delivery crisis


New member
ok, so i got a problem. I ordered a cleaner shrimp, some hermit crab, and a wheeler's goby from live aquaria and they are supposed to be delivered at ten thirty today. the problem is my parents just called and there is a family emergency i have to attend and i have to leave at 9:00 am TODAY and it is probably going to take at least 7 hours. So my question is can i leave them at the fedex store and pick them up later, and will they survive in the box for another few hours please reply thanks

Ive had them delayed an extra day and they were ok. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Take care of the family and then worry about the shrimp.

You should be fine. Most shippers put in plenty of oxygen for an extra day of shipping and you are just talkingabout a few extra hours.
