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....
Thanks Pam, I'm delighted to hear of the change. My last involvement
with Betta showing was 4-5 years ago. In that era we heard of (but I
never saw) show entries in a #10 envelope wrapped in damp paper towels.
:-) Tough little fishies by any standards!
You can not blame one or two stupid people along the way, be it a bettaSure I can, if they don't use just a bit of common sense about shipping
live stuff. ;-)

I've gotten shipments from one particular killi person in BARE styros justMy comments were a deliberate sarcastic swipe at those KILLIFISH
neanderthals who still think it is OK. [I didn't even think of our Betta
friends who watch, here.] <Flame Shield> UP (against my killy buddies
who ship in bare styros).

Perhaps someone should give everyone lessons on shipping fish in general, noWe do that as often as possible < http://www.sfbaka.net/shipit.htm>**,
but recently it has been a fast-moving target. Not only 9/11 and fidgety
bureaucrats or Fed Ex, but heat packs and breather bags have
revolutionized the whole shipping scene. I, for one, find keeping up
difficult. Heat packs scare me silly! Ergo, they must be a good thing. :-)
matter what group or groups they are in.
Just my two cents before bashing one or another group.....

Please forgive me, as I wasn't group bashing as much as trying to inject
a bit of rationalty into the discussion. Believe me when I say I was a
part of that Betta scene, hence I bashed me along with others. [I agree
that my wording looked more like a group bash. Mea culpa! Sorry.]
