reputable vendors would never ship live stock via ground .
livestock is always shipped overnight by 12 O'clock
there is only one vendor I know of that would ship livestock via ground
and I wouldn't trust them with the air I breath.
all live stock should be quarantined for at-least 14 days
Tangs are known to have ick out breaks from stress from travel not something you want to introduce to your tank.
by the way what size tank do you have? as tangs require large tanks because they are almost always active
PM me if you want a list of reputable vendors you can trust , I do a lot of online purchases so I can point you in the right direction for livestock and coral
