snails do fine in cheap zip-lock bags :P

There are two ways to ship Priority mail-
There's Prepaid, where you get the free box and ship for a flat rate, and there's normal priority- you buy a box (or use any old box), and pay shipping by weight.

What I do with the 7x7x6 is use PayPal to pay the shipping and use "Small flat rate box". Ends up at $5.15 usually.

I also arrange pick ups so I just stick the box outside early in the AM and USPS picks them up that morning.

there's one place near me out of like 20 that carries almost all the boxes available, but it's just easier to order them.

I also use the 0-box 4. it's pretty much the perfect box for 2 fish and a heat pad. and all the insulation.

I know when the mail comes by here so i normally personally hand my packages off when they come by.

The flat rate medium box is what I use...It fits 4 fish nicely and allows enough room to have plenty of water/air for the fish...

Martinismommy: I also like the fact that you wrote "fragile, breakable glass" on the outside of the box...a great idea!

Some post offices have a hard time accepting live fish...don't know why, but sometimes you have to write something else.

So they might turn it down because it has live fish?
