Amano shrimp: where to get besides Drsfoster&smith?

Hi, I'm pretty uninformed about possible suppliers for Amano shrimp.

Only two places I know are AZGardens, and Drsfostersmith. Both pretty seem expensive.

Any alternatives? Though I'm mainly looking for amanos, I'd also be curious if there are decent suppliers of cherrys. Thanks,

I had a good experience with this seller:

http://www.bobstropicalplants.com/shop/en/15-shrimp

The shipping cost was somewhat reasonable and seller even gave me a small refund on shipping without me asking. Impressed!

Going to try this place on your recommendation, they are expensive at the LFS. (4-5 dollars at one place and 9.99 at another place)

I ordered 10 for 20$, I had 10 but a lot of them died. (due to moving from one apartment to another, and then moving them from a 20 gallon to a 55 gallon.) - I didn't bring them into the water right.


Anyone try those Thai Crabs? those little ones? They look cool, i would love a fiddler like crab (but they will eat my fishes) =(
