    Hey Everyone,

    Can anybody recommend a supplier for styrofoam boxes that fit in boxes?

    Cardboardboxes4U.com or just google insulated shipping container. There ae a lot out there. A little pricey but worth it if shipping some nicer stuff. Thats who i used when i used to ship a lot.

    Buy a sheet of Styrofoam insulation from home depot and line the box with it.

    Sent from my C771

    +1, never shipped in winter with it but a little duct tape and a little time and you are good to go.

    The order I got from Reef Cleaners had a hot pad in it like the type that you find in the sporting goods section of Walmart.

    +1 I used to ship dwarf FW shrimp like this in winter and never had any issues. It's a lot cheaper than ordering some specialty insulated boxes and having them sent to your house...especially when you consider that you can just line a flat rate USPS box and call it good for less than $1 extra when you include the cost of the foam insulation board.

    Thanks everyone for the help so far. I am actually trying to keep the box cold for shipping brine shrimp. If the temperatures are too high, they will use all the oxygen in the water and die.

    I'm really liking these combination of ideas.
