No its not, but I am thinking they are dealing with something as I have been on hold for more then 20 minutes now. I think the internet is tired with all of us being on it all the time now!! 🤔

My brother works for an ISP, and he told me to expect throttling for nonessential web traffic. Supposedly Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. were first on the list by telling them to only stream SD video.

We are Essential!! How else are people going to get nice clean, healthy fish?!?! 🐟 :unsure:

Of course I am kidding but I think you are right, I am still on hold thinking this may take a while.
If they take forever let me know and I’ll see if I can take a look. Been running web properties for a couple decades and might be able to lend a hand. Feel free to DM or get my # from @Humblefish

I think its on the Hosts side, I dont think it is the website itself. I am still on hold so clearly they have something going on their end.

Hey @Bruce , We can see if we can do that... I assume it would be pretty expensive but have no issue doing it if they offer an overnight situation.

Ok thanks I know that TSM Aquatics was working on getting a certain permit to allow them to ship fish to any airport in the world and then people and not just local fish stores can pick them up I'm hoping, if all goes well to start stocking fish in 4-6 months I'm stuck waiting to get the floor tildherethe tank is going

Is TSM a reputable quarantine vendor? They have an emperor angel I want but don't know anything about their practices. Just curious if you or anyone else has used them?

I don’t know about TSM. As far as vendors go my criteria is, if I’m paying for QT:
*I want to read their entire QT & observation process
*See a recommendation by a trusted source that know correct QT protocols

For me personally I prefer to order from HF QT vendors only for the above reasons. I bought “QT’d” fish years ago - that turned out to have several diseases. When I called, I discovered he had tanks QT & incoming stock next to each other (cross contamination).He keeps losing fish in his display to this day.

I'll also add that back when I stocked my tank using Humblefish Aquatics, I drop shipped a few hard to find fish to Bobby.

I sourced 2 from nice guy who did list his QT practices (2 jawfish).
I still drop shipped these to Bobby. As soon as Bobby got them he found both had flukes . The guy only gave them 1 round of Prazi. He thought that was all that was needed.

Point is vendors can have good intentions. But unless they do things the right way, their lack of knowledge puts you right back @ square one.

Bobby has researched these HF vendors, so I like the extra reassurance that provides.
