2 day shipping on peacock?

I am receiving a peacock from a friend online and it is 2 day shipping. Assuming the appropriate conditions, how much is 2 day shipping pushing it?

Inverts are sensitive usually. IMO I wouldn't risk it. Especially since it always seems to be harder to get mantis shrimp in the hobby than other more commonly bought inverts. If it does die you might not be able to find another for months.

There will be an ammonia spike as soon as you open the bag. Have water ready. If you can find out the salinity itís arriving in match it.

Either way Iíd get him in new water ASAP.
Less than two minutes asap.
