Did you ship out your Secret Santa Gift? Please PM either Santa or myself with a shipping confirmation to let us know that your pick is filled.
Also did your pick not create a wish list or fill out the questionaire?
There are two things you can do;
1.) Use Elfster to send them an anonymous message asking them what they'd like
2.) Pm me or santa with their user name and we can ask them on here

Wait! Can we ship out now? I have mine all ready (was at the LFS today anyway), boxed up, and printed a shipping label.........THEN went back and read the sign up post that says to ship week of 12/14. DOH!! Guess I need a lesson in reading comprehension! Haha

I really need to know..... HOW DO YOU SHIP A FISH?!?!?

I have UPS and USPS right down the street..... no idea about fed-ex. I obviously want to ship super expedited....... I just need to know what I do.... package and take to them and have them mark as live animal etc?

@Jon Fishman - Make sure the person knows the fish is coming. Have Santa Verify with your SS person before you ship and make sure you consider wher eyou are shipping too. Winter has hit most of us up here in the North so no fish should be left outside.
I would suggest using Use shipnex or shipyouraquatics.com/

You can find all sorts of videos on Youtube about how different people ship fish like these links:
Shipping Fish - One
Shipping Fish - Two
Ship[ping Fish in Winter

Hope this helps!!

Why not have the fish supplier/vendor you purchase it from ship directly to your gift persons door? Unless you already have the gift fish in your possession. In the case... If there’s a LFS near you that regularly ships out fish, they'd probably be willing to pack and ship it for you.

I saw the most in depth, helpful step by step “how to ship livestock” thread the other day... lemme find

Its safe to say I'm disappointed, the guy who I got never answered me on elfster and didn't provide a r2r username, so I had no way of knowong what he really wanted. I sent him some stuff from his wish list and that was fine, but it wasn't very fun. I really wanted to give him some frags, but there was no way to tell what would've been right to send.
