Amano Shrimp
Do you know where to get Amano shrimp (Japonica) in Brooklyn or Manhattan? Thanks.

Win Aquarium almost always has then. Not sure of the address, its in Chinatown tho. Do a search on here and you'll find it as its been discussed a few times. They had $1.50 amano shrimp. They call them algae-eater shrimp tho, and they're mixed with other shrimp, so make sure you know what an amano looks like beforehand (tho the owner is very knowledgeable as well).

I did just find the largest amanos I've ever seen at a fish store in Astoria on Astoria Boulevard for $2.99. They're double the size of the ones at Win. But that's not Manhattan or BK.

I went to Win yesterday. Amano are on back order. Thanks for your help. Finally I found them at LFS near my house.
