I never heard that, So you would leave your betta in a sealed bag for weeks?
Anyway even if the betta made it, The bad part is. And this is where bettas that bite there tail during shipping. They are sitting in the dark, In a little bag with there tail hitting them in the face some times. They don't no which way is up. Could you imagin if you were locked in a black room that you couldn't see your hand in front of your face, And then the room is tossed around getting shipped to another country or state.. Very stressful and crazy..

I was just saying that, should there be a delay in the mail the fish would survive at least a week or more. I wouldn't leave a betta in a bag longer than they need to be but I have kept imports in then for up to 3 days during acclimation (insanely slow).

Also if you lay the bag flat in the box it gives them a bit more room, and a little less depth so they can just lift their head to take a breath and their fins won't be smacked around as much. I've never had a betta arrive with shredded fins when shipped this way.

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.

As I have seen, the heat pack is only good for 40 hours. I will travel on a boat which will last to 3 days, does it is still okay to used heat packs? or I will just replace it after 40 hours. It might get stressed. Please advice?

Being how its up north... I would imagine so. But if you were shipping from Florida to Texas... maybe not.
