Where could I find styrafoam boxes used for shipping fish and inverts? Just the small ones that would fit one or two small breather bags. Is it something that most people just buy at the PO?

I don't know where I read it, but someone suggested that veterinary clinics get vaccines in them and throw out dozens of boxes all of the time.

If you live near a major university, check with the biology/biochem/cell bio etc. department. We go through hundreds of perfect-sized styrofoam boxes every week. They are used to ship enzymes.

Good luck!

All medical offices, groceries with pharmacy and local fish store/pet store. They usually throw it all the time. Just ask nicely.

I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the advice. I may see if I can aquire some styrafoam sheets and just cut it to line the inside of boxes. I could probably get a few boxes from the LFS, since I used to work there. I'll check it out. Thanks.
