I wasn't exactly sure where to put this, so I figured off topic would suffice...
I wanted to set up a small, pretty tank on a nightstand, so I decided on a Fluval Ebi (which would house plants and shrimp only) All the LFS stores I've called were out of stock, so I check on-line and placed an order...I had already arranged for a shipment of shrimp to be sent three weeks later (to give time for the tank to settle)
A few days later I receive an email that the tank is on backorder and should be shipped in a month. So that order was canceled...and another placed through a different website.
Same deal, all over again.
Sooo...I'm starting to panic a bit by now. I don't want the shrimp to come with no tank for them to live in! Last chance, I place an overnight order through Amazon. This will give the tank around 1 week before it's shrimpy inhabitants arrive.
The tank arrived today. Completely shattered
I can't quite describe the level of panic there...
Luckily, customer service was wonderful and fully refunded my payment. I'm heading out tonight to pick up something, anything
for these shrimp to live in.
The fun part is that I got to keep all the accessories that came with the Fluval Ebi tank!
Score! I guess it's my reward for not killing anything in the various stages of panic!
Has anyone else ever had that sort of thing happen?
