My first Betta is lost in the mail :(

Well after getting my tank all set up and being all excited I ordered my first betta (since I was a teen) on Monday. He shipped Tuesday from NY. I was told to expect him on Weds here in PA. Well yesterday no fish, so I emailed the seller who was sceptical he would arrive in decent shape because of the temperatures, but not to worry as no matter what he would make it right. So waited nervously all day, and STILL NO BETTA

The tracking info still says in NY as of yesterday around lunchtime. I hope he comes tomorrow and is ok. I am very upset since this was one my son picked out to be his first fish. I would have been sad if it were for me, but it is even worse since it was for him.

Is there any slim chance he will be ok if he comes tomorrow?

Thanks for the ray of hope! The seller said yesterday that he will "make it right". His sales policy states that he has a live arrival guarantee, I believe I would just have to pay $15 for shipping (if he doesn't decide to waive it). It says he will replace with equal or greater quality. I just really hope he is ok and it doesn't come to that since my son picked him out

Oh I understand not a good site to see when your kid is all excited, but the betta will be fine! You'll see!

Sometimes tracking info is not updated regularly. I'm sure he'll be there Friday, and I Pray all will be well!!!

Thanks guys! I am just worried because it is so cold. The seller said worst case he will send me his brother as a replacement that he had not listed yet who looks a lot like him, but I am really hoping my guy will be ok!

I am so sorry. This would make me pretty anxious. Fingers crossed your fella makes it there in good shape.
