curious how they packed them so that they could stay alive in a box? I understand their gills need to stay wet to survive out of water?
What was the transit time and from what location?

Place was in Ohio and I'm in Central Illinois. They mailed Monday and I received Thursday morning. Interior of box was cool, not warm at all. They seemed to have packaged them on sopping wet sphagnum moss, 12 to a plastic container about the size of about 24oz cottage cheese container but made of hard plastic like a solo cup. Holes punched in the top and taped to keep closed. The containers were set inside a cardboard box and containers were packed in with damp newspaper that may have been frozen when first packed. Box was a bit damp but held up well. Craws were frisky for the most part with a few casualties but less than one would expect for the journey they had. $60 Shipped for 120 craws. I bought them last year for my bigger pond with about the same results, would buy again.

Dumbfounded frown Went looking for my ECHO Polesaw and it has come up missing. I worked on it a while back thought I put it away and now I am not sure if someone needed it more than me or I just misplaced it. I had two young men out to the pond and worked to remove some of the Willows that are so invasive at the pond. Wound up using one of the chain saws along with some roundup 365 to dab on the top of the willow cut. We also replaced a couple of the metal 55 gal drums used for floating my pier and replaced them with plastic drums. We used the front end loader and some straps/chains to pick up one end of the pier and slipped out the drums that needed to be replaced. The water was cooler than I expected after it had been in the mid 80's just a few weeks back. Now I am thinking I might be ok to start up a little fishing in a couple weeks. Still have a lot more Willows to be removed. I also increased my feeding time by 2 seconds on two of the three TH feeders. Bg were very active along with seeing several lmb in the 3lb range moving around and in with the bg. It was a long day at the pond.
