Question Breeder to Transhipper time???

Ok. So I'm getting a bit anxious here... I WANT ME FISH!!!!
How long for the transhipper to get their shipment after the breeder sends it?
My transhipper is not answering my emails and I don't want to be a pest.

I think the shipping is over night by air cargo. The transhipper should be able to tell you when the shipment should be coming in.

Who are you using?

I received the email the breeder sent my transhipper Linda on 8/1 when he shipped the fish.
I think I'm just being very inpatient. Tanks are ready and cycle, now just need fish.
Guess I should wait until tomorrow afternoon before I email again.
I hope I can get them before the end of the week.

Hmm.. he should have arrived by now I would think and I would hope that she would send an email letting you know he'd arrived. I don't know though.

I hoped so too. Who knows? Maybe they're on their way to me. She had all my information after all.

Could be.. I would think she would notify you of when they were coming.

Heya, I actually just got done using Linda as something happened in Thailand as they were late and couldn't get it to my first choice, Jennifer. Don't worry you will get your fish- Linda is very bad with communication. She said she would e-mail me but I never heard from her... she didn't ship out the day she said she was going to, but then a day after I was supposed to get the fish I got a random tracking number saying she had shipped my fish. So don't worry, she'll get around to it. I wouldn't be afraid to e-mail either since you haven't heard from her. I recommend using Jennifer as she has fantasic prices, great communication, and is super nice :) (not saying Linda wasn't nice, there is just bad communication)

Some times it take's 2 day's for the fish to go from the breeder to the trans shipper. Then if it's a good trans shipper like mine, He take's the fish and put's them in there own gallon container's. Fresh water and relax, he give's them a meal then wait's 2 day's so he has had the fish a total of 3 day he only gave it a meal on the first because it didnt get a meal for 3 day before getting shipped from breeder. So he give them fresh water a meal and relax for 3 days then he pack's them all up real nice and send's them my way.
It would suck to throw a fish around the world in a little bag, and then drop him into a new bag with fresh air a send him on another ride. Yes I want my fish like right now, but I am wanting a happy stress free fish as much as I can..

Well I emailed Linda last night again but ended up calling a minute ago. She said she'll FedEx my fish today!!
Woop!! I was just starting to get nervous as it is my first time.
