I have 5 ghost shrimp that I need to get rid of.. I don't want them anymore.. I know one is a female.. possibly 2... I'm not sure about the rest as they are medium sized and that's the only way I knew to tell them apart. I've never shipped fish so I'm not sure exactly how to go about it, but I'm sure I could probably figure it out

Shipping 5 ghost shrimp would literally cost 4x as much in shipping (not including breather bags) as the shrimp themselves. Chain stores sell them for $0.33-0.50 each...

LOL. That's actually pretty hilarious. That's like ordering peanut butter online because your grocery store doesn't carry it. XD

Even if you have to pay $1, shipping alone will be $5 minimum...

Wow, that is pricey. Check eBay. You might find some UK sources...

wow! That's a lot for cherry shrimp I would think! Those things breed like crazy and are very easy to take care of.... I'm surprised they aren't super cheap people just trying to keep them moving
