  1. I'm active duty in Hawaii, and I'll be moving to the mainland USA next summer (2023). We bought a house that came with a baby Oscar Cichlid in a 30 gallon tank BUILT INTO THE SHOWER WALL..... 2 years later, he's already outgrown his 55 gal and is getting upgraded to a mansion tank soon. Fast-forward through my first time fish owner struggles, we now love this sassy Oscar so much, and couldn't imagine leaving him behind. I've tried reaching out to pet transit companies, aquarium stores, and the department of agriculture here, but I'm not sure the best way to ship him to the mainland - "best" financially for me, and safely for him! I'm thinking this, but need help with specifics! He's about 12" long and still growing! - Styrofoam cooler in a box - overnight shipping. - Double bag the fish in a giant plastic bag (not sure if there's a special kind of plastic, or how to get pure oxygen in there, or what pressure to fill the bag to) - put StressCoat in the water? I would really love y'all's stories and suggestions! Please help me not kill my Oscar - we wanna have him for 20 years!!!
