Well I got my new octo from tom today. Decided to have them hold it at a fedex location instead of letting the truck delivering it. By doing that i shortened the travel time by 6 hours. Shipping was much better this time. Was shipped in a box with styrofoam and 2 heat packs. Upon opening things up i found an octopus that had not inked in the bag and that was reacting to me. Overall things are looking better than the first time and I am continuing to acclimate as i type. Still being cautious and keeping my but i feel better about this one.
