No, 99% of the time they don't die. They are packed with pure oxygen and a heat or cool pack.

You have to use a middleman that will clear the fish through customs if you're buying a fish from overseas. There's plenty of good looking fish from the US on there. Check them out first. Less stress on the fish that way.

Correct, if you buy a fish from the US (if you live in the US) then they will ship it express or overnight. No transshipper needed. Transhippers only necessary to cross borders.

Of course my AB fish was shipped Express but took 3 days to get here, so either way it's a risk. My seller didn't ask me if I needed a heat pack, I thought they automatically put one in there. My fish died the next day and the seller seems to be ignoring me.

It's outside their live arrival guarantee, of course they want nothing to do with you. You would think it would be automatic... But that costs them money
