Yeah I had to print of their policy and prove to them it was ok. They still refused and told me I had to poke holes in the box so the fish could breathe and pay express for it. I asked for the manager (because he knows I ship fish at that post office) but it was a new guy. I guess the old one I knew was transferred. Anyway, he still didn't let me.
So I went to a different post office and explained to them what was going on and that I've done it in the past no problem. I didn't have to show him the papers I printed because he had one already posted on the wall. We both checked it together and he didn't understand why there was a problem at the other post office. I'm just glad I got it sent safely, she arrived safely, and it worked out. It was still a very frustrating experience, though.

Oh thank god, yeah that post office was bogus. I'm sure they were just worried for the animal's safety but sometimes you just gotta let people do what they do lol. I'm glad the other post office let you send the fish though!

Yep, whenever I order bettas and it says "Live Fish" on the box, they bring the box right to the door. :) I like the postal service in my area, they're very efficient and I get my fish right away. Haven't tried shipping a live fish myself yet though... but I guess it really depends on how nice your post office is haha

The box I just got had live fish written on it and I had no problem. They got here safe and sound.

Yeah, I feel uncomfortable sending live fish without writing "Live Fish" on it. I'm just glad she arrived safely and everything was OK.

lot of people are shocked when I mention getting/sending fish in the mail. Just put fragile or perishable on it and hope for the best.

try shipping frogs, they get REALLY confused then! lol

One of the workers at our post office was asking if my babies made their trips ok when I was shipping them out. It was a nice change of pace.
