ThomE - It was overnight. But I believe I opted for next afternoon, vs. next morning. And to make matters worse for the shrimp, FedEx got confused over the address, so I had to go down to their facility to pick them up around 6 PM because the truck couldn't find my house! And it was COLD that day.
So all things considered, the hand full of DOA's seemed pretty reasonable. I don't fault them for that. And they did separate the shipment into two bags. That's why I could count them - the group was broken up into to sets. That many shrimp would have been really tough to count if they were all in one bag.
But you might ask them what the shipping is going to be. Once again, I got some big, heavy bags of water (ka CHING! $), so that many shrimp could cost more to ship overnite, then the actual cost of the shrimp.
Steve - 33g reef and a 180g planted in need of a re-scape.
