How much do the amanos go for?

Amanos at The Wet Spot are way too expensive IMO

Best guess at the top of my head:

Amanos: 2.99 to 3.99 ea.
Cherries: 2.99 ea.
Bamboo: 9.99 ea.
Red Crystals: 5.99 ea.

What he said. I'm in eastern Washington.

Have any of you PDX guys checked out Cayes fish on Division? They always had a really nice selection of livestock. I never checked out their shrimp selection though. The only LFS I've seen to carry a chinese high fin banded shark. They had a really nice planted DT when I was last there.

I can totally vouch for SHMaRiM shrimps both CRS and OEBT.....Honestly he's probably NW shrimp keepers best kept secret. His OEBT stock is healthy, active, nice Blues! He also has a good stock of CRS. His prices are fair and carries quality shrimp.

I recently purchased several OEBT and they are doing very well!

Dropped into the Wet Spot to pick up some Crypt W Florida Sunset (super pretty) and checked out the tanks. No more tigers, big batch of very nice looking sakura-ish cherries (I'm not an expert), lots of juvie CRS, no berried females this time, still a big tank of Amanos. There's more shrimp in the "Blueberry" tank, say a dozen. Definitely look like blueberries this time, color shifting, big brown stripe down the back, in general all the shrimp tanks are much healthier looking.

Also got a chance to swing by The Pet Loft on Macadam in SW. They had glass shrimp, amanos, cherry shrimp and bamboo shrimp, no others that I saw, but I didn't check for a "rainbow" bowl on the counter.

BTW, I provide the wet spot with their inventory of CRS occasionally... I find it to be a good way to get rid of my culls. Just figure you guys should know if you decide to spend ~$5 for CRS there... You can get the same shrimp from me for $2.50 or spend $3.50 for some S,S+ higher quality ones...

I was there a few weeks ago and didn't see any shrimp at all! Must have missed them. Fish seemed healthy overall, very nice saltwater selection also.

Cayes rarely has shrimp and when they do it's ussually a few crs on a half gallon tank on the counter. There selection is always changing, and they will buy plants!

Thank you!

I've got s+ for $3.25 each until tomorrow. Regularly $3.50

Had my culls on sale for $1.50 each and they sold out in a matter of days so I extended the sale to my s+.

And I have been shipping all around the US recently. Sent shrimp as far as New York with no problems whatsoever...

the wet spot prices are insane, 4.99 per cherry?! world of wet pets has them 2 for 5.00 and even that seems expensive.

I wish I could find someone close to beaverton with rcs for 1.00per, driving to vancouver is kind of out of the way and the gas to get there kind of balances out.
