try AquariumPlants.com Largest online sales / service site for the live aquarium plants community. they have a distrubutor in canada and they almost always have cherries. Rain Forest Pet Spectrum Ltd. here is the shrimp page they are located in vancouver seem a bit pricy but if you want quality its here, you have to call for price i got a quote of 35 dollars for bee / crs. good luck !

EDIT: they sell ADA stuff no freaking way amazonia and other substraite sick now i have to order from there i wonder how much it costs?

yes they ship to canada they are in canada vancouver actually ! i was going to order from them to toronto and they said it would work but you'd need pryority mail and a warm spring day and alot of money. have you tried asking your lfs ? i tried at pj's pets the guy could get cherries, bee, amano, crs, and many more for about 12 dollars each and you needed to order 35 or something but if you ask the worst that can happen is them to say they can only get amano.

I have ordered twice from canadianshrimp.com They were well packed in coolers and very red. Still are very red There were also some extras thrown in when I ordered. I would recommend them...have to ask about shipping in winter though....not all places will do that.

I went back to see what was up as I didn't have problems navigating the site when I ordered. You click on Order/Browse store on the top navigation bar or whatever and then follow the links at the bottom. 'Just Browsing' lets you browse....categories are on the right. The cherry shrimp are under the shrimp category...looks like some plants were added since I ordered.

Aquariumplants.com's Canadian warehouse is located in Winnipeg. Not Vancouver. They went central because it was closer to their current location along the border & was cheaper to ship the same distance in both directions rather than clear across country.

Canadianshrimp.com has had a good rep. for a while. They have a sale on now.

Shrimp are in stock! Place your order.
Winter Sale - 10 Cherry Red Shrimp for $25.00. For a limited time only!
If you are looking for a more local store that constantly has Cherries go check out Menagerie in Toronto. The usually have them. Thats where I got mine from. If you are willing to wait mine have just started breeding like mad & I am located in Burlington.

Canadianshrimp.com prices aren't that great considering Menagerie was selling 10 for $22 no shipping needed.
