Flat rate boxes are fine, you just have to make VERY sure your packaging wont leak. I recommend double bagging at a minimum. You can order the boxes from USPS and they deliver for free or you can pick them up at any Post Office.

I apologize but no. Too much of a hassle and shipping just doesn't out way profit. It would be a wash pretty much. I have some local people that will pick up and then I can a buck here and there. Plus I'm out of work with a back injury so right now getting back and forth to the post office would be a chore for me at the moment

If things change I'll be sure to update.

Hey Convict,
( feel weird calling you Convict, btw)
Is that your Harlequin, for your avatar? Been thinking about getting one, I must have 2000 brittle stars all through my system. Getting to the point that I might need to get one.

She's dragging it into her den. I only see her when she's hungry.



This is her looking for food.

Beautiful shrimp Dino! She's pretty good sized to, looks well taken care of.
Think one would get along with a Coral-banded and some peppermints?

Well I can answer the peppermint question as I have 2 and 1 blood and they all get along. My fish don't bother her. 2 clowns 2 BC's a yellow spotted goby and a mandarin. She made herself a home beneath a rock and pretty much stays there until she's hungry, she'll come out to let me know, "hey feed me I ate that star and I'm hungry!!" it's pretty much a monthly thing. But she's cool to watch when she goes on the attack and drags it into her den.

That's cool, thanks for the info. I wonder if the reef lobster I have would be cool with one too? Research to be done, before I have an issue, but I would really like to get a Harlequin! Really cool lookin shrimp, one of the nicest IMO, they almost look like mother of pearl.
Best of luck Dino! Tank looks great!
