Sorry to here that Holy, hopefully the next 4 don't take as long. I haven't seen one of my bkk in a couple days. So I am assuming he's gone. Haven't found any dead shrimp, but he was usually close to the glass. O well 

I know this doesn't help much but I live on the East Cost so I try to buy from this area, and it sticks watch a lot of good stuff selling in Califonia but I let it go. Even buying from NY & NJ it takes 2 and 3 days to get to Maryland unless you spend $45 on shipping.

I would be screaming for a refund. I would demand the difference between express and snail.

I know of one supplier that is not using Express right now because of the problems with the time it takes them to deliver.

Well the 15 has been torn down!

It bowed an inch from front to back, and the front & left panels separated from each other by a couple millimeters for an inch from the top of the tank. Considering I have over $1k invested here in shrimp, and it sits not a foot from my brand new gaming pc, I couldnt risk it. I'm going to see if the maker can fix it, or if I can myself..

In the meantime, I got a 20long with stand and light for about $100 yesterday and transferred everything but the substrate over.. Talk about a waste of powersand I just went with 100% Tahitian moon black sand, brand new this time and not used/rinsed like I did before. I think that was the initial problem with ammonia and the disease, used substrate :/ so yeah should be fine now..

I will be getting moss tiles for a carpet, and debating on some anubias or something for some added foliage. My goal here though is shrimps not plants so I'm not fertilizing or anything.

Suggestions welcome ^^

Here's a quick Shot and an entertaining(albeit poor quality)video of a golden trying to jump the divider :p

And yes I still have to fill it :P That will happen today and i'll grab some better pics of the setup.

My last only 'cherry' I selectively bred her from regular cherries, pretty sure this would be considered 'Painted Fire Red'.. And she's berried again! (you can kinda make out the bkk on the sponge in back)


And some CRS that wanted to get in line for me ^^

LMAO ! Basically haha :p

And ya priority usually comes quick for me, it was only 2 days travel for the TT's. I've been assured this next express shipment will arrive promptly so I'm crossing my fingers this time
