    I've wondered about that, because the temp change between TWS and you (and me) can be quite significant...if they pack them in Portland when it is very cold, are the heat packs geared for there, or the final destination?...or an average of the two?...and how cold does the cargo hold in the airplane (if applicable) get?

    so how are fish shipped from TWS? In packed styrofoam fish buckets? or how?

    ahh so it would be similar to my omaha steaks probably. They ship in styrofoam coolers and sealed up pretty good. But I am sure thy pack it with something to keep steady temps vs my dry ice I get with my steaks. lol

    yep that was helpful. Glad they are packed tightly like that. What was printed on the bags themselves? how to add them to a tank? And is the paper booklet what you got or just general fish info.

    The "paper booklet" is not as thick as you would think, its actualy your invoice and yes the printing on the bags is TWS recommendation on how to slow acclimate your fish.

    The bags look similar to the ones used by my LFS. The best thing is that the "corners" are rounded so no chance of a fish getting stuck or squished in there like in a regular plastic bag you might get at Petsmart.

    Just be careful, if you acclimate in the bags, to make sure that they all come out when you pour them into a net!...they can sometimes stick to the inside of the bag....trust me, my brilliant self almost threw a poor cory into the trash
