I used to keep them in the fridge between wet paper towels in a ziplock bag. They would keep coue days.

Throw them in a collender and put them in a cooler with ice, make sure the collender is a little above the ice, set it on an upside down bowl or something. If you can rinse them every couple days real good with salt water they will keep for a week at least. I have a salt water tank so its pretty easy for me to rinse them with fresh clean salt water.

You know those plastic-lidded clear-basket thingies that berries come in from Wal-mart? Those happen to fit perfectly inside a small lunchpale type cooler. If you put some ice in the bottom of the cooler and keep the fleas elevated the fleas will last for days. If you keep ice in there and rinse with seawater they will keep much longer.
