Talking New packaging for shipping idea!

So I have this new shipping idea. Ok so basicly what I'm using are, styroam inserts for box, heat pack, newspaper, shredded paper from a phone book, double bagged fish (note there is no water or fish in the bag you'll see...it's just for demonstration) and a big Hefty trash bag.

Step one: Cut styrofoam and line the box:

Step 2: Unwrap heat pack. Let sit for a few monuets.

Step 3: Wrap heat pack in newspaper and add to bottom of the box

Step 4: Add trash bag to box, fill with some shredded paper. Add fish and cover the fish bag with shredded paper.

Step 5: Fold bag into box.

Step 6: add styrofoam lid:

What do ya think!?

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Looks like a great idea, especially for mid-winter shipping!

I would definitely be pleased if I ordered a fish and it came to me that way!

My biggest worry is insulation, I think it would be good for winter shipping too!

Here's where I got the idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr-3s5nxVDg

And some fail shipping videos:

Key words in the second video...replacement fish...it's not that hard to put some air in the bag...

Some GOOD videos:
