Default how to bring in live fish via SQ ?

Hi, I will be going to Thailand, Indonesia and probably Kuching on short trips soon.

May I know which are the known methods of bringing in Marine fishes back by air (if I happen to see something I like) ?

My target fish types are small ones as I only have 2ft tanks
- small starfish
- small unique fish (max 2 inches)
- small FW puffers (Carinotetraodon borneensis, Carinotetraodon salivator or Carinotetraodon irrubesco, maybe SAPs)

Also would anyone be able to advise what "hardware" would I need ?
- air pellets (those put in water to supply O2 for short time)
- batt operated air pump
- special box ? (this one unless I can buy there coz I will not be carrying it ard)
- thick plastic bags (like those use in LFS for "larger" fish, this I can get can standby in luggage)
- black water (to darken water to reduce stress)
- other chemicals (stress coat or others)

Lastly, to check in or hand carry ?

Check in for sure, I usually buy the fish on the day of the flight and put the bags in an Airtight box. Should not be a problem for short flights.

Refer to the link below:

If checking in, do not pump the bag full of air. Got experience with my bag of potato chips in my check in luggage "exploding"

SQ will accept livestock as check-in baggage. U have to prepare packaging materials such as cartons before u depart for Bangkok.
