Hopefully it comes around. I wish they didn’t use cold packs. The packages are in transit in the late afternoon and overnight for the most part when temps are pretty mild. Then they are delivered (unless there is a shipping problem) before the heat of the next day comes on. I haven’t shipped as much as LA obviously but I’ve sent at least a couple hundred live animal packages and have never had an issue with anything overheating during shipping.Back to ORA T. gigas from LA. this is the two Gigas I got from LA. The first was great perfect right away. The second was cold on arrival due to cold pack. He is better, but not in great shape. He is still discharge Zooxanthellea. This is difficult to see in the picture, but it is the dark line out from the efferent opening. Mantel was retracted a little but now have spread to and over the shell this AM. I snapped this picture with my cell phone right before I went to work this AM.
Hope he continue to improve,
My gigas is in a pretty good amount of flow. It turned itself so the flow was over it lengthwise and seems to be loving it now. The mantle extended fully after about 5 days.Mine arrived last saturday. Two Gigas and one big fat Squamosa. My Fedex guy has seen my tank and the minute he loads his truck and see's a box labeled "Live Animals" for me, he makes a bee line for my house and I meet him at the curb. Super good guy!. All seem to be doing well. The two Gigas attached quickly. They seem so tiny and fragile especially compared to weight and thickness of the Squamosa. I had to turn down the flow from the Gyres. The Gigas like it pretty calm so i am looking for a place in the tank for them to grow out with minimal disturbance. At first I thought my Squamosa was showing early signs of pinched mantle until i turned the front set of Gyres down and then he let it all hang out. I am changing over to ATI Essentials Pro today. Super excited about this change and can't wait to see the effects.
