Re: Fishes in the mail. Crawfishes, mollusk, waterbugs ....

I have had good luck getting styro boxes from pet stores, such as Petco, 
etc. They get all their shipments in these boxes, which are usually 
thrown away.  I think that a few discreet inquiries might turn up a 
whole pile of boxes that these stores would otherwise have to pay to 
dispose of.
