Our packaging is made with different sizes of bags. We use bags of 20 cm, 25 cm, 32 cm, 35 cm, 38 cm and, finally, 50 cm to L fishes larger than 30 cm. In case of Discus with sizes between 11 and 13 cm, minimum sizes, we put 12 fish per box. Fishes with size from 14 to 16 cm, we use 8 bags on trips less than 48 hours, and 6 bags on trips of more than 48 h. In case of fishes between 17 and 22 cm, we only use 5 bags per box. Regarding the L fishes, up to 8 cm, we use 15 bags per box, fishes over 10 cm, 12 bags per box, fishes over 15 cm, 8 bags per box and finally, fishes with more than 20 cm, we use 6 bags per box. On giant fishes over 30 cm, we use 2 bags per box. The box has the following measures: 38x69x45.
We used 5 bags per fish so that the fishes can not pierce them during the trip. The bags are closed with staples through a new automatic machine. The amount of oxygen by bag is fundamental, as well as the quantity and quality of the water where the fishes are transported. We consider this, the main key for not having dead fishes on the trips. Usually, we offer the water chemistry data, to Exclusive VIP Distributors and Exclusive Distributors, via a “Tropical” 6 in 1 test, which we send by email.
Usually the fishes go with a 6.7 to 7.0 pH and at a temperature of 29 to 30 ° C. The documents sent during boarding and inspection by the competent state agencies in Brazil, such as the IRS, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Fisheries, Ministry of Environment and IBAMA, are: Packing List, Invoice, Health Certificate and AWB.
