Shipping fish is very easy but I've never dealt with angel's. I go to home depot or lowes and get foam sheeting like they insulate houses with I pay $12 a sheet and you can get a lot of boxes out of that maybe 10-15 or more. I cut the sheeting down inside my boxes and make a cooler 4 sides a top and a bottom, do not feed your fish for 2-3 days before shipping so they don't pollute there bags. double bag each fish separately with plenty of air (don't blow in the bag just run your hand down the bag to get the air), place in cooler box with packing peanuts newspaper bubble wrap so it's tight the bags are not flopping around seal up box and ship your fish. If it is hot or cold you can add heat/cool packs. You can also use kordon breather bags to be extra careful. Depending on the size of your fish and how much water you place in the bags 2hr shipping should run you between $5-$15. I use USPS and have never had any problems, I've heard fedex is really good but I refuse to use the as they have damaged many of my packages.
