Has anyone used this site before? I remember about two years ago I tried to order a figure 8 puffer fish for an old 10 gal
. It said it would be shipped within 4 days. I bought aquarium salt, snails, everything, then after a week with no delivery they emailed me saying they refunded me because they didn't have any in stock.
Now I'm looking into a future green spotted puffer, and it says the option "add to cart." This time around I noticed they added a label next to a species that indicates if it's out of stock.
But how reliable is this? Can I really depend on a little label next to an electronic image to completely trust what I'm about to buy? How do I know that the site "miscalculated" again and realized they didn't have any for shipment AFTER I agreed to purchasing one?
Has anyone ever bought from this site? Can anyone tell me the quality that the fish were in when you received them?
And also as a bonus question, if anyone can answer this for me. I recently moved from NYC to a suburb about 20 minutes away, but it's a lot different here. In NYC I received livestock through mail a fair amount, and even if I came home late from school I haven't had any dead on arrival once because the doorman keeps packages inside the lobby at proper room temperature. Now we live in a full blown house, with a mailbox, everything. How do you guys make sure you receive your package safely and on time if you live in rural or suburban areas? Thanks.
