Re: LSF Knowledge?
> As for more water than air, I would think this is a good idea for the LFS.
I agree with Bill on this one. Lots of water, minimal air, and a *very*
tight bag is the safest way for the average aquarist to move fish from store
to home. The temperature differences from the car (greenhouse) to outside to
back into a heated house can cause a lot of shock. The more water, the
slower it is to change. Tight bags reveal any leaks before you get out of
[BTW, don't ever carry worms or live brine shrimp in the same bag as fish.
The former are kept at 40F or so, and will freeze the fish on the way home.]
If you tried to ship that way, the over-tight bags would burst before the
plane got to the typical 4000ft or so pressurization. You would waste a lot
of postage sending water that wasn't useful, and the small air space would
tend to suffocate the fish if the bag just leaked and didn't actually burst.
