If fish can survive shipping they can survive a few hours of transport in the car.

When you spend an entire weekend breaking down an 80 gal because you lost over half your fish and can't figure out why. If this had have happened with one of my first tanks I can't say that I would still be in the hobby...oh who am I kidding.. Of course I would! Lol!

When after the 1000 gal tank gets cracked and can't be repaired, you find a 900 gal and proceed to spend 12 hours sanding and buffing out all the scratches til it looks new again. My arms hurt

Which they deff would survive I transport fish 2 1/2 hours away from a whole seller to my house and clients houses and they do great! Like you said get them at the end of your trip tell the staff to use bigger bags with oxygen and put less fish per bag. Tell them how far you have to go. Bring a styrofoam cooler with ya and heat packs if super cold out. And if it's hot keep them cool. Drive straight home and enjoy your new friends easy breezy!

While talking to a coworker who keeps fish last night (actually I was warning her about feeding frozen bloodworm cubes without defrosting them first) I got the strangest look from one of our "blonder" coworkers. "You feed fish blood?" "No, bloodworms. Mosquito larvae... They're little worms that are blood red..." "Ewwwwww!"

Why should you defrost them first?

If you make jokes about fries needing salt at burger king while eating French fries, and consider this to be humor.
