They probably didn’t send them and said they “perished” or something.

A colin's bonded pair was on today's sneak peek. I was curious to see if it was going to go for $80 or $800, but it didn't make today's update.

I tried snagging them. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be 799.99 not 79.99.

Yep, the colin's pair is on DD again today. $799.99.

Wonder if it is the same pair as before or if they actually sold the previous pair to someone for $79.99.

That's reasonable. Doubt you'd find many online retailers who would honor a price mistake of that magnitude. Contact the buyer letting them know the price was a mistake, give them a good discount code and repost the item.

When these price glitches occur, kevin has always honored and completed the deal. Not sure if that policy has changed since Petco took over.

I would strap a mattress on my back for that quick cash...on a more serious note aside and failed light humor what sort of longevity and success are we talking about with that sort of price? I'm guessing same 14 day guarantee.

Finally was able to get a Blueline angel. Been trying to find a small one for almost 2 years. I was surprised the price was pretty reasonable. I think I was checked out within 15 seconds of it being posted

So cute! Why didn't you get a baby from Poma?

Didn’t see that they finally had them back in stock. This one was $125 cheaper too but I probably would have went with Poma if I saw them. I had marked them on my wish list on their site but never got a notification. Hopefully this little wild caught one will do just as well.

Blue line made it today. It’s incredibly small (nickel size at most). Looks very healthy though. They shipped it in a huge bag and it is so small I actually couldn’t find it in the blacked out bag they use for a few mins. It was pressed up in a fold in the bag. Not eating yet but it out exploring my little 30g quarantine reef.
