i'm so annoyed because i decided to buy some IAL from etsy. they were cheap and i had enough so i went for it. anyway i bought those on Febuary 8th. it is now March 1st and i still haven't gotten them. the tracking number also stops working apparently as soon as the package enters the U.S. it entered in New York on Feb 15th. i live in NC and it does not take another 2 weeks to get from NY to NC. so like, where is my package?? i'm going to get a refund if it takes much longer. i already bought and was shipped several other things for my new setup in the time i've been waiting for my IAL (including my filters, my pump, and my stand).
on the bright side my pump arrived today + in that package also arrived some crinkly catnip toys i ordered. my cats are having a blast nibbling on them.
If they are treated the same a live plants they could have been confiscated. For those who may not know, it's illegal to import live plants and Customs will confiscate them. On other forums people have posted that Customs actually paid them a call and they were fined.
