Well if you don't find any, you can check out my S&S thread. Can combine with sakura shrimp as well. But first, I would try calling ALL of the local places and asking. Philly is pretty big, I'm sure some place might have 'em. Good luck!

I live near atlantic city, and can say that its very unusual to find shrimp in any local pet stores in the NJ/PA aria for some reason. One place carries glass shrimp, and once they had bamboo shrimp, but only one store I know has even HEARD of CRS when I asked about them, but he doesn't carry them.

I ended up getting mine from an aquabid seller all the way out in califorina and paying extra to overnight them, but there are plenty of people selling them on the forums here, I'm sure some are in the phili aria.

And if it comes to it, I can sell you some of mine, I've got a ton of babies right now. They're a bit smaller than normal selling size, but they'll grow.

Call them. Everytime I do there they have Amanos, CRS, RCS, CBS..... They have a really good prices too.

It's right over the bridge. Not far at all.

I was at aquarium center yesterday. Only shrimp I saw were vampire shrimp (filter feeders). Ugly little guys.....

Plant selection was good.

Yeah, last time I was at aquarium center I was talking to the guy about their shrimp (I bought some Caridina cf. propinqua they had labeled as 'orange bee shrimp') and he was asking me why their 'diamond shrimp' kept dying. I don't think they know much about crs/cbs shrimp care. He said they had 50 and most died within a few days of putting them in their tanks. They may have given up on ordering them.
