Ghost shrimp are really cheap at Petsmart(at least at the Quarry location in NE MPLS.) $.33 a pop, and pretty cool to boot. I know World of Fish in Richfield has RCS, going tomorrow to find out how much...

Terrequatics has ghost shrimp for a dollar a dozen i believe.
They're closed until wednesday though she opens wednesday with her regular store hours.

She also has other kinds of shrimp, not sure what kind but they were yellow, i think it was around 5 dollars for one

If you're looking for alot of them, i know of a guy in st.paul who's selling RCS for 50 cents each, with a 20 dollar purchase minimum ( he usually gives more than what you pay for ) don't know if he's still selling them, he goes by flowerhorn2 on minnfish
