i was just putting an option out there. better to have it up here in a clean new tank that has no other corals in it than to have it sitting on someones front steps all day.
i am sure someone would not mind the drive...

Default Update on the package

This has been the worst shipping ever. I had them search the Oakland Ca facility in case I can return all the frags in my tank. Second I tried to see If anyone can find the package in Ohio in case someone is willing to pick it up. This is what I was told since Ohio is a sorting facility they no costumer service there that can help us out. In the past this happened the package showed up around 8pm, so Jose please check your door in case. Second they will try to deliver tomorrow but really early around 8-9am thats my guess. I do appologize for the frustration I had tried all the option so lets hopefully there are signs of life tomorrow once these arrive early in the morning. In the past 70-80% survived and 2 incident all acros survived in 48 hours but that happened twice since I been doing this.
I had spoken to Pnoy that he will try to get the package If this is true Steve please email me your address. Who ever gets this please check my acclimation page on arrive alive guarantee.
Thanks,
Rommel

Default Acclimation

****Please bring a styrofoam or a cooler tomorrow****
After picking up the corals tomorrow please acclimate them slowly. You can see the acclimation procedure on my arrive alive guarantee page.
If you are not able to go home to acclimate them right away it may be a good idea to bring a water from your tank and slowly acclimate the coral to your tank water.
Once you have received your corals please email me at ultimatefrags@yahoo.com let me know the condition right away and If possible please send me picture ASAP.
Thanks,
Rommel

Well good luck to everyone with their corals. Jose, could you post in this thread as soon as they arrive? I don't want to waste anymore gas by taking another trip unnecessarily. I'll come by as soon as they're here. Thanks

just my 2 cent ,

I know everyone is upset. It really is upsetting to know your package has been delayed because of shipping error. But these corals go thru more then a 2 day shipping to get to CA. that being said , it is nice outside and not hot 71 in ny , The corals have a great chance of surviving. Keep positive , im sure everyone will help out acclimating the corals for the ones that are not able to get to jose on time. And rommel is great vendor !

Keep your head up peeps stay positive. thing have a funny way of working out

well as for me, i'm still at work and will be leaving the city at 11:30pm tonite so if they get there please call me right away jose. as for tomorrow and so on, regretfully to say, i will be going to florida on vaca on thursday and will not be coming to the city, as most of you know i have been putting together a 340 gal tank which i've already put about 100 + frags and honestly i'm with wes. i am not to happy to have these high end corals go to some other tanks then to put into mine due to minimizing the possibilty to adding pest to my tank. so i'm not sure what i will be able to do with these corals, I'm pretty sad that i can't be more flexible rommel. But i know it's truely not your fault.

Thanks man, today has been the worst one of all not by one carrier but 2 with all 5 packages and 2 GB, I almost past out when I track them this morning. I will do my best to help everyone but hope this does NOT turn everyone off. I do agree with Ronen we should be possitive and lets hope everything is well tomorrow. Since I been doing this, it happened much frequenty with the other carrier this was the first with this one. Out of many GB I had done since 2004, this is the 2nd incident.

According to their site the package is still sitting at the Ohio DHL.... I wonder if it will get here tomorrow?

I will check again in the morning. If the status remains the same, there is no sense in me missing another day of work. I work about 10 minutes from home. If I see that the status changes I'll leave work early and wait for the package.

This is an unfortunate event. I was really looking forward to receiving these corals, as I'm sure you all were. As far as me keeping corals for other I cannot accommodate any corals. I recently acquired and treated for flatworms (Red Planaria) and I'm not 100% sure that they are all gone. I'm not taking the risk with anyone's stuff. Sorry, can't do it!

-Jose-

The way i see it is, these corals are just frags. They are streesed already from cuting them, by sitting at an airport god knows where they actualy are. I dont think we stand a chance with the frags. I know this sucks for you rommel but lets be real about this , i personaly dont think its going to turn out good. And steve , i just stoped by your house last week, i am not planing on going again for a while.
