Oh that's ok
Yes the box was styro lined, I have no idea why the water got so cold. But the weather around here was below freezing, and perhaps the delivery truck was cold? Or it might not be the temperature that hurt them? I can imagine a bag of dead fish can foul the water more quickly than when they were alive. But the other livestock, a nerite snail, was also DOA, which leads me to conclude the package just got too cold. Could the size of the package vs. the insulation inside be a cause? I think the package was pretty roomy for such small bags of fish.
I would love to try threadfins from Bob's again, because of the super low price which is awfully tempting....should I???? If i wait for spring, shipping will be cheaper. If I wait, the deal might go away!
I know, my water is crazy. I think only cichlid sellers have my kind of water!
I got 5 bolivians from apistofishguys. I would certainly not try GBRs as my first ram, considering my water!
