Was scouring the NANFA site and reading the Spring
issue of 'Currents'.

A good article on how to on shipping fish.

This is something I have had some experience over the
last 30+ years in the fish biz,

one proviso I would like to add,

when shipping catfish, anabantoids or other
airbreathers, use compressed air not pure oxygen, the
pure oxygen will kill most of the direct airbreathers.

I have seen a number of folks shipping killys and
other small fish with the Kordon 'breather bags', also
got some rotifers last year from a friend in Fla in
them and they came in excellent.

Great mag and full of good info.
