Ghost Shrimp in Portland

Where can I get feeder ghost shrimp in the portland area?

I'm looking for something like multiple GS for a buck.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

no luck

I've been to 2 petsmarts and 3 petcos in the north portland and vancouver area and nothing on ghost shrimps. the wet spot in town only sells dwarfs, not ghosts.

walmart off of rt 205 sells ghosts for 26 cents each.

btw, portland is a fun town.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Portland mom and pop stores don't carry them because of their low margins and low survival rate. Aside from getting them from planted tank members, Petsmart is pretty much your best bet.

Petsmart tends to sell out within a day or two. Just ask what day they get their livestock delivered. As for stores on the west side, I had good luck with the stores on Walker and Cedar Hills on Thursday and Dartmouth on Wednesday.

The Petco on division was out, but Cayes Pets on 136th and division had some in .50 each, they looked pretty good.
