Bag buddies? #1
What do people reckon to these?

http://www.aquatic-auctions.co.uk/Bag-buddies-tub-of-400,name,100102,auction_id,auction_details

has anyone used them? Apparently they calm your fish and help the slime coat during transit. If anyone can give further info I might give them a shot as I'm often transporting fish on a weekly basis on up to 2 hour journeys in a bucket with air pump.

I've never heard of these before but does sound like a good idea.... but do they work and are they REALLY safe for fish??????

I've sent a link to this thread to the guy who is running the auction and he can offer his opinion...

By the way, i own the auction website, and the reason the URL's are formatted as they are, is because it aids in google searches.. :)
