I want to make sure that the fish are not only alive when they arrive but that they're alive. I'm really hoping to make this travel as easy as possible on these guys. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.
I've never sedated my fish during shipping so I can't help you with that. I always put some Kordon fish protector and Prime in my bags, helps with stress and keeps ammonia down. I like to line my boxes with Styrofoam and then fill around the bags with the Styrofoam packing kernels.
