Has anyone bought a fish directly from thailand?

I saw some nice fish i wanted to buy on ebay but the fish will be shipped from thailand. I thought that shipping from overseas takes a long time. Isnt that too long of a time for a fish to be in the box? I wanted to know if anyone has done this before and what shipping service i should look for or avoid

I would look to avoid the entire process. some people have had good luck but others have not. So to me it's a crap shoot. It all depends on what you find, but there are Good sellers here in the states that import from overseas and they take the risk and the hassle. They also have some very lovely fish.

The sellers in Thailand overnight the fish to the US and then once your middleman (transhipper) has the fish, they typically overnight the fish to you. So usually the fish are only in transit for 3 days at most. Some trans shippers will let the fish out of the bag to give them a break before they send them to you.

Julie Tran, a transshipper, told this Forum if a transshipper removes fish from the seller's bag it voids the DOA agreement.
