A few notes on receiving live lobster: After a long day of travel some lobsters may be lethargic, don't mistake this for dead—Allow lobsters some time in the tank to catch their breath. Make sure to keep a good inventory in your tank. Should your tank become empty or down to just a few, you must only add a few lobsters at one time or you will disrupt the tank balance.

Please visit our resources page for more information on tanks and maintenance.
