Folks,

 

I am ordering a bunch of caves from Plecocaves.com but talking with the owner the cost of shipping is absolutely rude to Canada. Having said, Angelfins is the Canadian retailer for them but only carry some of their products.

 

Some of what I want to order are the handmade caves, etc. I have already given my list to Brantley at Plecocaves.com so that Angelfins can include it in their next order and then the shipping to us wont be stupid. He is also willing to give anyone on this order 20% off his pricing.

 

So if you guys want anything from Plecocaves.com, let me know..... I can tally a list and then perhaps a 20% discount code can be created from Angelfins for your orders.....

I would assume so......... I will your Medium Cave pack to the list of WANTS. Once I send Brantly my list and everyone elses then I assume Anfelfins will place their order with him. I will then propose the coupon code that maybe I can post here so that we can then order from angelfins. I will give this post a few days before letting Brantley know.

Its the assortment that they show when you click on the Canada Pleco Pack. Unfortunately the ones I would like to order are not stocked by Angelfins and the hassle factor of trying to co-ordinate them coming up to Canada with Angelfins and them then tacking on extra $$$, which has not been determined is putting me off this order. If it was simple I probably would have ordered by now but its becoming too much of a hassle. Brantley says it would cost $180USD just to ship my order from him to me, never mind the cost of the caves.......

 

I am looking into setting up time with a place that does pottery (Stoneware to be exact) and making my own and firing them. Stoneware clay in Canada is about $35/lb so I can probably do it that way for a whole lot less and make a bunch of handmade caves myself.

What sizes are you looking for? I've got a few boxes of his caves here that I'm not doing anything will. From small to huge ones.

I doubt I will order from that European site. Nice stuff but I still want to order from Brantley if I can make the numbers work. Yes I can probably do it for cheaper if I do it myself but then there's the hassle factor and time delay. Still working with Brantley to figure out a solution. Wish Angelfins carried ALL his stuff.

Rich, I'm looking for about 10 large handmade ones, 10 triangle or D shaped ones, maybe a couple of large 4"...... that is my staple anyways. There is some other stuff but...... I already have round caves...... not looking for anymore round ones.

Nope.... still waiting on my stuff too. Paid for it Dec 6th........ and still nothing. Jarmilla at Angelfins said that Brantley was still making them.

 

Thought the turn around time would be quicker than this. These are the last items I am waiting on to set up my new tank......

 

Hopefully soon......

Ya I got an email from her a few days ago and she said it will still be a week or 2. So that probably means more like 2 to 3 weeks. Definitely thought this would be quicker too
