Sure it's possible - put the fish in a bag of water and place that in a styrofoam lined box. Depending on the weather you may need to add a heat pack or a cold pack to fight the temp creeping in whatever direction it is supposed to go. I like the breather bags from kordon - they allow gasses to be exchanged while keeping water in the bag. Because of this you don't have to ship in such a large container, and because there will only be a small amount of air space in the bag, less sloshing around for the fish in transit.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
