Originally wanted to know because I need to transport one in the morning and didn't want to net in the morning. Then I am thinking of having some sent to me but as we all know the postage is super high! So I just wanted a general time line.
Fish can live days in bags. *** had fish shipped on 2day ground and all was good. I would do the fish the favor and bag it up as late as possible. It's kinda like going to jail. You wouldn't wAnt to go in early would you?
2-3 days is ok, generally, if bagged and packed properly. I used to ship USPS Express, and would bag Sunday evening for Tues delivery, so almost 48 hours in the bag. Worked fine. I also didn't want to bag in the morning.
I did get him bagged. I found that using a small pitcher to hold the bags was useful see that I only have two hands. On that note my Hara male colored up nicely by did appreciate the net any where near the sponge he has claimed! lol
I use the pitchers also, or small cheap wastebaskets or even buckets for larger bags. I try to leave it there, if possible, to bind it up. Lose your grip and that bag flops over and all the water spills out pretty quickly. As me how I know that.
lol i bring my water test kits with me and just fill up three or four in my LFS setups. nobody ever is too curious. id rather be safe then sorry. for good measure i also dont buy anything that hasnt been around for weeks at LEAST, just my tricks and gl to ya sir.
