Yes, you have to come down to BK to get it. I live near Pratt University where the last SWAP was held.
An alternative would be to see if a good friend is joining the GB or is just willing to stop by to pick it up and then meet up with you later.
If you choose the latter option, just let me know in the thread and in pm who is picking it up for you and that you give me permission to hand off your package to them. For liability sake, you understand.

Wow, I'll have to check out the value of having so many. I bet it would reduce how many times I need to vacuum the rocks!
I have a 57 rimless with a lot of rock and a bit of hair algae so once my tank sparkles I just may give away some hermits , and I bought empty shells so they can change clothes to go clubbing rather than kill eachother for the threads!!
THere is a $5 off code on the site that worked for me. The other thing about the packages is that you can create your own and it ends up being cheaper with free shipping. Get exactly what you want. I added a ton of medium empty shells to try to cut down on the wholesale slaughter of snails by crabs in the tank. with free shipping this is the cheapest you will find these inverts. Hopefully enough people join.
