I received my Assassin Snails yesterday and they have already gone to work in my tank
I am going to tell you how they were packed in detail. There may be some obvious things that I am listing but I always like to give complete details whenever I can. So here it goes.......
1. The Assassin Snails were placed in a small fish bag with Water and Java Moss along with a couple of ramshorn snails in case they were hungry during the transit. They must have been hungry because all that was left of the Ramshorn Snails were the shells.
2. The Bag was wrapped in newspaper and placed in a styrofoam cup with small holes poked in the cup. The cup had a lid placed on top of it and the lid was taped down to make sure it was secure.
3. The cup was then rolled in Bubble Wrap and placed in a small Box with foam peanuts and some soft pink insulation like material.
4.There was a UniHeat Pack that lasts 72 Hours+ placed inside the box next to the bubble wrapped foam cup.
I hope this helps you if and when you ship your Assassin Snails in the future.
