Angry Moving dilemma

I have had my bettas for quite some time and I may have to move with my aunt for a few months from NS to Alberta. I cannot drive there, I must take the plane, but as you know I cannot take fish on board. I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem and has somehow gotten their fish shipped to them? breeders do it all the time, I figured there could be some way I could do that as well *crosses fingers* Just wondering if anyone has attempted this before.

I really don't want to give them away as I have bought some of them their own tanks and most of my family and friends would not take the time to do what I do for them.

I would imagine you could ship them in cups, possibly the day before you leave and do 1 day shipping or so.... then they should be there and have your aunt be able to grab them and possibly put them in some clean water or something.

That's what I was thinking, because I believe live fish are shipped within 2 days to ensure that no harm comes to them from being shipped too long. So I think it would be safe in that aspect. I was going to research how the breeders packaged them safely as well.

I am just concerned about the package (like will it be thrown around) at the shellfish farm I work at we caught one of the carriers THROWING our LIVE shellfish into the van! oh sooo mad...

but I assume the carriers breeders use are not that way or they would not use them. I heard FedEx is one they use.

Do you think that I should be worried about them being tossed around if I choose FedEx?

If breeders use FedEx, then I wouldn't be worried about your little guy. Just make sure you plan out when the package will get there.

Yeah, I agree with this. I would definitely ship the way it is explained there!

Good luck!
