Potential Critter Keepers

So here is the deal...I've been wanting for a long time now to get rid of most of the smaller containers I have and get a larger tank to divide...

If all goes well, I'll have 3 Critter Keeper type containers so offer. Two of them are 1 gallon, and one is...about 2-2.5 gallons, I believe. They're all in pretty good shape, although they may have some small scratches & scrapes.

Things is, I've never had any experience with online purchasing/shipping/etc. Can someone offer me some advice in regards to that? And, most importantly, is anyone interested in buying them? Whatever it costs to ship it to you is what you pay.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

I would go through pay-pal for any of your online sales. And the biggest thing to remember is, if you are trying to figure things out communication is the key.

Other than that, I have only purchased, not sold. So good luck.

Check prices, usually Canada Post can be cheaper than shipping companies, sometimes not. But yes, pack them up, weight and get an estimate and then sell them online for the cost plus shipping (since you'll know what it is). Always get tracking, it saves you butt. And last, use paypal. It protects both you and the buyer. If I actually needed tanks, I'd so buy them.

Okay, thanks for the advice everyone. I'm assuming shipping costs varies depending on the location?
