    Good question,one always asks but never get a reply. Then you call and the response is always about spending X amount else its not worth it.

    Not looking for anything right now just spent my "marine pocket money" for the month on leds from rapid.
    Reason I'm asking is because I always see the posts by sponsors of the awesome new live stock they get in but by the time I get a reply on whether they will ship to me the fish/coral I wanted is already sold or the answer is that they don't ship.

    Thanks Frans I'll contact you next time I'm looking for something

    Perhaps it would be a good idea for sponsors to state if they are wiling to ship in future? may save alot of hasstle?

    I agree with all the posts , but I think we must all remember that sponsors are not always in front of their PC's to answer PM's etc.

    I personally prefer giving me a call , booking your LS , and payment before shipping. I only hold LS for 48 hours to allow for EFT clearance.


    As for the "economic viability" , I am sure everyone can understand that it is not viable for a LFS to drive 100 km to the nearest airport (@Moolis...I am thinking about your situation) in order to send away 1 zoa colony , unless they start hiking their prices drastically...which no one will like either.:(

    Anything can be shipped same day , airport to airport for ROUGHLY R 200 via air express up to 12 kg weight. If you are willing to take your chances with SAA , it can even be cheaper !

    Corals can be shipped overnight without any issues as long as they are packed correctly.

    I guess the question is , is the price you are paying for the coral / fish good enough to warrant the shipping costs. No use in paying R 500 (example) for a Picasso clown and R 200 for shipping...then rather buy 2 , or add some hardware to make up the value in order to spread the cost.

    Just my 2C

    i always buy a few fish and corals at a time there is no point in buying one item i agree. the idea of the thread was to make people aware of which sponsors are willing to ship. the closest pet shop that stocks marines is in durban area so i end up spending more money on the petrol there and back then it would cost me to get something shipped to me.
