I agree 100% with Mikaila that is way to many fish to die in a single shipping. Please do tell us how are they shipped? I have purchased fish on several occassions and have never recieved dead fish. I do not even pay for the priority shipping only express and they come within 2-3 days.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

They ship next day fedex. Each kind of fish is in its own bag and they are all shipped in a styrofoam box. At times there is packs for cool or heat. I would think the shipping method is fine. At this point I have lost all 20 cardinals. And a few others. This is why I was looking for a better place with better quality fish. I have a lot of fish from them, most of them came from liveaquaria. There just isn't a place around that I can do any better. At least they have a 14 day warantee. That's my sole consolation for now.

So all 20 cardinals were in one bag?

BTW calmwater, I think you meant priority not express... which yes I've only ever had fish shipped priority. However not all fish can be shipped priority safety, especially depending on the weather and other factors. Priority is not always guaranteed.

I hate Fedex so much, most of my car parts come Fedex. They have about a 50% rate here of actually dropping my box at my house. If it doesn't show up I have to drive down the road to a nearby house IDK with a kinda similar address and ninja my boxes off their front steps. I despise, DESPISE them ever since they left 2 cat-back exhaust systems at the other house(only like $400 worth of parts). Lucky the people who live there are never home. IDK what they would do, but I do know they pay for the pizza I ordered when it goes to there house >.> USPS and UPS NEVER do this its just a Fedex thing.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Yes, all 20 in one bag. It was a bigger size than normal but still..... I talked with them about it and they seamed to be surprised about that too.

They defiantly should not of all been in one bag! I would assume they probably had ammonia problems with that many fish in a bag, or possibly they used up all the O2.
