I would think that her main priority would be to keep the fish moving and get them on their way as quickly as possible.
Obviously every client is concerned for their fish and wants that as well. But by stopping to answer every email only to reassure the client, that process will be impeded. If she has a good reputation, I would not worry.

Thank you. I'm feeling guilty about posting my concerns about how a transshipper *might* be just based on how intimidated I felt by the language on her instructions page. I could have kept that to myself and waited to see how it turns out. I don't want to besmirch anyone's reputation based on "the cover of their book," so to speak. I'll find out what's she's like shortly, because the breeder shipped my fish. I'll certainly post if it all turns out fine, which it probably will. If it doesn't, I'll take it up with the transshipper rather than post about it on a forum.

$260!?!!! that's crazy! You should make friends with someone in the US and have them ship it to you in Australia, it might be cheaper?

Been nursing my boy back to health... Fin rot. Everything's been going well until yesterday he decided to sleep up against the intake grate. Uggh, he ripped all of the progress we made. Introducing my intake modification. Let me know if you are interested and I'll divulge. What do you think?

Here is an updated pic of mine...still not sure I am totally happy with it. I am thinking of replacing the Java Fern with Bacopa Carolina, and the Banana Plant with a Dwarf Water Lily. I also need to trim the water sprit! That thing grows like 2" a day!
