Haven't posted here in awhile....but I saw something interesting in Chinatown two days ago. I walked past a seafood restaurant on Division Street and they had a huge tankful of Mantis Shrimps (didn't know these things were edible!). Further, the one time that I saw a mantis shrimp at Pacific it was pretty darn pricey and they only had ONE. So if anyone is into salt water tanks...you can get yourself a mantis shrimp (or four or five) for much cheaper here.
Pearling.....it's way overrated.
