Home Depot or Lowes sells 1/2" thick EPS sheets. They come in 4'x8' sheets for ~$10. All you need is a razor blade to cut it, but you will eat blades pretty quickly as foam of this nature is a plastic.

I am quite surprised at the small size of the bags used in Post #1.

How long can a Betta survive in that? It does not say in Post #1 but I think it should.

They can live for a long time in those small bags, as long as they were properly fasted before shipping so that water pollution remains at a minimum. As a matter of fact, that bag looks larger than the ones I use, and has more water in it. I've heard tales of people who had fish lost in the mail for a week or more and they arrived safely, if a little worse for wear. The longest one that I've heard about was three weeks. No joking! These are tough little guys and most of them sleep the time away, soothed by the darkness in the shipping box.

Wow! That is truly remarkable! Without this knowledge, if I put a Betta in a bag like that I'd start to get a little worried after about 6 hours!

I certainly wouldn't depend on their long-term safety, but a short trip through Priority mail is safe enough.
