No worries. Shops get a fair bit of quick die off ( possibly their fault) it may be safe to freeze these and thaw later for feedings? Wait for confirmation on that tho, I just figure if frozen for a week or so and defrosted in vit water could be ok? Only mentioned as the quantity you are getting is large and after shipping you may loose some. But they might not need to be wasted
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly
