Singapore Wood Shrimp (Bamboo Shrimp)

I think they have been mispriced, but the Petco on 92nd and Broadway is selling them for $4.19. I bought two, and there were four remaining as of 12:30 EST.

There's no basement in the alamo.

It was probably a sale. Petco seems to put them on sale every so often, at $3.99 I think.

Wow! They sell for about $15 around here. In order to get a reasonable price, I had to order from azgardens as part of a larger plant/fish/snail order. They were $7 each, not including whatever dent they added to the shipping charge.

This is the first time I've ever bought shrimp from them, but it's been almost a week and they seem to do be doing pretty well.

I've never had a good experience there.

Frank lives in Long Island, but he works at the New York Aquarium and does local pickups there. You can email him to set something up.

I don't like it much, but petco is where my wood shrimp came from and have been going strong for 8-9 months. What neat creatures they are!
