Well my new guy (pictured in avatar) is currently on a plane headed to the US. I hate flying and just the thought of my fish being on one makes my stomach do flips . I'm having him shipped priority from Jennifer (Hopdiggity). I think she only ships priority on Monday and Tuesday so I'll have to wait a whole week to get my guy. This is tourture!!!
I think I waited like 4 days for the one I bought from Jennifer, and spent the entire time driving my bf crazy, can't imagine having to wait a week, think it's better that I try to resist ever buying one from thailand, lol
I only live 4 1/2 hours from Jennifer and it still took two days to get my CT Artoo. I think she only ships monday and tuesday for priority cuz she doesn't want to risk the fish getting stuck at the post office over the weekend. If she shipped him on Wed I should get him on Fri but I don't think I want to risk it.
Well he made it safe and sound to the US. I decided to go ahead and do express shipping. It was a lot of money but when I thought about the benifits I decided it was a better option. He will be here on Friday, Yea!
After losing the bid on the one fish I wanted from aquabid, I decided I'd rather just go into petco every few days and check their fish out than to have to pay enormous amounts for shipping a fish to me and putting them through the travel risks. :/
I wish your little guy much luck in getting to you fast and safe!
Yay!! I know, I HATE shipping them, but the two I've ordered so far have been the most gorgeous fish I've ever seen! :) It's worth it if they don't die...I haven't had a DOA, but I'm sure it would break my heart!
