I received my Christmas gift 3 days ago. Was looking at my PRL tank and saw 3 tiny red dots! Took me half hour to realize that there is a mama still with 2-3 eggs in her belly. Her shell has a pretty soild white so I never known she was berried! Surprise!

Ebichua, was there no plant or sponge or something for the shrimp to hang onto in the bag? It did not look like it in your picture. I wonder if that was the reason they died. Seems hard to believe someone would charge that much money for shrimp and overlook something this simple. I hardly ever pay for express mail for shrimp. I ordered and shipped plenty of times and shrimp have no problems surviving 3 or more days in a Kordon breather bag which was what yours came in, so they should have been fine unless the temperature was an issue.
But I won't order or ship until March myself, unless it involves only my neighboring states. So my X-mas present to me will have to wait until spring.
If you look closely, you see that there is a small piece of filter floss in the bag. Some shippers prefer to use inorganic materials for shipping to prevent ammonia spikes. Looks like a temperature issue here.
