 cents apiece + shipping. But I lost the website. Anybody know where I can find such a place again?

    LiveAquaria.com from drfostersmiths, has one where you can build your own for a preset price or choose a package already assembled, not sure on the deal though might be worth checking out...

    It was Reef Cleaners. I had that website saved once before but somehow I'd lost the site address over time.

    Thanks!! :Cheers:

    I can get a giant CUC WITH overnight shipping for about $80. Thats way cheaper than local. Not to mention the last $100 I spent on CUC animals at the LFS all died within just a few days of introducing them to my tanks. Call me stupid - I probably shouldn't have ignored the fact that most of the animals in the LFS tanks were upside down and dead when I picked out the last few remaining "live" ones. Not gonna do THAT again. :grumble:
