who says it was delivered? do you have a tracking number? when i order from drs. fosters smith, you can track where the package is across its whole journey to your house, hour by hour.

i would call and ask someone.

good luck.

If you just ordered it 2 days ago and it was there the next day chances are there is definely a mix up.

Either the company is ripping you off, or your tracking number just got mixed, or it's a re-used number. USPS, fedex, UPS, they all "recycle" their tracking numbers. it's usually not until months or years later but there could always be a fluke i suppose.

good luck

If you're talking about bigalsonline.com, that happened to me too. It said it was delivered... but I think that's the day it was delivered to the shipping people. Mine came 2-3 days after the "delivery date" I've give it till next week and see if it comes. I know it's though, as I'm a very impatient person... but I would give it till next week.

I also have a couple other tanks w/o fish as right now I do not have the room/time and there is a chance of moving in the "near" future so I don't want to get more fish for them. I'm downsizing for the moment.

I saw the same thing at Big Al's. Kind of misleading if you ask me. Apparently the Deilvery Date is actually the date when they hand off the order to the shippers.
