Hopefully your fish will arrive safe and sound soon.
Ya, I was told they can last beyond 15 days like that, but only if the temperature is kept at a good level ("not too hot, not too cold"). I have a feeling you are not the only person this has happened too, and probably the reason for them halting shipments until storms/freezing weather has passed! The email about the delays were sent to all aquabid sellers in Thailand (I received the forward from the seller) so this has to be weather based.
I just received an email from another seller about the delay and I asked them how the fish are. Apparently they were sent back to them so they are being taken care of. I am pretty confused, and the language barrier doesn't help matters, heh!
In any case, I hope you are able to heal well from this trauma and enjoy you new fish! I hope he arrives alright....he sure is a beauty!
I am going to try and get some sleep now, though, I really can't imagine sleeping at this point. I get stressed out pretty easy, ack!
