If I remember correctly, fosters (liveaquaria) uses Fedex express to ship fish. This should take only one night. However, it is rather expensive (around $35 I think). But I do think that it is pretty good for shipping fish, as it has been used for years.
More recently, USPS priority mail is being used to ship fish as well. The fish are placed in breather bags, which allow oxygen from the air to be transferred into the water through the wall of the bag. This usually takes 2-3 days, and is much cheaper (anywhere from $6 - $15, depending on the amount of fish and the amount of shipping materials used). I have received fish this way before, and it is a good method. Unfortunately, not many sellers offer to use priority mail.
