    Cholla wood from E-bay

    Hi, I have a bloody mary and TT shrimp tank with a good amount of moss that with my dragon stones is covering my substate almost completely... I want thinking of buying a Y cholla wood from e-bay they are in New Mexico and I guess gather it from there. they only wash it , what do I have to do before I put it in my tank , is soaking it for a week enough to make sure there is no nasties on it ? tks

    Heat killed my bloody marys

    Hi all, my 2 packages arrived today all alive ! The hold for pickup was great about 12 alive and the other one with the PO saying cant do Hold for pickup was great also , this package came at 2 PM instead of 6 PM and it was overcast today and about 92 degrees so the weather helped a lot and he did wall insulation with the 1/2 inch styro so that helped . Im a happy shrimper!

    Heat killed my bloody marys

    Hi, so I have 2 sellers Im buying bloody marys from, the first had no problem doing Hold for pickup,at the PO, the second one was told Hold for pickup was not an option when he went to ship the box. So some PO don't give that option ? The only plus is the next few days are cooler than last week we ll see whar happens ..

    Heat killed my bloody marys

    Hi, I had Bloody mary shrimp shipped priority, it came in only 2 days so great , the problem was it was on a post office truck until 6 PM, I was checking all PM for it so I got it inside and all dead. The water was HOT so being on the PO truck all day did them in. Do you think next time that Hold for pickup at the PO would work, I have done it in the past with good results but its 100 ++ here with humidity here in Tucson AZ, tks..
