Plan to buy Discus from Hans? Combine Shipping?

Hi, finally I plan to buy discus from http://www.discus-hans-usa.com. They are reputational breeders, and the price is very good. The shipping is $50.00 for a box where can contain +/- 30 Discus in of that size. They are considerate that this size of box FedEx handles with respect, if they ship them in a smaller box they trow it everywere around. The shipping is allways over night, they ship them out as late as possible and you will get them before 10:30am the next day.
However, I am planning to buy 5~6 small discus to start. It is a waste for such a big box. I am wondering is there anyone here want to buy discus so that we can combine shipping, to fill up the box for same shipping price? I am at Secaucus, NJ.

This is the point. The selection of discus at LFS is very limited and the price is much higher than the online seller.
