I Found painted Fire red shrimps in chinatown, boston $4


Soo, those that are looking for a local source of shrimps

Anyways, I found some pretty nice fire red shrimps in chinatown today. they are going for 4 dollars a shrimp (which is the cheapest i have seem them lovely pets sells them for 8 bucks)

So go if you want some =D

Aqua world, chinatown (its that odd basement goldfish store, they cleaned it up really well. O.o they sells some nices things now!)

They have the nice tanks now deep blue, fluvals. Real Driftwoods, Rocks (zebra, lava, and some i dont know what they are loL 3.99-6/lb i think)

They order tanks for you too. I tried asking for the 3 gal deep blue, their supplier don't carry it =(

Everything looked clean, no algae, no dead fish, all the fish looked healthy. I didn't pay attention to what kind of fish, besides the bettas! He has EE, and delta, and halfmoon (he labeled them all delta tails lol)

He had CBS ($4 also) too, labeled as zebra shrimps. There was only one left. He was so lonely, so i took him home lol.

Its not lovely pets, but hey better than nothing!

Gotta be careful between super deltas and halfmoons very very similar. I was at The Pet Shop in Allston and it was very eh. Algae galore, dead fish, and super over priced! 5$ for an oto... Kind if says it all.
