Alas, for whatever reason he didnt fare well through the night. The water parameters were all good and I removed the uneaten shrimp. He did well for the first twelve hours but then when we got up this morning we found him, obviously dead. He must have been too stressed from the shipping....We will have to be more careful about how we get the next one, If we can find one again. He was a braireus. :frown:

So sorry to hear...Sometimes they just can't handle the stress of shipping and such. Hope you will try again. Over the years I too have had babies that just didn't make it past that 24-48 hour period.
