Keep his money and see if he messages you then.

If anything, those crays deserve a medal, or some new digs if you catch my drift.

Ive had a package destined from norcal to socal(should be 1 day shipping) and somehow it got misrouted to mississippi, then denver, then back to CA 9 days later it was delivered. Since i figured it was a lost cause i reshipped another pack of shrimp to the lady. She got those in a day and then almost a week later the second package showed up on her doorstep also lol. She got a killer deal on buy one get one free blue pearls thanks to the ding ding mail. But all shrimp were alive and well. This thread is the exact reason why i think its silly that people ship express or overnight only. The only reason i would ship overnight would be for some ebiten or some really really expensive fish/inverts/corals

They are in a crayfish paradise as far as they're concerned. They are in there high giving their brothers and sisters telling them about their great adventure, haha.

You wouldn't happen to have the blue or white versions of the CPO would you?

Pretty sure he's thinking of regular crays.

Wow that is a crazy long time for something live to be in the mail! What did you ship them in out of curiosity, breather bags? What ever you used sure works great!

My standard shipping box and breather bags with air space.

Crays do best with very little water, so there was about an ounce of water, a golf ball of moss, and a cray in each bag.

Yeah, I don't know the species, but they look very similar.

Even for CPOs? I always thought they must be kept 100% underwater. I know regular river crays may go on land a bit, but mostly they are fully underwater.

They can be kept underwater, I'm only talking about when shipping them.

They do better in shipping if they have mostly air
