This caught me off guard when we got ours off AquaBid as well. Basically the seller asked me who my trans-shipper was, and I had no idea what to tell him and admitted that, asking for recommendations. He suggested someone in Florida, and made the contact himself.
From what I understood about my transaction, the fish was sent from Thailand to the trans-shipper, and then re-packaged with fresh water, etc there and sent on to me. Since I'm pretty new to it I'm not sure what other things happen in between tbh.
Mine was also an additional fee to the trans-shipper. Not sure if that's standard.
