Call them and place the order with a live person. That can hopefully solve it =)

Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

It may be that the two different types of fish are shipping from separate locations.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I doubt it...they have only one location. One of the species may be on back order?

They will be putting the upside down catfish and tetras in different containers that require different boxes would be my guess, but thats just a guess.

How do I place it with a live person? Should I just call them and tell them I'd like to place an order, or what? And then what should I say if the person says, "alright, that'll be $60 shipping, and $30 for the fish."?

why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?

shipping for fish is really high because they do not want them to die neither do you. so they take a lot of precautions

Order at 1-888-842-8738

When they tell you the price, say you would like an explanation of the charges.

I know that, but they want me to pay shipping for two orders of fish instead of one. I think I'll place the order with a person, by phone.

Unfortunately, my mom never was very enthusiastic about my fishkeeping hobby, so she's making me take down my 10 gallon. Maybe the money I make from selling that will compensate for a part of the fish and driftwood. Not sure if I'll get plants, I'm really low on money, but as soon as I do have the money, I'll add some great plants!

And on the catfish, the only reason I had 5 is because AQadvisor.com recommended a group of at least 5.
I'm so glad to hear it! I've been following your threads and keeping up on your beeswax because I think we're in the same boat on some things... I've never had to adopt out fish but imagine it could be hard.

Ok, I did find a new home for the fish, but I haven't given them out yet. The guy lives about an hour away from me, so I'm waiting until the 14th, when my sister has a basketball game out there. I called him and asked if he would still meet me and take the fish if I sold any, and he said that would be fine, and I asked if he would be willing to buy any, since I'm starting a new tank, and he said he didn't buy fish, but he bred Synodontis and he would trade me some for my fish. I would still like to have the original fish I picked out, but he doesn't have any upside down catfish or tetras. So can I get any species of Synodontis (catfish) without overstocking my tank? Just... any bottomfeeders, since all my other fish swim in the top water areas?
