well i got him, i dont think he did too well during shipping, we was floating at the top of the bag, but i acclimated him anyway and he is in a net breeder now, i will let u know if he pulls through, here is a pic
yea its real hott, like 100+ i think the low last night was in the high 80's, the water temp when i opened the bag was 84, so i think a cold pack may be needed but im not sure. but i am also not sure of the temp of the the plane which fedex ships it through but the heat pack was still warm when i opened the box
por little thing. I had no idea that righty shipped octopus to hobbyists i am setting up a 200 gallon aqarium so maby cuttles are in the question. by the way when is the cuttlefish care section going to be finished on your web page?
I am experimenting with shipping. I hate doing it for reasons that appear in this thread .
I wrote a lengthy article that will be published soon for an online magazine - and then also hosted on TONMO. Once it goes up, it will go on my site too, along with updates and additions.
I don't have many babies left, but hope to have eggs in 4-6 months.
yea, i used to deal with anglers alot, and they were horrible shippers. the major proublem with shiping i think is the temp change, and the basic trauma of the package being jostled, but then again i have had some miricles as well. A hawian leaf fish was lost in the mail, and i didnt recieve it until 2 1/2 days after it was shiped, and it was fine.
