^ I know who you are talking about 1fish2fish but I really think it was a misunderstanding. She has bought me an import pair for Christmas, sent me a PK, and I just sold some fish to her. But I think this conversation would be better in a PM.

Question: Why is it a no-no to label the box "LIVE FISH"? Sorry, it might seem like a dumb question, but I'm just curious.

EDIT: 1f2f, that is a big concern of mine about buying/adopting live fish online through a forum. I am adopting one in a few days from someone here and I am nervous about it for that very reason...

Because it can cause delays...some people do it but I don't. It will definately cause problems with Express mail since FedEx is in charge of USPS Express mail and FedEx does not accept live fish. As long as the fish is properly packed it doesn't matter. Also they only ask if there's anything living in the box but they don't specifically ask for fish (hehe). Also if I were shipping something like a glass vase I wouldn't label the box GLASS VASE.

So, if you really wanted to label it as anything, you could label it as "fragile" or something like that which is really generic?

But I suppose that makes sense.

I had to have my box labeled that when I got my AB boy shipped to my dorm...They like to shake the boxes (the kids who sort the mail) becuase theyre all but 5 years old, it seems. Theyre so stupid here! D:< Also to get it sorted and picked up faster from the dorm's mail room. No delays D:

WOW... I found a vid titled "microworms cheap" Yeah right.

In a tiny container it's barely filled a centimeter, and he charges $4 for that. THEN he charges an extra $3.50 for a $.10 bag so that they don't die in shipping. I mean... just WOW. Mrvamp, I personally think your prices are 10X better than that. As a matter of fact everyone else on aquabid offers a better price than that, and they offer a lot more microworms.

I mean, this guy ships using PAPER TOWLS for petes sake. His fish seem sick (Noticed a breeding pair... female torn apart) And he is charging about 10x more than the worth of everything. Just wrong x.x

Eh, kind of wondering, what is a "5 star" plakat fighter? Is it a term showing their aggressivness/strength?

EDIT: Wow... he even has a video on how to pay him XD

Fighters are rated on their agression and blood. 5* are the most agressive.
