UPS had my stress level peaked.

Ordered 8 OV Corys on a Sunday 11/19/23 and received on Wednesday the 22nd. I did have a slight issue with the UPS delivery person deciding not to deliver them, and rescheduling for a Friday delivery because Thursday was Thanksgiving.
So the poor little guys sat in the truck all day with it being 44F outside and where destined to sit in the UPS warehouse over turkey day. Well luckily I kept an eye out and after watching the UPS driver drive by my place and not stop at 5pm, I started watching the UPS website. A half hour after they drove by, the arrival time switched from "By 9pm" to Friday.
So I headed to the UPS Hub to get my Corys. They got there 15 minutes after I showed up at 6:15pm. They did not notice the live animal sticker on the package until they unloaded the truck. UPS apologized and said the driver felt awful.
The box was cold and I was worried. Got home, opened it up to find all 8 alive and kicking. The heat pack was still slightly warm and the bag was cold so I checked the temp and it was 64F. Did a drip acclimation and then into a quarantine tank.
Today is Wed. the 29th and when I got home and checked, 1 had passed away. Not sure why, the other 7 are doing great. All my water levels are spot on. Being in the hobby for 2 decades I know that it happens. This will not discourage me in anyway from buying from FlipAquatics again. This was my first time buying online and will do it again.

Happy fish

Fish arrived happy and healthy. They are doing great in their new home. Had no trouble adjusting. Very cute and energetic. Looking forward to seeing them grow up. Thank you for the excellent service. Keep up the good work. Will be ordering again in the future.

Like a pack of puppies!

They are so cute and exactly as pictured! I never realized how active and playful Cory cats are. Love them!

Ordered 5 and received 6 healthy, super cool OV Corys. Have had them about a week now and all are still alive and thriving. They really add a lot of character to my community tank.
