Okay, so you PayPal me 50 cents and you can sponsor a snail. A dollar and you get a hermit. Anything over 5 dollars and you get a a small fish named after you... At the 10 dollar level you can name the Bellus angels that will go in my new tank...

Hehehe, the last-ditch efforts of a recent college grad to finish his new tank. : þ

Best,

Of course Mike, and there will be an annual fund drive with free cold beer and burgers on the grill at my new place.

Now get those check books out and let's start helping these unfortunate Snails that are all too often forced to live off the waste of other animals.

Hey Erik,
Maybe you should just start a homeless program for wayward Acro's and Monti's. Reefer's could bring their frags and leave them with you knowing they will be given a good home......LOL. Of course a nominal monthly fee will be charged for room and board.

What a riot!!!

I would like to see the latest copy of your IRS Form 990 before donating. I want to make sure that the majority of my donation is used for charitable purposes and not for fragging supplies like beer. :)

Tell ya what, post the necessary info and I'll sponsor 5 snails and a hermit.

I was interesting in getting a fish named after me, but Flame*Angel already named one of her new fish after me (Jonah), so it's lost some of it's lost some of its uniqueness.

Still, if the snails and hermit are well taken care of, maybe next year I'll sponsor a coral or two ;)

szidls you have a good plan here and since erik has opened his heart to all reefing kind I am sure he will stake out some realestate for these poor abandoned corals.
One thing on the snails Erik that I believe is absolutely crittical to this operation is that the snails be identified with the name or logo of the sponcering person/company. May I suggest that you purchase little flags and glue them to the snails shell, this way we can all tell where our special little snail is??? I will see if we can get you a corporate sponcer, I can just see it now, a whole fleet of Penny Salsa's snail flags bouncing around the tank:p

It might be nice if Macbeth417 could install a webcam on the tank for the benefit of those who are not near enough to excersize thier visiting priviledges regularly. Combined with the idea of a logo, I think this is a great idea. Wow.

As promised, I have made a donation for the sponsorship of 5 snails and one hermit crab. Please take good care of them.

J.Stagner I am suprised and touched that would actually help me out. However, paypal sent me this

"Important Note: Personal Accounts may not receive payments funded with a credit card. You must upgrade to a Premier or Business account before this payment will be credited to your account. To learn more, and to accept or deny this payment, please click here. "

Damned Pay Pal.

On a lighter note I got hired this evening, though with my starting sallary I will be just scraping by. Anything is better than 0 dollars and hour though, right. I will offer free naming to you J.stagner as you actually did send me funds, though paypal has forced me to return them...

I can only except funds from Paypal Balance and Personal Accounts via Pay Pal, sorry :( If I could afford to upgrade my paypal acount I wouldn't need to sell my future snails into sponsored labor.

I do like the Web Cam idea. My tank is slowly taking shape and I will look into setting up a cam so you reef junkies can spy in on it. And perhaps I can still get a few logo toting snails in there. How about a Conc with a broad-side add?

Best,

Lol, PayPal sent me a message stating simply that you had denied the payment. Didn't know the story till I saw your post.

Ah, well.... I tried.

FWIW, I may be able to come up with a spare webcam if you are interested. I'd put it on my tank, but that'd mean a little more work for me, and I try to avoid that whenever I can ;)

If you could get enough of these snail flags going it could eventually look like one of the bumper car rides.

What I have done on my tank is to install micro Onstar systems. if the snail every gets in trouble I can walk them through it, ;)

I can just see all the snails running around with '' NIKE---just do it" written on there sides. In 20 years someone will be sitting around holding a little umbrella that came out of his drink and he will say " I sure wish I would have been the guy that thought up snail sponsorship"

My concern is what will happen if my snail falls victim to a hermit and there is shell swapping going on. The people that paid "snail" price would get a free 50 cent upgrade to "hermit" status.

LOL, Mike....we could have little races - follow your snail via GPS.

Hey Chuck,
Has Erik contacted you about paying sponsor fees to Reef Frontiers? It seems only right since he will be swimming in everyone's cash.
Or do all snail sponsors have to pay seperatly? ;)

ROTFL!

Somehow or another I ended up on a land hermit crab website once. The owners found little football helmets with NFL team logos on them and evidently the hermits thought they were da bomb, lol. They'd been holding hermit crab races. I wonder if Budwieser would pay to sponsor that half-time show. :D
