Hi everyone!

That time again! The GHA and the bubble algae are flourishing!

If you would like to participate in the Irvine Reefcleaners group buy, I have initiated an order with overnight UPS delivery. At $45, if we get 4 groups buyers, that's only $11.25 apiece for shipping, which is reasonable for inverts at ReefCleaners prices. If we get too many buyers or extra large orders, John has to split into two UPS shipments, so we will aim for 4 buyers in the group buy with some flexibility.

Please message me if you would like to add an order and what you would like. @Reefer Madness

Shipping is tentatively next Wednesday for Thursday AM arrival (usually around 10am). Please get orders in by Monday.

This is how it works:
1. I place your order as add-on to mine (if within reason.. >$100 in inverts and we'll talk).
2. When the order arrives at my Irvine office, I part out the inverts in their bags; where multiple orders are combined in a single bag (e.g. 20 astraeas / 2 orders), I will open the bag and acclimate the inverts in my office to ensure they don't succumb to ammonia poisoning. If the bag is looking too yellow or nasty, I may acclimate in any case, but will confer with you about it.
3. It usually takes me until noon-ish to get all of the orders sorted depending on meetings and number of buyers.
4. I will record all DOAs and photo them for refunds.
5. When you arrive at my Irvine office for pick-up, you can check the order and condition of inverts and then pay me back by Venmo/Paypal/Zelle/Cash/Vegas vouchers/etc. For those a bit further away, we can discuss.
6. You will only pay for what arrives alive. Please keep close tabs on your inverts during the first 24hr and take pics and send them to me if any don't make it. I'll work on refunds.
7. Enjoy your new sparkling clean tank!

Message me if you want in. Thanks!

Still time to join group buy. Max $11.25 shipping to join, and marginally less if we go over 4 buyers ($9, $7.50, etc).

Doesn’t he do free shipping over 65 ?
Excellent question, thanks! That is for USPS Priority Mail shipping only. I always get UPS overnight shipping, as I find it helps a massive amount in having your CUC arrive alive and happy. I know there are more robust species that can likely make the 2 day shipping just fine, but there are also a number of inverts that he won't ship USPS at all (the ones with a "*" next to them--for ex, if you want >3 trochus, you have to send UPS).

The group buy at least helps bring down the $45 overnight shipping cost to $11.25 or less!

Where in Irvine are you located? I'm in RSM.
Hi Isaac,
During work hours I am in Irvine next to the Spectrum on Technology Drive. After work, in Irvine at Culver and Walnut off the 5. I'm almost at my limit of what I can handle as a group buy, so let me know if you want anything! I'll be closing this thread after the next group buyer.
Cheers, Joe

Thank you everyone that participated in the group buy. Another successful order from ReefCleaners. Only one DOA out of 4 full silver bubble-wrap bags!

Now for the real test: clearing up that nuisance algae and pests!
