They got here just before I had to leave for work and I just had time to get them in a bucket with Prime and an airstone.. They'll probably stay in it overnight since the bags they were in were 67 degrees and l stupidly had the heater in their tank set at what the other tanks are (74) instead of room temperature. :doh11:   

Anyway, here they are:

Warning: I swear a little. ;)

So cute! It must be so exciting/nerve wrecking opening those boxes

It was really hard not to squeal! :lol2

What made me nervous was when Marlon (cute UPS guy) handed me the box and said "I hope they are ok" and cringed a little. :yikes

They are friggin' cute, even if I can only see them from the top. :teehee

ahhh I'm so jelly Alida!!! :heart :heart

Only $20 shipping Mikey! :whistle

They do look awesome! More pics!!!!

How long did it take you to get them? After watch Chelsea open her fish I noticed your bags didn't have much air in them....though yours look just fine and happy!

UPS 1 day, ECR is located in NJ. That's why shipping wasn't outrageous. ;)

Cindy uses Kordon Breather Bags. They're awesome! Weird not floating them in water though. ;)

Yep, if you use Kordon Breathers you don't need to add oxygen like Ken does. Cynthia probably saves a lot on shipping materials that way because she doesn't need as big of boxes to ship the ranchus.

I always thought the same thing, but between gas and having to take off work, $20 is actually cheaper! :o

And especially now that Cindy doesn't allow anyone into her 'fish rooms'.... :no:

~~~~~~~~~~~~

They made it through the night ok in the bucket! :nana The temp in the bucket and the tank are still too far apart, but I have off today :nana So I can check up on them all day. :nana

Your new babies are so cute... Seeing the opening of a box of mailed fish was fascinating for me!  We cant get them here because the courier takes longer than 48hours to deliver :-(

 

Im so pleased you are enjoying your babies.... can we see more pics of them?
