When shipping fish I always fast the fish 2 days before shipping. In the case of BNs I usually leave the cholla wood in the tank and withhold feeding. Would this be counter productive? It just occurred to me that these guys are still rasping on the wood, therefore probably ingesting it, and possibly still defecating in the bag! To all veterans out there that ship BNs, do you leave them with the driftwood or no? Thanks for your input : )
