I just picked some up at my local Petco. 2.39 each. They have them marked as Japanese Algae Eating Shrimp. I had to ask for an employee to get them in, but a few weeks after my request I have 7 in my tank!

You're on the website to purchase them.

Check out our forum sponsors - specifically Invertebrates by Msjinkzd.

Anything sort of rare or exotic that Msjinkzd offers is probably worth getting from her. Can't recommend her enough.

There are also other people who sell shrimp here at times who also have Amanos so keep an eye out for them as well.

Quite a few local fish stores keep them in stock as well.

They usually have crap stocking for ornamental dwarf shrimp (neos, bee shrimp, etc.) but they should be OK for Amano shrimp.
