    I wanted to see if anyone is interested in a group CUC order. I'm happy to organize it. Looking at Reeftopia.com

    Post here if you are interested and what you are interested in. Don't forget to look at the items they have listed for 'lot prices'. Often it only takes a2 or 3 people that want the same item, to qualify for some of the lot priced items. Then, any quantity of that item over the lot quantity listed gets the same pricing.

    I'm interested in 2 or 3 emerald crabs and some small blue hermit crabs.

    Chris wants a mixed package CUC - about $50 worth of stuff (nothing specific yet) and 6 peppermint shrimp.

    Free shipping is at $125 - this is getting close, but not there. Also currently the peppermint shrimp are out of stock.

    Anyone else interested?? I can check on Monday as to when the peppermint shrimp may be available.

    I'll take 3 if you get 3 emerald crabs so we can get the discount. 6 blue hermits and 2 peppermint shrimp if they can get them

    Might want to make sure that Flo is not going to affect the order shipment. Probably far enough north that it wont, but I know he has hurricanes interfere from time to time.

    I checked their website again this morning, and no indication of problems. So, hopefully it will be good.

    Thanks for your details, Chris. Doesn't look like we will have enough for any major lot orders, unless someone decides to join the buy.

    I will put the details together and post a summary sometime tomorrow, in case anyone wants to tweek their order a bit. I plan to place the order on Sunday evening @5pm for delivery on Tuesday.

    If the group order has not grown to large to keep track of, I would take 2 emerald crabs. Thank you

    Wow - emerald crab seem to be on everyone's want list. I'll look closely tomorrow, but I don't see any reason these items can't be added to the order.
