    Here's the deal. REEFer Madness has a great deal going on right now. You can buy 40 frags from them for $325.00 including shipping. They will also add four free. That makes a total of 44 aquacultered frags. The price per frag comes out to $7.39. It was discussed during the June meeting that we go in and place a group order. If you are interested please visit their website for details. I will make this a poll thread because you can order a mix of SPS, LPS, zoos and rics. Please vote on what you'd be most likely to order. Also please post how many you'd like. Let's see how this goes and we can discuss when to place an order later in the week.

    I was trying to hold off on corals for a while but any chance to get some of the stuff from Chris might be worth taking part in.

    I could do $40. I would probably be interested in any of them, but zoos the least unless they are amazing.

    Leathers are :pooh: HEHE.

    Also the only way I think we could do this fairly would be to draw numbers then do a round robin type selection.

    Let me know how you guys plan on splitting it out and I might do more $$, but I have kinda got to the point to where I would rather pay more and know what I'm getting up front. So I would most likely just put 40$ towards the pack and maybe hand select a coral.

    Let me know

    Most people that deal with chris are picky... thats why they order from him.

    You guys won't be disappointed in the quality. Also I would recommend reading his warranty policy... I believe he changed it so that you have to pick it up from a fedex location and it has to be less than 90 degrees or something like that....

    Something we should read up on, because i know he changed it a couple months back.

    BTW tell bill I can let some blue zoos go for $10 a polyp.

    Just kidding if he really wants some i'll get a couple polyps off and they can grow for him, but I really like those and want to have a large colony of them.

    Why i'm kinda hesitant to frag my little frag to much.

    I'll keep a running total as we go here. I'm good for about $56.00 myself. With that we are looking around $152 thus far. I think a random draw would be good, Brandon. From here on out let's just assume the frags are $8.00 a piece. Please post the amount you are willing to spend that is divisible by 8.

    I think your nicer items from him would be SPS.

    Its kinda his area of interest.

    Im like brandon, space is limited and Ive learned to be more pickey to avoid wasting space. Ill get in at 5 corals = $40 . I prefer lps,rics, some sps. I agree on a draw as well, although when doing this type of order people are gonna get mad nomatter what happens, it a gamble what you get in a box in the first place, then its a gamble if one of the other people pick the corals you wanted first. well figure something out though. even if you only go home with one coral you really like you still got a good deal.

    Count me in for 4 frags. $32 for those that are mathmatically challenged. I would be interested in rics, zoas or lps. The main things I am looking for are acans/blastos and favia in the LPS family. If anyone gets some things they don't want the frag swap is coming up. I'm sure we could sell them for $10 at the swap. Or possibly trade them among us. That way no one is stuck with something they don't want. When are we going to place the order?

    Also if we decided to the 30 frag pack I would still do $40.

    Just another option.
