I've been in touch with Biota and been discussing a group buy for SoCalliReefs for Yellow Tangs. If we have enough interest they may be willing to give us a discount.

Here is how it would work:

1. People would go to the Biota website and buy as many Yellow tangs as they wanted. You would be provided with a code to indicate you are part of the group buy and get your discount, if any existed. You would pay Biota. I would NOT handle any of the money.
2. The Yellow tangs would be shipped to my facility and I would "condition" then for two weeks according the Biota protocol. (Yes, they actually have one for this type of thing.)
3. I would deliver the yellow tangs to everyone that bought them. I am considering delivering them for free, but I'm not sure I can afford the fuel cost. If I had 30 or 40 deliveries to make that could get expensive on my part. Let's see where this goes.

Comments please?

Yes. I don't know what type of discount we might get. I suppose it depends on what type of quantity we commit to buying. I may have to commit to making up the difference in quantity if we fall short in the group buy. The reason for this post is to judge interest.

I know they ship them extremely small, like 1” and have heard that they take frozen baby brine and micro pellets.
