plants shipment arrived!
 
ok so yesterday, my shipment arrived. i had been gone for 4days in florida and i dont know at what time in those days it got here. but when i got home it was on the front door and soaked. i open it in the sink, and to my surprise they are all in perfect condition. infact, they are in better condition then i expected before i went to florida. i ordered them the 16 expecting them to come before christmass so they wouldnt be shipped when im gone but they didnt so i emailed them asking them if they could hold it back so they wouldnt freeze. but they didnt email back, bad customer service. anyways, i had to fill the tank up a quarter of the way so the plants were submerged and they look great. i will post pics later i promise. im hoping all of them survive because i really like them.

:thumbsup: that is some very nice plant choices there...can't WAIT to see pic's

FYI the tiger lotus often does NOT like shipping, so its leaf's may look some pale and super paper thin. But it'll quickly grow back out with new leaf's once planted ;-)

Those would of froze in a heartbeat where I am. You got some good plants though. Was -19 here this morning and I was upset that work didn't call me off:-(.

lol, yea, either really goood packing or just pure luck. they wouldve froze here also. it was around 28 F. the main reason i bought pennywort is because in some tanks i get a SLOW but steady growth of algea, and after switching light, temp, ferts, and more stuff, i decided that its just the water that does it. its not bad, its like after a week or so it becomes barely visible. its just a little brown algea on the glass. not a big deal.
