What is the survival chances on a Lq (X2) being confined for a week in a container, being shipped ( conveyor lines, plane, etc.)?

I'd say the same as if you left it in its tank for a week.

I've had a C. margaritatus arrive that had molted en-route. It did fine (for a month or so, anyway).

Edit: wait, maybe it was molting when I opened the package . . . I forget. scratch

Thanks again "M"; I think the two Lq's I'm getting are in the molt process too (3I to 4I).

they should survive just fine, but there are more than enough CB LQ here in the states to make ordering from overseas an uneccessary pain in the rear.

Believe me when I say, I have tried numerous dealers/breeder throughout the conus USA to try and find an Lq. I exhausted several by continously going back to them. I gave in when one of the fine people on here offered me a deal. If you know of any dealers/breeders here, please feel free to advise me as it wil be appreciated.
