i got 20 2" rhoms from him and they all died within a week because of some weird fungus. i also bought 20 of the reds you speak of and they did great. they are very small though. you will need to feed bloodworms and beefheart to them and fatten them up quick.
Yeah, I hope they do okay. I don't usually purchase mail order fish. They will have the 75 all to themselves as I relocated the previous tennants to the new 90. I will probably have to turn the intakes down some to keep the little guys from being sucked in. I've never purchased any this small before but they grow fast. Hopefully!
The P's didn't arrive today. Pedro shipped them express mail. The USPS sucks! My Dad and Brother both retired from there and it sucks more today than back then.
If you're shipping fish you should find another courrier. The USPS uses FedEx to fly all of their packages anyway so you just as well use FedEX. FedEx also loads all their sh*t on the plane first so if they run out of room and your USPS package is still sitting there, you're just fucked and it will arrive late.
I wouldn't worry about these fish arriving a day late if it wasn't so f*cking cold out.
By the way, if you want to save money on sending packages through the mail, just mail it overnight express on Friday. FedEx doesn't fly on the weekend so there's no way your package will arrive. Then you can get a refund and your package ships for free!
We'll see how many of the little bastards survive. :veryangry: :veryangry: :veryangry: :veryangry: :veryangry:
P's won't be here until Friday! The Post office said that's the scheduled delivery date. WTF??? That's Express mail overnight??? 3 days???
Anything the government has anything to do with is fucked!
I remember a time when people actually gave a sh*t about how well they did their job. Postal workers are the a bunch of overpaid, uncaring pieces of sh*t!!!
I even have a mail delivery person who won't deliver my mail if my dog is barking at her through the bay window. He's a Beagle! It's not like he's going to bust through the safety glass and maul her! :veryangry:
I feel bad for you.
I just had a yellow natt delivered tuesday by airborn express and they left it on the wrong door step. took them 3 hours to deliver it too me. It was packed with heat pads and Styrofoam (like pedro, I have received fish from him). The water was definitely colder than it should have been probably about 70 degrees. It was about 30 degrees outside. Thankfully my tern made it ok.
I hope everything works out for you but 3 days......I dont know.
