Re: [Killietalk] Fed Ex
Apparently, you haven't had any experience with betta shows for a long
time.It is NO longer common practice to send in bare styros. I have helped
with several shows over the last few years and there have been NO bare
styros. All were packaged correctly as far as styro liner w/cardboard box.
It is now stated that if fish are not properly packaged, they will be
repacked correctly and returned without being shown....
You can not blame one or two stupid people along the way, be it a betta
person OR killi person (or any other fish type) and put them all in ONE
I've gotten shipments from one particular killi person in BARE styros just
in the last year.
Perhaps someone should give everyone lessons on shipping fish in general, no
matter what group or groups they are in.
Just my two cents before bashing one or another group.....
