    Hi everyone,

    A member on Nano-Reef is setting up a group buy through VIP Reef. In order to participate, we'd have to buy 15-20 anemones between the people in our club. They'd ship all of them in one box and then I could distribute them. The rock flowers would be from VIP Reef, which specializes in really high end, ultra rock flower anemones. The group buy would get us 50% off. VIP Reef has a $40, $60, and $80 section so the anemones would only cost us $20, $30, or $40 plus shipping, which would be split between all of us participating.

    If you're interested, let me know and let me know how many you'd like and from what price sections. The price sections will determine how colorful the anemones are. The cheaper ones are usually more solid colored, or common colored but very bright. The most expensive ones are the rainbows and more rare patterns.

    They want to order soon, so let me know ASAP!

    List of people participating:
    1) Felicia (felicialynn) - 2 $40, 1 $30
    2) David (pancetta) - 1 $40, 1 $30 PAID
    3) Neuro - 1 $30 PAID
    4) F6553066 - 3 $40, 2 $30 PAID
    5) Geneva - 1 $20, 1 $30, 1 $40 PAID
    6) Jruga - 5 $20 PAID
    7) Merith - 1 $40, 1 $30 PAID
    8) Newhobby - 2 $40, 1 $30 PAID
    9) Navdeep - 1 $40 PAID
    10) nly04 - 2 $40, 2 $30 PAID
    11) Kara13 - 1 $40, 2 $30 PAID
    12) Fingerwrinkles - 3 $40 PAID

    Orders need to be finalized and payment made to me by Sunday evening July 12th!

    Here's the pricing breakdown:

    I will buy 5flower anemones. How do we coordinate which ones we want to buy. I know each has a disc number. Let me know how to do it. Other people may want the same anemone. VIP's site doesn't appear to have much more than 20 - 25. Anemones. I want this to be easy so call me at 510-655-3066

    For this group buy, we don't get to pick out specific anemones. The anemones on their site are the retail anemones, whereas the group buy is basically us buying as a wholesaler and getting a "lot" of anemones that aren't on the site since they also sell wholesale to stores. You just get to pick by price category. I've never seen VIP have an ugly anemone, so I'm sure you'll get some nice ones! Basically you just pick what price range you want, with the more expensive ones being more the rainbow and rare color ones and the cheaper ones being the more standard bright green.

    I'm waiting to hear back from the person organizing all this on Nano-Reef, so I'll keep you all posted as I get more details. We're only a few anemones away from hitting the 15 anemone minimum.

    For the group buy, they're only getting ones from 3 price categories, $40 $60 and $80. So do you want one from the $40 or $60 category? And then of course that will be half off.
