Amano Shrimp in NY?

Anybody know where I can get some amano shrimp in the NYC area? I have a car so can get to anywhere pretty much. My moss farm is taking off so need some amanos to keep the place clean. Price is not really an issue but I need at least 15-20.

thanks.

Thanks for the help guys. I just called Aqua Star and they have them in stock. Luckily my buddy is in NYC for the weekend and will be picking up a batch on his way back to CT.

Thanks again for the replies.

Random question but are you the same hedge_fund user from reefcentral with the 1000+ Gallon reef, as well as a narcosis angel and peppermint angel?

is aquastar the one on mulberry street. Can you find out how much he is charging? Monster has them for sure at 3$ a piece. If aquastar isnt too much I might go there since its closer to me

Definitely not...I'm not into reef tanks. There are actually a decent amount of people that work with me at a hedge fund who have reef tanks.

Oh you have a very similar name as one user on a reef forum who is one of the few people in the US who successfully has 2 of the most expensive and difficult fish to keep in captivity. I wish i was able to work with people who had an appreciation for tanks and didn't think i was some nut spending 1000s on fish.
