Water temp

I just got the montipora cap I bought on ebay. It was shipped overnite from Ohio...I live in PA. I paid extra to have heat packs included, but there were NONE. As soon as I opened the box and picked up the bag I knew I was in trouble. The water in the bag was 56 degrees. I am slowly drip acclimating it now. What do you all think? Is the amount of time it was in 56 degree water fatal? It's only been an hour now, but my hopes aren't very high.

Depends on how long it was 56*. Any signs of bleaching?

I hate to say it, but I would expect the worse.

Hard to say how long it was at that temp, but assuming he took it to the FexEd place at maybe 4 PM for the last pick up and I recieved it about 11 AM, I would take a guess it had to be at least 8 hrs.

I e-mailed him the minute I opened the bag and took the water temp. He said "sorry about not putting in the heat pack" and to let him know if it survives.

I'll try to get a pic of it later when I put it in my tank. Right now I don't see any bleaching, just looks likes there's a little clear stringy mucous coming off it.

Well this doesn't look good at all, but I can't say I'm surpised. I'm waiting to hear back from the guy I bought it from and see what he is going to do.

Anyone interested in a nice monti cap? LOL



The guy seems real sincere and is going to send me another one, hopefully with a heat pack this time.

Don't count it out!!! Monty caps are wimpy, yet resilient!!! It can come back. If the bleaching continues (it does not liok like RTM to me, I would frag a couple of edges with decent color, and see if you can't grow it out.
