 About  discus  shipping:  If  you  pack  them  well,  they  can  easily  make  good  journey  over  24  hours.  I  remember  sending  10-odd  juvenile  discus  by  bus  to  my  friend  at  Satara  who  collected  the  shipment  after  24  hours.  
 
 My  first  batch  of  wild  discus  which  came  from  Singapore  easily  survived  15  hours  from  the  packing  time,  they  were  packed  individually  in  small  bags.  So  neat  packing  &  discus  can  always  make  good  journey.
 
 No  idea  about  FH  shipping  though.

 Double  bag  aggressive  fish  with  a  sheet  of  news  paper  folded  over  between  the  two  plastic  bags.
 Add  a  mild  tranquiliser  to  the  water  if  you  can  get  your  hands  on  it.
 I  have  shipped  5-6  inch  RBP,  tranquilised  and  double  bagged  without  any  trouble.
 
 As  for  the  oxygen  holding  out  for  the  duration  of  the  shipment,  don't  feed  the  fish  for  4  days  before  shipment,
 Their  guts  will  be  completely  empty  and  they  will  not  foul  the  water.  They  can  survive  a  transit  time  upto  5  days  on  an  empty  stomach.

 Whenever  stock  arrives  in  LFS  I  always  see  that  the  water  in  the  bags  is  yellow.  What  do  they  add  in  water?

 I  have  also  sent  my  old  16"  RTG  arowana  to  New  Delhi  without  any  sedative  &  no  fuss.
 You  get  those  little  carbon  beads  which  absorb  bioload  during  shipment,  which  helps  a  bit.

 More  important  than  anything  is  the  water  quality  of  the  packet.  As  Madan  said  starve  your  fish  do  daily  water  changes  in  the  tank  for  2-3  days  prior  to  shipping.  On  day  of  transport  add  a  bit  of  Methylene  blue  to  your  water  in  the  packet  and  use  30%  of  your  tank  water  and  the  rest  fresh  de-chlorinated  water.  If  you  can  get  a  few  sticks  of  carbon  it  helps  in  keeping  the  water  quality  better.  Try  and  keep  the  ratio  of  air  to  water  as  30%  water  to  70%  air.
 
 I  have  had  fish  in  packets  for  almost  a  week.  Its  just  how  your  water  quality  stays.  Ammonia  is  a  big  killer.

 What  trick  you  are  expecting  for  packing?  Simply  pack  them  well,  that's  all.  If  number  of  fish  is  high,  pack  them  in  separate  bags  instead  of  overcrowding  in  single  bag.  
 2  days  of  starving  is  enough  for  juvenile  discus  before  shipping,  if  you  starve  them  for  longer  term  they  will  go  stunted.
