I shipped one of my Bastis overnight to a buyer in Florida, and it arrived this morning only marginally responsive. Does anyone have any advice that might help? I suggested that he keep it isolated away from his other basti for the time being, and keep the number of flies crawling around in its enclosure to a minimum. Would a pedialite soak help? Any other suggestions?

I wouldn't do anything that causes stress. I would put him in a warm, humid, and small viv with nothing else and cover the tank's side walls in black construction paper. Just keep misting him every hour with room temp water, and do not throw boatloads of fruit flies in. I doubt it will eat until its back on its feet. Shipping causes a lot of stress and heavy dehydration, so those are the two big issues that need to be addressed. If he was healthy, food is the last thing you should worry about.
