May 2007 – “The Great Shrimpster Order”
Once again NJAGC and its members have executed another great group order!
NJAGC member Brian Waldbaum, owner/operator of Hydropolis, an online aquarium plant and dry good store, offered members a huge discount on an amazing variety of aquarium live stock.
It didn’t’t take NJAGC long to take Hydropolis up on the offer and thanks to the work of members Paula B and Glenn McCreedy “The Great Shrimpster Order” was born!
Paula and Glenn organized the deal – Who was in for what, how many, and how much was owed.
Brian placed the order, picked it up at JFK Airport and even delivered the goodies to the NJAGC. Talk about customer service!
Ingo documented the pickup process once Brian delivered them to Walter’s place.
In attendance for the pickup were: Walter, Rhonda, Paula, Mike, Sergio, Glenn, Brian, and Ingo.
On deck for moral support: Walter’s wife and son.
And here are some photos from the “Great Shrimpster Order” pickup…
(next to it is some Flourite for Glenn, not shrimp food)
She only ended up with, I believe, about 300 Bamboo shrimp for her 10G tank
Ingo had to remove some platies from the tank as they were getting too aggressive and tried to nip my poor babies.
The A. Petite seems like it sure could use some shrimp for cleaning!
187 Amano shrimp and 50 Bamboo shrimp all at an amazingly generous discount!

Walter ( Karen and Joseph too) for letting everyone pickup there!
Paula and Glenn for the arrangements on the forum!
Ingo for the photography, and Ingo and Mike for the write-up!
And thanks to NJAGC members for their participation in the order!
