What's safer: carry-on or fedex next morning?

Is it safer to carry a fish on an airplane or fedex them for the next morning, following the guides found on this site? (They'd be in a box maybe for 15 hours, at most.)

I'd like to carry them on but am terrified of the TSA. Even if the airline allows pets, and even if I make sure my fish is in a 3 oz container, if they say, "You can't bring that on" that's pretty much the bottom line and I can't miss my flight. But I also can't abandon a living creature.

Is there a difference in risk? Is fedexing safe?

Every airlines have different policy... but for most of em', they don't allow having a fish on board with you. They're usually placed in the climate controlled baggage / cargo compartments for a fee.

I think you answered your question. You can't carry fish on an airplane ;)
I don't have experience with fedexing fish so I apologize I can't say for sure, but I would assume its safer than trying to get on board with a fish

Ship them out before you leave, and do next day delivery. Make sure someone will be where you are going so they can take delivery. Use a styrofoam cooler inside of a box maybe? be sure to put in a heat pad if it's going to be cool/cold where you are going to.
