Singapore wood shrimp. I can't think of anything else that would be save. And that is still a gamble. Those shrimp have no defenses. They might be too large to be eaten in one bite but the fish could...

No, do not. That pertains to shipping chickens and such that have to be boxed a certain way. If you use the Paypal website to print the label it does not even prompt you to check this box.

Cold packs usually only last a few hours, depending on the temps where the package is. Odds are that by the time your shrimp arrive in FL, the cold pack is useless. I also like to ship on Saturdays....
