    Were the Cardinals WC? Because WC Cardinals don't ship very well and tend to die off very easily. Tank raised are a little hardier.

    they were tank raised. the lfs had them for 3-5 weeks. kept going in every time i was down in the area. all eating mysis and pellets. fed them while accumulating them on wednesday. ate great and fed again on friday and then monday. i think it was way to much flow in the tank.

    Oh no doubt, I custom built my stand because I was tired of how the store ones fit and work, definitely no where near how good yours is though.,
