Sorry everyone, I tried to merge the original thread to the "our first group buy" thread and then realized that was too confusing. This is Scott's original post.
Hello "Aquarium Club" finally got some time to work out a system to do this that we think is going to benefit everyone.

ORA has great corals, they come fully encrusted on a frag plug, are hardy , and are some of my favorites in the hobby. Prices will be pm'd upon request and prices will also be given based on when you are going to pick up the coral... delivery day- Wednesday 12 or Thursday 13-Thursday 20 (let me know when you will pick up in your contact). The availability list is as of last week so i cannot assure you every coral will come in and if not i am sorry and we will be getting in extra corals for the store and will offer you one of these at the same discount to compensate for your specific one not being available.

If you request a coral to be ordered please realize to get the discount you have to pick up the coral in the time specified.

If you request a coral to be ordered please do not back out of the deal. We would like to continually offer more deals and specials for the club, but will not be able to do so if left with extra overstocked corals.

Ok guys check this site for the looks of the mother colonies (they use natural light) www.orafarm.com. The new and limited corals are a little hard to find but keep an eye on liveaquaria's diver's den to get the idea (the two new ones we're putting up are both supposedly very nice I haven't personally seen them). The limited corals will be offered to the first private message. if they receive the price and accept- the coral will be theirs, if not the next in line will be contacted. As corals are no longer available I will post the ones that are gone.

Cheers,

For further clarification of the group buy discount policy:

We cannot offer corals for pick and choose at the discount price. We will only order what you specifically intend to buy to prevent overstocking.

This is a fantastic opportunity folks! Take advantage of this great deal, but also keep in mind that you need to buy whatever you order.

Thanks so much to Craig and Scott for getting this group buy together!

I can't wait to pick up my new friends tomorrow. Pics will be posted as soon as then get into the tank (after treatment with Interceptor and iodine - no, I don't have a QT tank).

Hey "aquarium club",

Quick update that I hope doesn't throw too big a monkey wrench in everyone's plans. The corals were ordered and all seemed to be in stock, by the salespersons account, but the processing time for ORA is 48 hours (this was a miscommunication between me and craig) so the delivery date for pickup will be Thursday instead of Wednesday.

Sorry guys if there is anything i can do other than get the corals here tomorrow for you let me know.

Thanks,

ewwww... i'm not sure i will be able to make it Thursday or not, if not it will have to be Saturday... I have to specifically ask to get off at a certain time and you have to ask Monday morning (unless of emergency)

Sorry guys.

The turn-around for our normal orders is 24 hours, ORA orders are 48. Because of this mistake i will give the Wednesday pickup price through Saturday, hopefully this will allow everyone to come in and pick up their corals for the extra discount price.

If you would like to still pick up your coral the day they arrive... now on Thursday, let me know and i will leave them in the heated insulated box until you can make it. My corals will be in the box until 7:30pm when I get home. I have done this before and the corals have always done great.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

Thanks again,

I will be by Thursday, it actually is the only dy I have off at a decent time this entire week, so this works out for me.

Any Idea about what time they'll be in?
