    Hi Folks - did you miss out on the last group buy for these gems or want more?!

    Just looking for show-of-interest and working with a LFS.

    I'm not sure we can get half off so assume some discount off full price of $40, $60, and $80. (Please see previous group buy thread for specifics).

    The difference from this group buy is we would go through one of our club sponsors, Aquatic Collection, who is looking into this for me. I'd like to tell them approximately how many anenomes our club would buy to help in their decision. So please just post below how many you want using prices above - knowing there will be a discount.

    I'd also like your opinion on whether you liked the way the corals were distributed (random drawing) the last time? Any other suggestions? Joe definitely didn't want us fighting over them! Thanks!

    Aquatic Collection is great place to buy coral, fish and others reef stuff. Staff is very nice, too.

    Last GB we got 50% off. If we have 30% off for this GB it will be awesome, too.
    About the corals random distribute, different people have difference taste. On the last GB I got four (2 of the $60/ea and 2 of the $80/ea), I only like two, the other two are small (not event an inch still now) and not what I like. I will buy four more for sure but at least I can select half and the other half is random. Just my 2cent, happy reefing.

    That my friend is one of the downsides to doing a "group buy", sometimes things are not up to the level of what you wanted. I think the last one was pretty obvious that no one was getting any "specific" ones, you simply got a "grade" of anemone for a particular price point. If you want a specific item, you need to pay full price and order that specifically :)

    Depends on colors and final pricing. I'm pretty down though!

    Any news from Aquatic Collections? How many people do we need to get this going?

    No response from AC yet - I'll check but I don't think we have enough interest at this point.
