I was getting all excited, adding to my collection, then read --------> "Regrettably, we cannot provide animals to the private sector targeting the home aquarium market. Thank you for your understanding. "
What if I DON't Understand? do I get one? :smile: J/K
I am now BUMMED OUT!!!
They should remember, who pays their bills. some of our tax dollars.

MrED, I think the restriction is not by choice but BECAUSE they are funded by tax dollars and limited to educational institutions. However, I am curious about the liquidation and if this means they are closing. If so all bets may be off as far as the home market goes. I wrote (and left a voice mail) to see what's up as I happen to have an available tank ... or two.

No, they're not shutting down right now - it's a complicated situation - but they have to find homes for the cephs they have, most of which are too large for home aquariums. As I mentioned, the bimacs have all been spoken for.

I am new to this and just got a bimac from them last week. I am an AP teacher and it is in my classroom. No one mentioned anything about going out of buisiness...
