How to ship fish?
a discussion has come up on rec.aquaria.freshwater about how to ship fish
and the only input we've had has been from wholesalers who use
tranquilizers and airfreight. How do people ship killies? Is it as simple
as having a cup of water with the fish and some air all in a styrofoam box
with a heat/cold pack? Things I've gleaned so far:
1) pH below 7 to prevent ammonia poisoning
2) no feeding for 3 days before to clear gut.
Anything else? Thanks in advance!
