The experience was not all positive. The fish did arrive as scheduled. I was just getting home with lunch when the postman left them on my front step. I quickly brought them inside and set up the video camera to record the opening. A short video follows.
A couple of other negatives: the fish were shipped in a Styrofoam box with a label that read "Refrigerated Shipment... transport contents at refrigerated temperatures of... 36-46 (degrees) F." If any attention was paid to this label, it is possible the fish were stored at a temperature wildly inappropriate for live tropical fish. I don't believe that is what happened, but that is something to be avoided. And lastly, I paid $25 for shipping, but the actual cost of shipping the fish was $16 and change. You be the judge.
