FYI, I use 3/4 inch thickness styrofoam and bubble wrap under and over all the fish. Good luck.

Bettas arrived just fine. All are in their temporary tanks and swimming like crazy.

High today was 90+. Unfortunately, the USPS carrier (a sub; my regular carrier is great) put them in the black mailbox despite the many warnings on the box. The seller double-bagged and wrapped them in lots of paper which must have really protected them from the heat of the mailbox. I believe there may have been some Methyline (spel?) Blue in the water.

I added a drop of Prime to detoxify any ammonia as soon as I opened the bags. That's a trick I learned from Rachel at Inverts by Msjinkzd.

Wonderful! and congratulations on the new additions! I now feel safer shipping, just the normal worry and stress. Thank you both so much.

Dream Bettas: Pure white HM or VT (for my daughter), new 'spikey' fish (CT for my son), blue & orange betta male (for my fiance), and more live plants (for my bettas )
