  • Coldest water temp you have ever had frags arrive at???

    I just got 5 gorgeous frags in about 20 min ago.. I knew they were cold because the bags were freezing.. I droped the themometer in the bag and they are 52 degrees.. They still have some color but damn what do you fellow zeoheads think?

    I got some that the water temp was @ 60 deg. One of them lived after some tissue recession, one was dead in the bag.

      All the ones I got still have color and flesh so I am hoping things will be ok.. A nice tenious and a bottlebrush were 2 of them... I will get some pics of the 5 I got today in a few and put the links on here..

          Damn I am feeling good then mine had color still and full of flesh. Sculpin, when you recieved them were they bleached out or still showing color and flesh?

            Jeff you might want to drip acclamate them to the temp in you tank for a long time maybe 4-6 hrs

                Figured that good luck. Just think if they survive this they will be bulletproof

                    I got some at 62 degrees, 3 milli frags one slimer. I drip acclimated for about 2 hours removeing water to keep the Ph in check and they all seem to be doing good now. I had one of my Milli's start tp RTN on me but I snaped him and that has been the end of that. Lucky me.

                      jeff you should be fine my trans-shipments arrive in Indy at 50-70 degrees, If packed well like mine are, I have lost a total of 4 out of well over 2,000 corals sent to me. Keep in touch, they are coming from Chicago arent they? what time did he box them up and take them to fedex?

                            I remember a shipment from Tonga which arrived over here with 32 degrees F. Only one table acropora has survived the mistake by the airline and is still alive.
