    A lot of my assassins have eroded shells to varying degrees. Probably they're not getting enough calcium. Punk rocker is a good example of that... most of the trademark yellow and brown stripes have been worn away and white shell is left underneath.
    Thanks for the info, and the explanation on the shell color!

    To mail them, just double bag in a small fish bag, fill about 1/3 with tank water and put in a small priority mail box and send

    I have never mailed any before, so if anyone has any packaging advice I could use it.

    By the way, mine are in my tank with RCS and I have never seen them eating shrimp. I did see them eating on a neon that died a few months back, but I am sure he died from old age.

    Man, that'd be awesome!...I sure do appreciate it...and thanks about the Chargers thing, LOL....hey, my 2nd favorite is the Texans

    Does anyone have any info on shipping them?...Forecast for where I'm at for this week: Wed 55F, Thu 68F, Fri 68F, Sat 70F
