Aside from the “breath­ing”, I think that huge advan­tage of the Kor­don and other such bags is the water not splash­ing and oth­er­wise mov­ing. It could be very impor­tant with some fish, as the con­statnt move of the water in nor­mal bags could be both stress­ing and exhaust­ing for them. Prob­lem with the other labyrinths could be their need of aproach­ing the water level to breath.

In fact, every­thing we know is only some kind of approx­i­ma­tion, because we know that we do not know all the laws as yet. There­fore, things must be learned only to be unlearned again or, more likely, to be corrected.Richard P. Feyn­man

Yes, that might be a prob­lem.

Very inter­est­ing note on the breather bags — we’ve always had huge con­tro­versy about their use in the betta world. I’ve never seen my paros uti­lize their labyrinth organ, while bet­tas gulp air all the time. Good to know that the bags could be used inter­change­ably with this fish (although breather bags are more expen­sive right?)

Glad that the trans­ac­tion work! That’s very excit­ing :)

Cheers

This is a very nicely writ­ten post. You have just made it more inter­est­ing. Talk­ing about ship­ping, I have worked at a com­pany that offered very good par­cel and med­ical courier Dal­las ser­vices. I worked there for a very short period of time. There­fore, I like read­ing such infor­ma­tive posts.

The prob­lem are not miss­ing com­pag­nies for safely ship­ping liv­ing Paros across the chan­nel or even across the ocean. There are enough of them, and they need not to be spe­cial­ized on med­ical things. And the prob­lem are not the bags, breath­ing bags or nor­mal ones. For Betta you bet­ter take the for­mer, for Paros you don’t need to.

The prob­lem is the costs or bet­ter: the aquar­ists who are not will­ing to pay higher costs for such ser­vices. There are enough fish, enough off­spring, enough alter­na­tives. But ship­ping them safely costs def­i­nitely more than a nor­mal let­ter or par­cel. And this is too much for many peo­ple. That is the problem.
