I think he was saying if by them time he gets to the fish they have passed away... Then inform the company because they were delivered at the wrong day and time. What if his wife wasn't home either?

I dont think he was saying just f**k the fish if they die who cares 8/......

I agree, I don't think the OP was meaning for it to be interpreted like that

People like you are exactly why other people stop using this app. I was simply giving the OP alittle reassurance aswell as complimenting liveaquaria. At no point did I say leave f the fish. At no point did I say anything about being careless towards the fish. Grow up and stop thinkin your better than the next person.

I thought it was a pretty silly comment myself. I knew exactly what you were saying. Don't let silly comments like this keep you from posting. There are people like me who root out the dumb, or ignorant comments.

How is dumb or ignorant? And im glad you think so highly of me. You posted "if you dont get to it in time, they have a guarantee" which is implying that "oh its ok if you dont get home and they die, the business will just send you more"... All i said was that we need to practice good husbandry and try our best to insure our fish survive. Perhaps you need to find a way to handle criticisim better (or choose your words better). Im sure im not the only person that got the wrong impression from your poorly worded post

I see why you intervened hum. Not to thread jack, but as I've stated in other threads, lots of members take this hobby very personally. Regardless of the intentions, no experienced keeper would want a delivered fish to remain in the bag more than 5 minutes unattended to upon arrival, let alone over an hour. To the OP, your concern is understandable and doing whatever you can to ensure safe acclimation is commendable. To other posters, careful with your statements, something's are just better left unsaid. Not to argue, but a guarantee is made for DOA's, not because of your inability to recieve the shipment when it's made. This is what I believe rubbed hum the wrong way, NBD lets move on we're all pals here

No harsh feelings here, would hate to see fellow hobbyists fall back on a guarantee to supplement careless husbandry

I agree to a point. I take losses hard, I take it personally, what could I have done better...? And after owning fish stores I realized not everyone felt this way. To many folks fish are like fresh flowers, they are decorations that just last a short time . That is what drove me out of the retail side. I didn't blame them for their opinions, I just didn't want to enable them by supplying them a endless stream of fish and coral. But the OP got placed in a jam. When I imported fish in bulk, the shippers were always on the verge of bankrupting me by letting fish sit on the loading ramp for days.
