Why are you buying PhosGuard? Just curious.
Because the phosphates in my 10 and 29 were sky high and it was irritating me.
Long store short, the Seachem pH Regulator I used for a long time leeched into the sponges and such in my filters, so when I did water changes, filter cleanings, ect... the levels never came down like they should.
It remains a mystery how long it will take to get phosphate levels down to a tolerable level as I started using the Phoguard yesterday afternoon. This morning phosphate levels are coming down, but the real test will be when I remove the Phosguard entirely. Will levels increase again, or will it be gone?
If I had extra, cycled filter media around, I'd just swap it out, but I don't so getting that crap out of my tanks is going to take awhile.
I don't have this problem in the 5.5 gallon because I never used pH Regulator in that. I started the tank with crushed coral, so phosphate levels behave like they should when water changes are done, when I dose, ect...
If Amazon lets me work from home then I would sell my car and say goodbye to humanity as I would no longer have any reason to leave the house.
Generally, Prime 2-day shipping applies to BUSINESS days: M-F, not Saturday or Sunday. Of course, there are exceptions depending on a whole lot of logistics. I've come to love Saturday deliveries, even though it's not included in the Prime membership. Thank you USPS for tolerating your annual loss so that I can enjoy my Lifesaver candies on Saturday instead of having to wait until Monday like an unpriviledged 3rd-world child. I've never gotten a single Sunday delivery even though the status shows as "Out for Delivery" only to end with some kind of problem by the end of the day. Hmmph! You'd think I live out in the boonies somewhere instead of smack dab in the middle of a major metropolis, complete with acid rain and air that'll kill you. But hey: Sunday delivery is a priviledge, not a right. If a delivery is not made within 2 business days however, then you can file a complaint and get an extension on your Prime membership.
Anywhooooooo, back to your scenario. You placed an order on Saturday and got 3 products promised for Monday delivery: WOOO HOOOOO!!! Because technically, you shouldn't get them until Wednesday: (1) orders placed on the weekends are seen as being placed on Monday and (2) with 2-day Prime means they'll get delivered by Wednesday.
I've checked all 4 of your items and none were qualified for special free One-Day-Delivery (not that this makes sense since I don't live in your state)...so the fact that you got them for Monday is a testament to the power of Amazon's shipping logistics and why it strikes fear in all its competitors. Eww!
...unless there's something else that I've missed. Then, sorry.
You lost me at the acid rain.
The post office here delivers on Saturdays. They deliver Amazon orders, express mail, ect... on Sundays. I'm fine with the Monday delivery date, I'm not okay with the 4 day delivery date of the Phoguard. I don't need it at the moment, however, that is not the point. I paid to be a Prime member and expect Amazon to deliver as promised.
Ironically, this kind of thing only happens when I order fish stuff. They didn't seem to have a hard time shipping out the VitaMix I ordered not all that long ago.
