Honestly I don't know. These guys are hardy... extremely hardy. But I doubt they would ship terribly well... It would be risky. I promised it to my buddy who has the cube tank on here (He lives down the street) if I decide to find him a new home. He does this splitting behavior about once ever 2-3 months... But I think I figured out the trick. Lots of feeding, and a sudden light change = split. If he decides to not take this one I'll definitely keep you in mind! But I have no idea how I would go about shipping him... wouldn't be impossible to figure out of course.
