Iíve got a shipment of 1200 HSB shipped from Keo at 5 today. It wasnít supposed to arrive until 11:50am tomorrow but apparently got on an earlier flight than anticipated and is now arriving at 10:50 tonight. Itís a 2 hr drive to pick them up. So Iím trying to decide if I should head up tonight and get back around 2am. Or do they handle shipping well enough I could just leave in the morning? How long do they handle being in the box?

I don't know about survival, but if I had that many $$$ fish coming I would retrieve them ASAP. Better to stock before dawn than mid morning in the summer heat. Less time in the box=better chance of survival.

If they are going into waters with existing adult predators then please habituate them.
