    Absolutely terrible purchase. The single item on our daughter's

    Absolutely terrible purchase. The single item on our daughter's Christmas list. We ordered the shrimp December 26. After multiple communications we received a box of dead shrimp two months later. I engaged the company and they responded quickly by chastising me for "threatening them" with bad customer reviews. They agreed to resend the shrimp. Sadly it is now a week past the guaranteed deadline and we still have nothing more than an empty ball sitting on a shelf and the nightly image of our disconsolate daughter returning empty handed from the mailbox.

    If you are going to give away $35, find a worthy charity instead of this international sinkhole. They will take your money and your child's dreams.

    First of all it took about 2 months for the shrimp to actually arrive through the mail. Then when the package finally came in there was nothing in the water. No Shrimp! I think they must have died and deteriorated or something...... I don't even know how to get a refund. My 3 year old daughter started crying, but I told her we could go to the store and maybe find some shrimp there.

    Terrible. Not worth the money at all

    Shrimp are not included and there are no instructions on how to obtain them. The assembly does not result in the nice appearance on the package. Sand and decorations must be added to water before inverting the bowl which makes the shells sloppy. Several of the shells are floating on top. Don't buy this product!

    This is a consumer scam, I wish I had read the reviews online but I purchased this in the store. The shrimp have not yet arrived after 2 months and numerous emails and calls to the company. The US number they provide to call is now even disconnected. I do not understand that Barnes & Nobles still sells this product.

    Never got my shrimp!

    I ordered my shrimp over a month ago from this company, and I never received them! I have emailed the company FOUR times, and all of my responses have been ignored - for weeks! I even hunted them down on facebook to complain, turns out loads of people have been having the same issues I'm having, and the company has been ignoring them as well. DO NOT buy this unless you want to pay 30 dollars to get ripped off.

    It did take a little over two weeks for the shrimp to arrive and despite spending an afternoon on a hot Florida porch, all 4 shrimp survived and are still going strong a year later! Have topped up the water level a couple of times by adding a little sea salt to filtered water and we open the lid once a month to let more air in, but otherwise are zero maintenance.

    I hesitated to buy this product for quite a while because of the reviews. However, I finally decided to give them a try since my 6 year old had mentioned it several times. It was a Christmas gift and almost immediately after requesting my shimp online, I received an e-mail confirmation (although it was a little vague - the way it read I would not get my shrimp until June). A couple of weeks later, I had another e-mail that I would have my shrimp by the end of January and as promised, I received 4 live shrimp by 1/31. They are all doing well in their new home. Great idea, great product!

    A great product and my two shrimp are happily living. But it did take 16 days for my shrimp to come, the first package i got had no shrimp. So i called the company with the number on the shipping box(937)-228-7931, and they helped and in 8 days i got my 2 new happy shrimp.
    P.s. The phone number is for all the people out there that couldn't find there phone number.

    I bought this on 4/30/12 and got the shrimp on 5/8/12. That's a little over a week which the website said is how long it would take. I don't know why so many people were having such a hard time with the shrimp. Maybe it was becasue they ordered their shrimp in the colder months and the shrimp could not survive the climate, and who knows how the shipping company handles their packages. Anyway, the shrimp looked cute in their little "ecosystem". I would recommend this product to a friend.

    My daughter loves this!!

    The only problem for us was the long wait to get the shrimp! I ordered them a few days after Christmas and was told it would take about 7-9 days. I just got them today on 1/26/12. Setting it up was easy and it looks great!!

    Shrimp are MIA!

    The kit seems as described with the exception of the shrimp, which are missing in action! I submitted an online request two weeks ago and am still waiting for shipping details. And of course, there's no point in assembling the kit without the shrimp.
