How Many In A Box?

Recommended Posts

I know the answer is here somewhere, but I gave up looking for it lol...

How many fish fit in a box when they are shipped out to you? I'm getting some new fish from Thailand and I know there is a $25 shipment fee per box. I would rather get them all in the 1 box, but I'm not sure how many fit in there?

A response ASAP would be GREATLY appreciated :)

Well it now depends on how many will fit in a box.

I have a definate 8 coming, but there are a few more I want to get. I know it will be really expensive, but this will be my last shipment for a VERY long time.

I think I once got more than 10 in a box. 25 comes to mind, but maybe I am imagining that number, or it was the shipment cost or something .... anyway they were in small bags with only a couple of cm of water. They travelled fine, no chewing etc. I'd always have them sent this way given the option.

if the box is bigger than a certain size there is a small excess on the shipping cost as it is judged by cubic space, not weight. I think it was about $5 when I used to send bettas.

Not all the fish in that shipment were mine btw - several Sydney members (and I think some Newcastle folk too) used to share shipping back in the day :) and I was designated recipient that time.

I'm pretty sure Jodi uses various sized boxes depending on how many are being sent. I'm sure I've had 20 in a shipment before.

Thanks guys!

The total I am getting in this shipment is 16 :o:blink:

I am only buying 13, but they are giving me 2 for free and another as a Christmas gift.

It is going to cost me heaps as it is, so I was sort of trying to keep shipment from someone to only 1 box lol
