    I had my 1st shipment in over 300 fish go bad today....This little man was so special to me...I sold him on Aquabid last week...Shipped him out yesterday.....Had NO idea it was to a member of Fishlore....I used a 72 hour heat pack because it was a 2 day delivery into a cold area...He arrived a day early.....My little boy died in transport....

    My heart is broken.......

    It was an express mail overnight delivery Shawnie.....It got there a day early....If I had used a 40 hour heat pack he would have been fine....The 72 hour ones get very hot....I'm beating myself up pretty bad over this one let me tell you! You know I never ship priority...This happened on an overnight!

    :( I'm so sorry Karen. He sure was a pretty boy.

    My condolences also go to our member who received him.

    Rae, yes he was Wriggly's brother....

    Thank you all for the support....I really didn't want to post this message but I just need to talk about it....I do so much for my Betta kids and am so careful about shipping......This one has knocked me to my knees.....

    It's a learning experiance MM :( I never would have thought that a heat pack could be TOO hot...

    Red, they sure can......

    I had another shipment go out today.....She was in a 2 day delivery area......I had used a 72 hour heat pack.....I sent her buyer a tracking #.....After receiving the e mail of my marble boy we rushed to the PO and picked her back up! She is back home with me......I will re-ship her next Monday with a smaller heat pack......

    At least she had not left yet! Thank goodness you have her now :)

    I had 18 other fish go out yesterday with no problem.....All arrived safe and sound......I guess I should mention that.....
