How Would I Ship Fish?
 
I might not ship fish, but I am curious, since I am selling about 45 of my 50 something guppies. Yes, I KNOW my fish tank is way overstocked, but I am selling my guppies. How would I ship them? I can easily take them to whoever lives in town, but out of state? I really want the best for my fish, to make sure they arrive safely and not completely stressed. Thanks in advance!

A box that is insulated with star-foam or something like that with heat packs in it since its winter. Don't put heat packs on the fish bag just around it there is a article on it I read because I'am going to sell some of my fry. Don't put too much water in it because they ship by weight. Shipping will cost a lot so you will have to make them pay otherwise just give them away.

I wrote an article for the articles section about shipping fish. Just click the link in my signature if you want to check it out.
