View Full Version : Wait times for out of stock critters

04/17/2011, 11:34 PM

I added myself to the 'email me when available' list for a few species of Mantis shrimp I've been trying to find and am trying to decide if I should continue to wait, or just go elsewhere and order a different species that's found locally in the states. I really want either the ternantus or smithii, both indo-pacific species, but if its normally a month or longer wait on those lists then I'll just get a wenneare from florida.

Can anyone at bluezoo give me an idea on how long something like that takes?

Thanks for the question. What we have been seeing over the last few weeks are mostly the Peacock Mantis and in low numbers. We have had a couple of Smithii as well but none recently. If you like, you can send an email to [email protected] Request to be put on the special order list for whichever species you like and you will get priority on one when they hit. We do this quite often for people with hard to find or rare items.

Hope that helps.
