Where to buy Caridina japonica?

I had two of them, probably both males. They lived in my tanks for about four years. Good hair algae eaters.

Thanks for replies. I have Physa sp. and rams, which I did not ask for, but got with plants. I though Nerite is good for hair algae control. It seems they are not difficult to breed as needed.
