View Full Version : Problems and no help

I have always loved Blue Zoo. I've ordered from them for years. I've never, repeat, never had a problem. Till now. I don't know what's going on. I ordered a couple things last June and they all died in acclimation. I have never, never had anything die during acclimation before, now an entire order? Weird. But i figured it was just one of those things, and I didn't bother blue zoo about it. I figure enough people bother them. But now my next order also died during acclimation. Last time I spent 2 hours acclimating so this time I tested the bag water before acclimating and it was 1.020. That's ok for fish but inverts? Seriously?! Starfish are ok with that? Anyway, even with a 5 hour acclimation everything died. I called and they said to email. im not sure how they plan to handle this, but honestly I just do not think I can trust that company anymore. Why doesn't the website warn you they keep everything at such a low SG?

Hmm. Well it's been 8 hours since the email and nearly 10 hours since I called them and I've gotten zero help. still awaiting a response while staring at my dead specimens.

24 hours now and I received an email apology.
No offers of replacement or refund, just an apology.
I'll keep waiting to see what happens. I just do not understand what's going on over there these days. That company used to be fantastic.

Shoot them another email. I was having some issues as well and got a response to this mornings email--

We just got back online after 3 days of catastrophic server failures. We lost email as well as order taking ability. I do see you have a claim in process but unfortunately it is 3 or 4 days behind because of the server problems. They should be able to get caught up by tomorrow.

Take care and sorry for the delay.

Wow, I just got an email, and wow, it was really nice. They had a problem with salinity slipping down, fixed it, so now we should be back on track. All I can say is, there was a bit of red tape, but ultimately they did address the problem. (Ole Miss Reb I didn't even have to send a second email)
They are shipping out my replacements this week.
I'm going to remain a Blue Zoo customer.
