    I will be starting shipping soon and need to know if anyone had any inputs on Heat packs for shipping Fish. I have been looking on aquabid but need some input first. Thanks. :happy0034:

    Hello Navy,

    I hope you and your family had a great weekend. I'm sure Shawnie or MM can help you out with the heat packs. I think they're pretty cool the way they work. I've only seen the one that came with my boy Wriggley from MM. Wish I could you more!

    We had a good weekend. The wife spent the whole day yesterday doing cupcakes because she did way too much mix. I don't know what She was thinking. I think She thought She was making a birthday cake. Hahaha. She didn't want to go to waste so She made a bunch and we are gonna take some to her friend today. Thanks Ken I'm sure one of them will post some around.

    I just shipped (overnight)from here to the south...I did NOT use heat pads......extra newspaper and Styrofoam was what I did as it was in the 70s during the day....if you are doing overnight shipping, I wouldnt use them....anything more than overnight, you might consider it....just get the 20 hour heat packs...

    I buy my heat packs on Aquabid.....You have to be very careful how you use them as they can cook a fish in no time....I just had my 1st DOA and I'm pretty sure it was heat pack related..

    Thanks. I think I won't be needing them. Since I probably ship this week. Waiting for the guy to answer a mail. To see if is ok.
