Yep, also known as vampire shrimp. They were bigger than I thought they would be. Almost 3 inches maybe?

About 2 to 2.5 inches. Notable because they are healthy and fat unlike typical shipments. If's you're interested in Ottos, Win's has a tank of the fattest and healthiest Ottos I've seen, though they are about 1 - 1.5 inches right now.

Check your local petsmart, went to one in Brooklyn and they are running a 4 th of July specials. They have platys, swordtails, tetras 80 cents each, I picked up sunburt, Micky mouse and red wag platys, cardinal tetras all for 80 cents each, doesn't get any cheaper then that. They are also running half price sales on glow fish. Petsmart is the only way to go on select fish.

We got in albino kribs and keyhole cichlids, haven't seen those around often. Between $5-6. I think the kribs look male just quickly looking at the dorsal fins.
