I am just getting back into the hobby after a few years. I was looking for a reliable source of shrimp.
The shrimp arrived late and at 47 degrees. Which was the outside temp when they arrived. Wrapped in just a piece of paper in a box of packing peanuts. Minimal tape on top and bottom. 2 were pleopods up. 2 were on their sides. Despite that 7 made it through acclimation. And I believe that was due the health and quality of the shrimp. I had stated that it was cold here. and I have say that I've had plants shipped better. So I am very disappointed. I had hoped that an 'aquarium club' would take better care of their shipments, which are live animals. I will refrain from doing any 'Black Friday' ordering. Maybe try another small order in the spring.
