If you're within the greater Bay Area, it's usually overnight with Priority. Sac, like sbarbee said is still 2 days.

I've heard of some people getting their shrimp stolen many times. lol Crazy right?

I was at my LFS and someone tried walking out with a Big piece of Live WET coral. They scooped it out of the tank and into her purse. They were watching water drip out of her bag. They stopped her and called the police. CORAL!
PS How would you steal shrimp? I assume you don't let people scoop their own? The tank is a little heavy to walk out the door?

Low morality coupled with desperation spawns folks like that. They'll go above and beyond sometimes. All we can do is take preventative measures to avoid those folks.

The thing with Priority is that there is no "guarantee" that they package will get there within 2 days. Normally they do, but if for some unforseen reason it doesn't, USPS will not guarantee anything other than it'll get there eventually. With Express you have the option of getting insurance (which is pretty cheap) and also a money back guarantee if they don't meet their promised delivery time.

For high value shrimp orders, I'd prefer using Express just for peoples piece of mind.

Just came home from lunch and my oldest adult shadow panda I took in from a local keeper passed due to age I thing. She was starting to not move as much and color was fading a bit. I had her for
8 months and the other guy for over a year. Sad as she was huge but 3 weeks ago she dropped a full clutch of 29 or so tb so I have plenty of replacements

That's an awesome shrimp, Gulf

My funds look really bleak right now and I don't have gas, so I might have to go with another bag of Turface or Safe T-Sorb instead of Amazonia. Seeing as the CRS are doing well in the 20L right now, I think it's the cheapest option I have at the moment.

mjbn - just save up and buy. You can always order and they'll ship it too.
