SWilkins is sending me some fish and I should be getting them tomorrow. The 120 got a big ole waterchange, cleaned the filter, moved stuff around and got a good scrub down. I'm super excited about getting them. My camera is charged and ready. I hope they arrive safe and sound!!.

Well I don't know if Sherry wants me to let the cat out of the bag..lol..I'd hate to spoil a surprise.. But you'll know soon hopefully....I just checked hesr and they are in her town on the delivery truck..Sooo that's good news!!!..She did hers electronically and I'm wondering if maybe that's why the fish coming to me haven't been updated..But if they don't come in the mail I'm calling the post office to see if I can go hunt them down and pick them up.

Yeah I always pay extra but I guess you can't actually get tracking unless it's express mail. the only thing you can get on priority is delivery confirmation which on all the ones I've sent out they update the day they get them..lol...at least I know they are in the town and being delivered though.

They are here and acclimating right now. They are a bit faded after their trip but I think we expected that. Thanx Cesch for the gorgeous Blood Red Jewels!!!!

I'm SOOOO glad you have them!!!. I did know they would be faded..When I got them shipped to me they were grey!!. I was kinda worried but they color up REALLY fast. I'm just so glad they made it safe and sound.

Oh they are not gray that is for sure. They were pinkish-orangy but I see some bright color coming in now....boy that was fast!!! They were pretty to begin with but man they are getting prettier by the minute. WOW talk about bright color you really have to see these fish in person....pics do not do the justice. I will get pics once they have settled in...I'm not stressing them anymore if at all possible.

Mine did not get here today. . Well they didn't come with my mail and they usually do so I'm thinking I will get them tomorrow. The good news is the weather is great here so I'm just hoping and praying they will be fine!!!. I called the Post Office and asked If I could go pick them up wherever they were and she said it would be impossible to find them and I just needed to wait. . Sooo here I am waiting..What a stressful day and night and morning it will be. But I'm keeping my hopes high!!. Very weird she got hers though..It's the same distance..lol..Like Sherry said that's USPS for ya.
