Nu, the one in my avatar is the one that 'should' be arriving tomorrow. My first AquaBid fish, and I'm just not feeling all that well knowing Canada Post is handling it =/ They practically murdered fish last weekend that were sent to a friend.

Can I ask why Canada Post? Hung sent mine fed ex. Like I said, at least it's fairly warm and even if here's a delay I'm sure your fish will be just fine. My fingers will be crossed for you! Dang, you should've just shipped it with mine!

Oh don't worry there will be pix! right now I'm acclimating them slowly. I have them in their bags, set in empty cups, and I'm dripping a little bit of my water, treated with stress coat and IAL, every 15 minutes. So I can't g good pix right now but here's a few anyway. I'll post more on the photos thread later.
Fish have arrived!

Male peaking at me. Don't worry friend, you're going to get to be in a tank soon!

Thanks, we'll see what happens! Congrats on your new fish!!! I picked up my few yesterday....which, being close to Hung's location, I can do. I too had a bad experience with Canada Post.....my shipment of 36 fish was delayed by an extra day in very cold weather. I was freaking out! Fortunately, only 3 were DOA (which was a huge surprise, I thought I'd have a box of 36 fish popsicles) and the rest were still toasty warm and perfectly fine. However, now that I've picked up 2 shipments instead of having them mailed, I can say that the sooner you get them, the better....for many reasons, but the main one is that they have less time in the little bag to bite their fins. I've noticed a big difference in fin condition with these 2 shipments that I've picked up compared to the 2 previous shipments that I got via Canada Post. Of course, those of you in Alberta don't have that option, but I would certainly recommend making the extra effort to pick your fish up if you live in Ontario.

Good point about fin biting. I got 9 females and one PK male, so all short fins. But when I get that blue/yellow fella (haha) I'll make sure I use fed ex again. Sorry you've had such biting issues but you're lucky you live close to our transhipper!

Those look like beauties Percy!

So it'd be a good idea to treat his tank with StressCoat too, huh? I already have his 10g soaking with 3 IALs. I srsly don't want to shock this guy if he makes it to me.
