That I can understand,if the plants is free and they charge u $2-3 more for shipping is fine. Pretty much ur paying for the plant itself. But again ppl who does that, y not just price the plant instead of adding the price to the shipping fee.

Maybe its a $10 shipped kinda sale.

Styrofoam sheets, insulation, and tape all cost money, and should be factored into the shipping cost.

Even if the person isn't being charged directly for them, it's being made up in the price of the fish, if it isn't, then it's basically like giving stuff away.
