Yep, raised from the dead kind of bump!

Since this got brought up again I thought I would comment on the subject. I have two puffers, an Arrowhead and Hairy, both of which were ordered online from Wet Spot in Portland Oregon. Granted Im only one state over in Washington and its like a 2-1/2 hour drive for me, its still cheaper to order than to drive down. It is approximately $28 to ship so I choose that option though I have been to the store numerous times. Have never had an issue with any puffers shipped to me from them.

I do find it interesting how they package puffers for shipment...

Yep, that is a plastic storage container inside the bag that the puffer is shipped in! I asked the person why they do that and was told it was because puffers will bite through the bags. Other shippers apparently just double or triple bag and the fish seem to make it just fine.

Here is my hairy puffer... shipped in a betta cup with holes

Hopefully this info helps any who are interested in ordering a puffer online.
