Well, they should work, but not under that bad of conditions lol :) If, for instance, the weather outdoors was not cold enough to freeze anything it wouldn't be so bad. Right now it is -15 degrees not including wind chill. He used the Uniheat (shipping, not people) ones, which seems to be the normal ones people use when shipping fish.

LOL my bf asked, "....How much would it cost to just be a shipper? Like...specifically for fish? A gas friendly van or whatever..."

They left them outside of your house without knocking?

No, they leave packages at the Canada Post office, outside, waiting for trucks. Last time they didn't even knock though. Tried to make me wait to get them for the next day and I threatened them to have them at my door in an hour or so

Easier explanation: Parcel arrives at Canada Post, Camrose. In the warehouse, it is sorted, and despite FRAGILE and THIS END UP being on anything it is roughly handled. Luckily, with ifhs properly packaged (as they were) rough handling is not too too bad if they don't play bloody football. Then the parcels are left outside for anywhere between 1-4 hours before a truck comes and gets them

(and no you may not see pictures of the new fishies, we want them to be a surprise!)

Well to me it seems USA has a better streak then we do o_O Your shipping is cheaper, you have a wider range of breeders, and most of the time the fish arrive alive. Or, at least from what I have heard.
