Dear members,

I live in Manhattan, NY and would love to purchase a few bamboo shrimps for my 10 gal tank. My problem is that I don't know who sells them here, obviously I'm looking for someone local. So if anyone knows a store or a private breeder/dealer in Manhattan please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

V.

I called them on Monday and they did not have Bamboo Shrimps in stock. But thanks for the info anyway - I'll keep checking with Petco from time to time...

I was there at Petco Union Square today and they had 5 of them. I'll PM this to you too in case you dont' see this.
I was there last friday, and they had a couple, but on another note:

Frosty: Did they clean up those two tanks that they normally house the shrimp? I looked at them and noticed that almost all the shrimp in the two tanks were dead. There were at least a dozen or so bodies in the tanks, and any left that were alive were eating from them. Usually those two tanks look pretty good, but not sure what happened that time.

If you dont mind a short drive (10-15 min.) Exotic Pet Warhouse, in Yonkers, has them more often then not. Give them a call.

Thanks for the info Guns286, I now have two stores to choose from once everything is ready for bamboo shrimps. I decided to wait a couple of months, so that tank gets established better...

Sorry for the late response. There's usually some dead ones. I didnt notice half the tank dead though. Not that it surprises me.
