OHH NO!! :(
That's terrible!! I have only had fish shipped to my house once and it went nothing like that! Have you contacted the shipper (company) about the issue? Did you take pics of the fish in the condition of which they were shipped to show them? I am soo sorry this happened to you how awful! I usually have my LFS to order me fish and this doesn't happen to them either. It just sounds like the shipper was careless and you should address the matter asap with them. I hope the poor babies you did manage to save pulls through.

Hey Bore, I did take photos and contacted the fish company. They got back to me and are giving me a refund for the DOA fish and the missing fish, they said that sometimes if the bags are too full of air the air can expand and burst the bag but to me it looks like the bags were torn not burst. And if this is a risk then the fish should have all been double bagged for transport. They did not say anything about the sickness. I gues the bags could have burst from mishandling by the shipper, I tried calling but got an answering machine all day so I'm going to try again on Monday. As for the fish that weren't DOA, the bristlenose seems okay but his tattered fins bother me a lot, hopefully they will grow back uneventfully, the pygmy corys are tough little cookies and are zooming around the tank as if nothing happened, they are so darn cute! I lost 2 more rummys and the rest have not eaten yet. The neon green stripe cory is the most active and he looks very healthy but I felt bad that he did not have his other 2 playmates that I originally ordered so I went to the lfs and got him a bronze cory to be friends with until I can find some more of his kind. I'm really glad I did because those two are like peas in a pod now, they go everywhere together swimming side by side, its as if they are glued at the hip:) Its just a waiting game now to see how the other fish get on *sigh*
