    If any of you want to go in on a coral order after the 20th let me know, we can save on shipping. I was thinking about ordering from http://www.atlantisaquarium.net/ .  But I'm open to other places if anyone has a preference.  I don't have to work much during christmas/new years so I can be there for delivery.

    I'd wait till after the new year now, shipping is risky with the holidays and weather we've been getting recently. This is the last week for many retailers to ship.

    That might be a good idea, if I'm at work the secretaries will alway sign for it and hold it for me.

    Its bad idea any slight hiccup in the weather and the overnight deliver gets delayed to.

    I had FED EX kill $300 worth of coral and they didn't think they had any liable for an overnight package tanking 5 days.

    I've ordered several times in the winter and have not had any issues as of yet (knock's on wood).

    We can hold off for a bit, I just thought it would be good to get a group order so we can save on some shipping.  If anyone will be home we can have the package sent to their house or I can have it delivered to work and bring it home.  I also saw some cool stuff at http://www.sharkysreef.com that I might make a move on.  I ordered from them in the past and they have great shipping rates to this area.

    Just a thought. If anyone is interested I was talking to the Uber frags guys about possible going up there and buying directly from them. The bigger guy is about to open store and quite a few of the Rockford crew are lousy with frags and it would be nice to see some new systems.

    Hand picking and paying $40 for gas beats $40 shipping anyday.
