Marv, peanuts and paper are fine. I just make sure not to make the box completely airtight. You might not have noticed on the last box I shipped you, but I had a fussy weird way of taping that left the sides of the flaps untaped :)

I was just thinking about this and thought this thread would be a good place to put it. It is pretty obvious, but avoid shipping 2 weeks before and one week after the Christmas holiday because, USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL (you name it) is going to be extrememly busy and there is a better than normal chance of your package being delayed.

Why is taping the heat pack to the top a better idea than taping it to the bottom?
Heat rises. Would it not make more sense to tape it to the bottom and then place something like newspaper on top of it to avoid direct contact with the frag bag.

wouldnt it be because that the heat pack is alot warmer than the frag needs it to be, and that by placing it up high and allowing the heat pack to dissipate a bit, it would be around the same temp as you keep your tank?
