Maybe put an add in the paper for people looking to buy them for breeding purposes? lfs would probably be better than trying to send them too far.

When I've recieved fish in the post they have been as follows;
Fish do not get fed for 24hrs before posting.
Double bagged in 'breathable' bags, 1/3 tank water 2/3 air.
packed in polystyrene box, wedged in with either newspaper or bubble pack (anything to stop the bag from moving around. If needed, a heat pack is strapped/taped to the inside of the lid.
Poly box is well sealed and sometimes placed inside a cardboard box for extra security/peace of mind.
Most of the fish I have received through the post have been through RoyalMail Special Next Day delivery and have arrived before 12noon. No deaths so far.

Bags and poly boxes can usually be obtained from your lfs. Find out what the latest time is that your post office will take items for next day delivery so you can be sure not to pack the fish too early or find that you have missed the cut off time and risk the fish being boxed longer than neccesary.

Hope that helps

I think it was only about £7-8. It was definately less than a tenner.

Heres a link to the price list for next day delivery service from royal mail.
http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/cont ... tId=400026

As you can see a package weighing 1kg or under £6
upto 2kg £7.75
and anything over 2kg upto a maximum of 10kg is £19.45
A decent amount of fish would need plenty of water and typicaly weigh in under 2kg.

This is how i now offer mine.

thanks

will be keeping the ones i have as mine seem to have slowed down the breeding and they will probably end up in the planted tank when big enough.

handy to know anyway

thanks chris
