I completely understand the nervous feeling, I know that people buy sell fish online all the time, and fish are being shipped every day with no problem, it is that first time experiencing I think. I would definitly suggest looking at the reviews of the seller on aquabid and see what people have to say, along with how long they have been shipping fish. The other thing I would say is to make sure to take the time to acclimate them to your water correctly and not just dump them in your water. With the fish that I buy locally I let them adjust to the tank temp and then put them in, but I know that the water at the store is the same as the water I have at home. But definitly going to do it correctly with these guys.

Just a quick update... I recieved my corys today in the mail, everyone so far looks okay. Have the bag floating in the aquarium right now to match the water temp. Had a little bit of a cold spell the last couple of days here so the water temps are definitly different. After having a chance to warm the water up a bit, I will start acclimating their water to mine. Luckily still have an hour before I need to go to work.
