Express mail becomes 2 day mail! help help help!

A disaster.

I intentionally went first this in the morning and sent out of my fish in the mail.

Apparently they didn't scan my box to send out until 5:30! So now it's in a city three hours away from the ship-to city. It would get there until 10:00AM tomorrow.

Will they survive? I mean, I'm worried about the oxygen. I put just enough water to cover them, and then X2 for air. But even there, it wasn't a ton of air, because my bags were so thin!

I'm just in pieces. There was foams, lots of newspaper for insulation, and Styrofoam peanuts, so I hope the temperature doesn't get to them.

Okay. On the other thread you made for the other fish forum, the species didn't become apperant. I wasn't aware of what type of fish. Bettas use a small amount of oxygen compared to what people think. How filled up is the bag? One third of the bag being filled with water and the other filled with air should be okay, only 2 days isn't very much

Thanks.

I wish I had a picture. It wasn't a ton of air. I mean, I'd say, take an A1 bottle, put in a betta fish, fill up water so betta fish is covered and has maybe half an inch of wiggle room, add air, to top, sort of thing.
