Shipping, shipping shipping!

Today(for me at least, it just hit midnight), the 26th.. My betta travels the world to reach America!! Good luck Dionysus! I hope you aren't TOO uncomfortable! You'll have to stay with the transhipper for a bit, think of it like a stop at a hotel on your way home to your nice big tank!!

Anyway, a bit nervous about that. Will be crushed if it's a DOA..but I know it happens, so I'm prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best.



Also frustrated with the shipping of my plants.. Ordered them the same day I ordered my other supplies.. Said 2-3 days, my other supplies were supposed to be 3-5 days..and they came first! Still no sign of my plants.. :( I will be NOT HAPPY if I wasted all that money on stuff that will be dead when it gets here!!

Ugh..really upset. Paypal messed up my order..

They will not confirm my new address, that's why the plants won't send. Even though my SHIPPING ADDRESS is listed... it will only send to my billing address, no matter how much I tell them I don't live there anymore! >:[

So my plants have been getting resent over and over to that old house. AWESOME.


How long can these plants live in a box for shipping? I feel like I just chunked 50 dollars down the drain.

Edit: Fedex sent it back to the planted aquariums website. I sent her an email explaining what happened. We'll see what happens

Edit: It was shipped back to her. She's going to send me new fresh plants, but I have to re-pay for shipping. @_@; hmm I mean it's worth it..Frustrating though, at least it's only a few extra bucks.. Still, this shouldn't have happened! lame. But it happened, oh well. I am still getting the occasional late birthday card with money in it, I can afford to pay for shipping again!

LOL By this point I'm concerned now my fish will get here before the plants! At least the water is well heated now and the filter we already know is working and ready!

I just got the confirmation he arrived safely! :) Woohoo! So he is at the transhippers...I paid tonight.. Can't wait til he gets home!

Poor thing, his tank is so not going to be ready for him! If only the plants had come in right.. Bah!
