(TFDfish.com) I will be placing an order this Friday since they currently have 2" discus for sale at $6.00 each and I want to buy a group of 8 of them, along with three other groups of fish.
I spoke with a Pete, and he said the ph is 7.5. Acclimation time to our 6.5+/- water is about two hours or so. I ordered fish from them one time before, and the overnight shipping for one box was $44.00. Each box can hold about 7 bags of fish.
-I require 1/2 the money up front for your order, prior to me placing the order. Money sent as gift or add 5.5% if sending the money by paypal.
-I require your phone number or direct e-mail
-You will be notified after I place the order.
-You will be notified when the order arrives at my house.
-You will pick up the order within 3 hours of it arriving.
-I am not liable for any DOA.
-I do not have storage space for multiple bags of fish. I do have heatpacks to keep your fish comfortable while they wait for you.
-If you don't pick up the fish the day they come in, I'll have to start the acclimation process for them to survive the night. $15.00 charge per bag of fish to acclimate them in one of my spare tanks.
-I know I'm being anal with the rules but eh, that's just me!
-Message me with your phone number and I'll give you a call to discuss what you want to buy.
-Price lists/specials are available online at their website!
-I will not profit from this, if anything though I'll be able to save a few dollars on shipping by spreading the cost to others.
In case you don't know or you don't do the group order, there's a fish store in Coram called 'Aqua Hut' I haven't been there in a while, but they usually have a large selection of Discus dirt cheap. Again haven't been there in a while, but thought I'd mention it.
