I am not sure about any shops selling it, but I believe there are a few members on the AAPE forum (www.azaquaticplants.com) that typically have them. I have gotten some from Pepper on there and CauseMisaHasTheEyes also apparently has them. Perhaps post a WTB there.

Aquatouch and Aquarium Arts both carry various shrimp at various times. I went to both yesterday, however, and neither had any in stock. Keep an eye on them. I'm looking for a bunch of cherries too! Heard it's doable to keep/breed them in AZ tap water. I hope that's true.

I went to Aquatouch, but he RCS were more than 4.00 a piece after tax. Too much for me. I since got my hands on some 50 or so RCS back in early FEB and I have a ton now.

If you need some and you don't mind coming out to the Westside of Phoenix let me know.

Wow, that sounds great! Where on the west side? And how much would you want in order to part with 10-20 shrimp?

By the way, where did you end up getting yours from?

I sourced mine from a guy in Scottsdale and I ordered from eBay. I wanted to diverse the population. I'm at 107th ave and camelback. Near the Cardinals stadium. 20 for 15$ or 30 for 20$

I ordered most of mine on aquabid.com but the first 6-8 I bought from Aquarium Arts I love that store. However that is in the east valley and not the west.... darn dyslexia. I have never been to the Discount Aquarium shop on Cave Creek but I have them on my FB and see them post every now and then different shrimps. Both shops seem to lean more to SW fish and corals but they tend to carry interesting FW fish and plants.

A shop called Something in the Water in Surprise carries them, he is at the 303 and Greenway. Also, I have seen them at Petco on Northern and the 101.

Bump: Randpost, if you still have cherries for sale let me know, the 2 sources I posted above are out of stock at the moment.

Aquatouch almost always has some Neo species in stock. I have some PFR right now.
