At http://www.bagsonthenet.com you can get 5x20x2.0 mil for $26.90 per 
thousand.  Thats a little better than a 40% savings before shipping costs.  I 
suspect that 2.0 mil bags don't breath as well as 1.5 mil.  Is there a reason 
for going all the way to 2.5 mils?  Do the fish survive as long in these 
heavier bags?  Doesn't it increase shipping costs?  Has anyone tried 1.0 mil?
