Default How would you ship an adult colony

Hi guys

I'm planning on selling my adult colony of 25 Chimbas and just wondering the best practices to ship them. I've never shipped fish before so I'm looking for some advice from those with experience. Size of bags, # of fish per bag, size of box, packing methods and materials, etc. Any advice you guys can offer would be appreciated!

Divide them into two different bags. Add O2 and heating packs. Ship air cargo. It's the fastest.

You have to have an account to ship with any air cargo company (Requires application as well as on site inspection). Also, shipping from Canada to US or visa versa requires custom inspection as well as more $$$. Sell them locally you will save the headache even if you take a little less money. One other point for payment that I discovered, PayPal charges more money to convert the Canadian dollar to US and visa versa.
