Guess I got lucky as last year this time I received several shipments that arrived fine. It's not too bad weather wise here but I always worry about the journey they take to get here. This is also a good time to make sure a signature is required for delivery. Eliminates freezing on the porch so really all we need to worry about us what it went through before arriving lol.

This time of year packages get stuck on the truck. I ask for depot pickup, at least it stays in the building.

That's probably a better option. The only time I did that though they couldn't find my package at first. After 20 min of them searching they finally found it but didn't realize it contained live animals either.

Finally one tank actually has saltwater lol. Swapped out a canister filter from my chiller at home and some live rock so hopefully the cycle gets jump started.
