SO, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong catatgory.

I'm going to Florida this summer, I have heard they have better Saltwater stuff altogether. If I wanted to bring a coral or fish home how would I do it?

Are you flying back or driving?
How long is your trip?
Could you mail it to yourself?

Oh, I mean how long is your trip back, if you were driving. Anyway, since you are flying, I doubt you will be able to take a fish with you. I'd say just ship it to yourself the day you go back home.
Check online on how to prepare fish for shipping and go by that.

I would either ship it back or not get it.

Some stores will hold certain items and then ship them back at a later date. Maybe you could try this.

I would ship it home. If you're flying through the Indy airport, then the flight is around 3? hours I want to say. It depends on where in Florida you're going. I would ship it, but if you're taking more than two, I would do airport-airport, then be on the plane.

Are you trying to catch a fish or coral from the wild and bring it home? Or are you buying it from a store and trying to get it home?

Buy it. I would never catch one myself

Good! Then I would look into them shipping it to you. Carrying it on the plane yourself isn't a good idea - it could be confiscated and then you'd not only lose it, but it'd die, too.

Okay. Time shouldn't be drastically different then. I've found that if you fly through Bloomington, it can take 45-30 fewer minutes.

Yea, I would spend that driving home lol. I'm going to ship if I find something I "NEED". I was reading though. some of the Airlines allow them but its TSA you have to worry about. You can bring them as a carry on.

Sometimes TSA won't let you bring them as a carry-on (and the issue with liquids will be a problem), and they may get confiscated from your checked bags too. I wouldn't risk it, either the money your pay for them or their lives.

yea, I'm just gonna pay for shipping or call ahead of time.

Even calling ahead of time won't necessarily help. You won't be talking to the actual TSA agents that will be in charge of security at the airport, and it seems that even if you talk to someone about it, they can still tell you no at security. I've dealt with similar issues before - one agent said it was okay, the other didn't, so I wasn't allowed to do it.
