All the fish I've imported have gone through Hung Pham.....my last batch which was 36 fish cost $410 to the transhipper on top of whatever I'd already paid the breeders/sellers. That amount includes shipping, heat packs, box fee and import fees. He normally charges $10 "import fee" per fish, but gave me a discount to $9 because I was importing so many. I've seen U.S. transhippers say they are charging only $2 per fish.
So....yeah, it's a little crazy.
