I buy them off aquabid, if you just need a few you can go hustle them off the employees at Petsmart. Make sure you ask for the small ones.

I do have a question. I have looked up shipping fish and came across polystyrene insulation, plus styrofoam. Is there anything different? I know polystyrene is usually used for houses.

Now, since we in Canada seem to be having some troubles with the shipping companies we desperately need to over compensate for their lack of care.

Would "LIVE FISH" labelled on the outside cause more of a problem, because they feel an urge to check it out? Are we able to label "keep at room temperature" or something like that on the outside?

I'm also going to do test runs on which packing method works best.

Hi, just a quick question - when they hip to you from aquabid, do they come to your door or is there specific shippers you need to go to in order to pick up your fish?

Sorry for the bother, just a little confused (especially since it's winter in canada) and wasn't sure where to post the question and since you deal with aquabid...

I read somewhere that the heat packs require O2 to work, however in their box they will only have enough O2 for a few hours. Should I poke a hole in the box to allow air to get in so the heat pack can keep heating?

It's getting hot where I am and I'm needing to ship a few bettas soon, so I was wondering about ice (cold) pack. When should we use them? Anything different with them from heat packs? And finally, does anyone know where I can buy some? Maybe a link to show me what I am looking for?

Thank you.

This time of year I wouldn't think a cool pack would be needed. Shipping in Florida should be fine to just ship in an insulated or padded box. So long as temps don't drop extremely cold the betta will be more than fine during shipping.
