Video of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqyZJRp4uQ4

There is a subtle hint of blue in them, but I would not call them blue... I'm pretty sure the blue color has to do with diet or something... I've read that a fish-heavy diet works, but I think it's all speculation.

The plants are all fake, they love to eat plants. I'll throw extra trimmings, mosses, algae, etc in there for them to feed on all the time, and they constantly graze on them. That "pile of snails" is just gravel glued together to hold the fake plant down.

I do put floating plants in there from time to time and they don't last... but then that could be them eating them or inadequate lighting as it's just a single T8.

I've never seen any health problems on them, nor ever a corpse. I do see molts once in a while, though ;)

I offered babies at 1.50 each + 6 dollars for small flat rate shipping (no DOA guarantee) or 12 dollars for a box shipped priority with insulation and DOA guarantee. Is this price not cheap enough? If you were looking for a DOA guarantee for live animals shipped via small flat rate, good luck with that. I hope someone else can help you out.
