    so I went to my LFS today and was looking around for my new rainbows. Found what I wanted only to be told they can't sell today cause its too hot and against the law. The temp at the time was 46c. Any one heard of this before?

    Nope but it sounds like an obvious transport issue, I doubt they are looking for reasons to not take your money..

    OTOH Maybe they are just tired of people coming back with dead fish on hot days and it's easier to say it's illegal.

    What did a google of OZ laws regulating aquarium fish sales tell you?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Did you call some other stores and ask them about it?

    What temp triggers it? How long this law has been around.. Etc..

    Never heard of anything like that here in the states. If you think about it, kind of makes sense. What 850R makes sense. Probably too many returns or complaints about fish dying on the drive home. Whenever I have to move fish in summer or winter, I leave them in a styrofoam container. Less of a temperature swing that way.

    Maybe you go early in the morning when temperatures are lower?
