RAOK - A Thank You

Came home today to find an unexpected box waiting for me.

Opened the box to a small note inside. "Here's a couple guys to get you started again. Thanks for all you are doing with the Otos and Shrimp." Signed.....Annonymous Fish Fan.

No name or ID mentioned. My address was used as the return address. No other type of identifying comments.

Inside the box was (2) male Otocinclus Cocama's.

So...To whoever you are......

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

You must have bought something from them before if they have your adress. Awesome though! Good thing you saw the box

It's a mystery alright. It's odd that it arrived at the same time as the other box.

why would you open a mystery box from an unknown person especially if the return address was yours?

Because it's not like someone can put anthrax or anything in a box; only in a envelopes, right?


Or, maybe they are business competitors of yours, and have sent you heavily diseased fish in order to wipe out your stock so that they can take over; little do they know you use a 48 hr quarantine (right?) LOL

I think we're over analyzing this. LOL

lol...I didn't initially look at the return address. It wasn't until after I opened the box, read the note and then found the contents.

This was my thinking. Someone who I either bought from or got something from me.
