Aquatic shipping

Hi guys, quick question:

If I ordered plants tonight and they are being shipped overnight, when do they get here? I'm thinking Saturday?

It depends on the shipping service. Some don't deliver on Saturdays unless you pay extra for it. I'd wait to order until the beginning of the week personally.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

They'd probably wait to mail it on Monday for Tuesday arrival. That's my guess.

Re-boot!

If they are being sent Express Mail then they will be delivered on Saturday and Sunday for no charge. If you ordered them late in the evening they will not be shipped till today, Friday. Depending on the delivery method, you can expect to see the plants either Saturday or Tuesday.

From Aquarium plants.com - that's where I ordered it last night right before I posted here, and I picked overnight USPS - the $21 shipping option, I think.

So hopefully, it will be here tomorrow?

It depends on what time they bring it to the post ofice. There is a cut off time for next day delivery that varies depending on where it is going. It also depends on where it is going. More remote areas are two days for express mail
