    Floats the bag, so the water in the bag is equal in temp as the pond.(Mind you this is in a QT pond). After that the fish as pulled from the bag and the bag water is dumped. In general they usually let the fish rest for a couple of days before they start the chemical treatment, temps are raised so the fish can be observed and tested later.

    1. helpout on shipment day
    2. show me the QT treatment
    3. show how to draw blood to send out for testing
    4. show me the results of the testing
    5. tell me when the fish is ready to take home

    Plus i rarely take fish from other hobbyist pond, unless I know where they get their fish.
    yes,i'm sure there are but they won't confess.
