    No, not at all. Just disappointed because we (the PE team) have waited so long for it - and then not to receive it. Oh well. I guess I should order elsewhere perhaps. It was my first time to order from them.

    Ok I'll be honest here and jokes a side for a min.
    I gotta defend petstop and his team a bit.
    I was there to get fishes, like I do always.
    There was 1 from last week, I couldn't take it
    While I was picking up some plants. Why?
    He/she was on meds.
    Today, still can't take him/her. Why? Cod still
    On meds. I must say. They are very helpful, at least
    Using meds to give us clients a better and quality fish.
    I said all my fish were meds so it should be safe as I am
    Using metrobindaloe. But they still insisted I wait.
    Not much other stalls will go this far for clients.

    But let me make you a deal, seeming you want this Otto
    So badly., I'll let you have this one.
    I'll ask moolis to ship it to you at ur expense?
    He knows I can pop in anytime and get the fishes

    So if moolis is reading this, please help Pauline out :)

    @BBQ thank you for the kind offer - it is hugely appreciated.
    we have an order that is supposed to be sent on Thursday; and he can include it in that order. But BBQ this is not your fault, please dont think you have to send the otto through. You are welcome to keep it. I learned a lesson this month; and I'll be more careful in future with online orders.

    I have gone to every fish store in PE in the past months to get them to order these fish for me; and they all take my name down and thats where it ends. Gosh it is sooo frustrating in this town.

    HEY - I just remembered something, my spouse is going to be in Jhb next weekend on the Saturday. Maybe if he has time, I can send him to a lfs in Jhb to pick some up - if I knew where to send him?
    So if you find some in the meantime before Saturday - please let me know?

    And thanks again for the kind offer. It is appreciated, but don't feel obligated at all, thanks :)

    @Pauline, when I was speaking to moolis he did mention the last batch was not good.
    For them a doa (dead on arrival) is a very fustrating matter.
    I also been wanting some for my tank, 360L x2 with all the walls growing alge.
    I'm just saying moolis and team are very professional, that's why I brought all my stuff there.
    Except my 3 neon blue rainbow, and one neon blue gourami. They are extremely busy
    And to make things more interesting is that charline from birds and drikus from reptailz
    Will know the clients in the fish department.that's how friendly they are.
    So for not sending the Otto must be a reason, and me as a cash customer and still not
    Willing to sell to me, just shows they know the fish is still on meds.
    If I give you my bank statement, I have spent almost 15000 with them in 2 months.
    They can make more money off me, but they didn't and I respect him and his team to prevent me.
    Shawn he manager didn't even wanted to sell me fish last thursday cos my rams where dying like flies.
    Cos they care.

    Thank you, it is very nice to hear that. And it's good. I would love to visit their shop one day.
    I will still order through them.

    And now that I understand the situation better, it does make sense. I think sometimes communication gets lost through the wires. :)
    Thanks for the trouble; and kindness.

    Glad you could take this matter up, and also be so understanding
    On the great work they do for the hobbie.
    I am also glad that this could of been solved.
    If you do require help on something your looking for.
    From any shops in gauging and shops that iv been to or you know
    Of, you can give me a shout. I'll get it and post it, by Air.
    Tho I don't accept doa but I will make sure the fish is safe to post.
    I travel to one jhb lfs once a week so I do pass
    The airport fairly often.
    Want me to drop the Otto off at the airport for you?
    Won't cost you any extra, but of cos when I'm in the area.
    That's anytime next week.
    @Moolis; 10 rainbows and Otto but reserve for Pauline
    I'll pop by to the Boksburg maybe on Saturday.
    Cos haven't had time to go see some stuff this week.

    Thanks @BBQ our explanation is spot on.

    @Pauline - it is not that we do not want to send you the otto's! you are the pivotal point for the rest of the order and if they were healthy I would have send them but from the day they landed we battled with them, they looked Ok only to start with new problems the next day.
    I could have been unscrupulous, got my money from you and send them. But the chances that you would have lost them (with 20/02 hind-site) was 100%

    You can rather be angry because I refuse to take your money than been angry because I send you stock I knew was sick.

    AND

    Yes I do answer short & sweet and that could make it seem like I am not interested or rude. Well the main reason is because I do not get all my work done during normal hours and it is frustrating to work at home when my wife or children want to talk and I am busy. But ask Pet Stop customers I do try to be there for you guys as much as I can. PLUS you can not start to imagine how much time is spent to source the nice species and specials for you guys.

    Thanks @Moolis - I understand. And I appreciate it very much. I wish more lfs's would be like you. This is great service. Don't you want to open up a branch in PE please ?? :) we are close to the sea, and you'll love it here :) :) :)

    On my next business trip to Jhb, I will definitely make a stop to come visit the shop. Dying to see it. :) :)

    @BBQ , thank you very much again for the kind offer, but I think it would be better to receive a small school of the oto's than to have just one. Especially if that 1 is a bit tender, he might not travel well. From all I've read, these fish are so sensitive to travel and transporting.

    So guys, huge appreciation. Thank you.
    :) :)
