    "full box" shipping tips? Coryologist, Lotsoffish, others who ship alot

    I'm just a small time guy when compared to most of the legends around here so could you all share some tips on shipping a bunch of fish. Sometimes I get people wanting a larger order of fish but once I quote the shipping costs they say "that's way too much, I've paid much less for shipping more fish than that" I do the USPS flat rate medium or large but I don't like to put more than say a dozen smaller fish in medium box and maybe 2 dozen in a large box. I can get three bags (8fish per bag) in a large box and I also use 100% O2.

    I did ship a couple large fish once and the shipping was so much that I was almost giving away the fish just to get rid of them. Fed-ex wanted me to do a test shipment before they would approve me for shipping (and they had insanely high prices), UPS and regular Mail seemed kind of expensive. So how do you fellas ship bunches of fish and keep the costs affordable to the customer? Please give some refrence to the size of box, size of bags, how many fish to a bag, how much the shipment would weigh, and preferred method of shipping, and any other info that would be helpful.

    Maybe someone already answered this so a link would be great.
