Dear Sea Dwellers,
Another new offering from Sea Dwelling Creatures!  Even with the continued success we have been having, thanks to all of your support, we are pushing even further to show our loyal customers how dedicated we truly are to each and every one of you and your customers.  We have added yet another “Featured Specials” section that will be limited to just a few items, but at absolutely rock bottom pricing!   As you will see, it says, “Our loss is your gain” and that is the absolute truth!  We will rotate these specials each week and keep it interesting for you all.  We hope you can use these great specials to boost sales, profits and excitement.  We thank you!
Last week was one of those magical weeks when all the moons align and the variety is just clicking!  This week we have added some Australian fish and coral into the mix which adds to the flavor.  We have our second batch of the new coral from Australia which made a big stir at the reefapalooza last weekend.  We have found this coral to be very hardy and with the green color, a nice looking coral as well.
As the industry churns, we embrace it’s momentum and are further adding to the coral farming sector.  We will continue to expand into the coral sector with new and more affordable farmed corals for your customers.  The coral packages on both the cultured and wild harvested section expand and are becoming more and more affordable for you all.  Like I spoke about last week, this is truly the heart of the hobby and we urge you all to make sure you are offering and educating your customers to support sector of the industry.
Thanks for all those showing continued support each week….Everyone here really appreciates it.
Best regards to all,
Eric and the whole SDC Crew!

October 25th Newsletter

Dear Sea Dwellers,
This weekend was the local Reefapalooza event that brings coral farmers from across the country together with wholesalers, manufactures, retailers and hobbyists.  It was another impressive display of how far the hobby has come in such a short time.
Just 5 years ago, I don’t think there were a fraction of the coral farmers that there are now.  The amazing variety and colors that are being offered as fragmented corals is staggering.
One point I want to get across to everyone here, is that I am fairly certain that this is the heart of the hobby.  If you are a retailer, I highly suggest you get on this band wagon of growing and fragging corals in your shops not only to promote a sustainable industry, but to bring the excitement and cost effectiveness back to your customers.  Education, affordability and sustainability (all big words for me…lol) is what this sector of our industry brings.
Turns out by luck, we have just received a large shipment of captive raised corals to compliment the large variety of frags we already have in stock growing out.
If you are one of those stores that has not started to offer captive raised frags/corals, get started inexpensively by purchasing one or more frag racks that we offer, along with some frag plugs, and you are in business.  Once you get your local market going, branch out and grow your own, frag your stock, get online and expand your customer base etc….it’s addicting and very rewarding.
Thanks for all those showing continued support each week….Everyone here really appreciates it.
Best regards to all,
Eric and the whole SDC Crew!

Dear Sea Dwellers,
The 7-11 Holiday Special is back!  For those of you who remember, last year we started this program to reward our loyal customers that order with us at least 7 times over the next 11 weeks.  The dates are October 5th through December 17th to quality for this rebate program.  We are going to be passing out flyers in the outgoing orders, and we hope all of you will take part.  Please see the flyer for full details.  You must average at least $500.00 to qualify, and of course make at least 7 orders from now until December 17th.  The higher your average order, the more your rebate will be.  I hope you all enjoy the savings and know that we appreciate you choosing us as your livestock supplier.
In the spirit of ROCKtober, we are hoping to “Rock” you all with our great deals, awesome variety and consistent quality.  The Live Rock from Fiji just came in this weekend, so it’s fresh as can be and ready to be shipped to you all.
