I would wait til the springtime. Dwarf shrimps are sensitive to the cold.Someone on this Forum wanted Assassin snails and they are from Tampa Florida. I decided to wait to send to him as priority mail it might get sorted somewhere cold in between somewhere cold back East where the temps are really ice cold. I did not want to take a chance. Their is nothing worse then expecting some fish from someone and they all arrive dead. It happened twice to me. Recently from San Francisco and another time from a Aquabid person that shipped me Tiger shrimps all arrived dead as the bags leaked. I had a heat pack not work shipping from San Diego to San Francisco lost all 21 fish I shipped and that is in California.

I agree about waiting for another month or so. As much as i want them now i would hate to find that they are all dead just because i was impatient.
After all. . . it was only 2 weeks ago that it snowed for 3 days !!!

Okay, we will wait. When it warms up remind me, then I'll send shrimp your way!

Thank you! I'm even more glad that they have such a nice home with you!
They called me yesterday (long distance on your phone!) and said how great you treat them.
