I received a box USPS Friday from someone on here without issue , when the mail-carrier read " live fish " on the box he almost wet himself , could not believe there were really fish in the box. He was so gentle with the box when he handed it to me , after coming half way across the country and bounced around in how many shipping hubs by different machines , conveyer belts and sets of hands I thought it was a little humorous that he handed it to me the way he did.

No casualties on it's arrival though.

I pray for such an episode as above!
Poppa and Brook you are not forgotten but life has gotten in my way of fish again.
I have foam and will hopefully ship Mon to both of you!
I could ship tomorrow(Sat), but feel Mon is a better shot for all of us.
Poppa say how many you WANT not need(for real!).
Brook one of my best males for you unless I hear differently!
I am sorry for my "timming" but also feel the best things in life are worth waiting for?
This has to work out eventually as I would not have made it this far (breeding rams )and many other facets of life if I gave up every time I faced adversity.

I pray to be able to ship Monday as I hope to work local(not 3+ hours round trip daily like last week!) and send you a bunch dude!
Some from the Yellow line also!
QT my fish P as I am not sure if the yellows are tough on each other or what?
I have lost 3 from the 30b over the last 4 weeks that I can not put my finger on(think the males are "taking care of business" IMO)but.......
B don't be nervous as the male for you will come from a great set of fish that have been in a 33long for the last 3 months(completely separated from all others) and look to the next batch of "keepers" for my breeding stock.
They are a great looking fast growing bunch!
I have not seen a GBR last more then 2 +years yet myself so I am looking to re new my breeding line and will probably be ordering from Yunite again this season to mix in my lines again.
Thanks to both of you for your patience!
Hope it pays off for all of us!

Sent two packages this am!
White foam not foil faced,labled live fish.
The woman at ps asked if I needed any special handling and had no other questions?
She was very surprised my other box did not make it and said the foil faced foam should not have been the problem???
Then she said I should file claim online for full $50 (after asking what my fish would cost to replace).
I will see how this all turns out.
She seemed surprised the box made it from Mass to Ga only to be returned with no water damage on the top....
She seemed even more surprised when I said the package is still being tracked.
IT IS STILL BEING TRACKED TODAY( ask Poppa as he has the first tracking number and even 1 minute ago it is still somewhere between Mass and destination!!!)
I really hope Brook and Poppa get their fish !!!!!!

You should drive to where the package is supposed to be and see if you can pick up your fish Just kidding but that would be fun.
