At Texas Aqua, LLC we take utmost pride in the packaging and shipping of our fish. Our process ensures that your fish arrive safe and healthy. The first step of the process involves triple or even quadruple bagging your fish depending on the amount of traveling involved and then lining the bag with opaque liners before filling with pure oxygen before sealing. The bags are packed in thick Styrofoam insulated shipping containers and heat packs or ice packs are provided to keep the water at appropriate temperature.
