Hi Guys, I can understand where your coming from. I too couldn't find what I wanted when I started looking for freshwater shrimps to buy in ON, soooo I contacted people in the US and started buying from them. I have them shipped to my US address, then breed them in my tanks here at home in ON, some for resale.
I am probably the first person to bring in Yellow/OEBTs to Ontario and have increased the popularity of Crystal Shrimps throughout the GTA area!
I have (16 tanks ) of freshwater breeding shrimps, and ship regularly to BC, AB, NS, NLFD, and all over ON.
If there is something you are looking for that I might be able to get for you, please let me know.
I do charge commission on top to get it in, as I have to do all the work of getting the shipping arranged and then re-shipping once I have the items here at home. It may or may not be cheaper than what you are getting now.
Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
with what you are looking for and I can see what I can do....not promising anything, but might be able to help out.
I ship freshwater shrimps on a regular basis to all Provinces in Canada and have a very good reputation! I am also a breeder so if you are looking for something just ask.
