I'd say those aren't true Amanos for that price. More
Likely ghost shrimp

Aren't they like 99 cents at pet smart?
Petsmart only carries Ghost shrimp. Amano's get a lot larger.

Cheers,

I remember Richmond no3 road Pet culture has amano shrimps couple weeks ago, since it is chain store maybe the one in Coquitlam will have them as well?

99 cent one in Petsmart is ghost shrimps, and it is no longer 99 cents. I believe is about 1 dollar 50 now. (At least at the station square location.)

I guess the fuzz algae is the hair algae? Depends how big of your tank, if you have 30+ you can get siamese algae eater.

Or you can use h2o2 to treat the algae. Turn off the filter than spray the h2o2 on top of algae. Allow the h2o2 to stay on the algae for a while (5 to 10 mins.) than turn the filter baack on.

7 dollar is slightly high, I believe Aquarium West and King ED both sell them for about 5 dollars now. (Depends on size.)

shrimpfever.com has it on sale for 1.99 , however you have to pay for shipping and handle and worry about lose the live stock since it is cold now.

Hey Reckon.
When I was in Aquariums West yesterday getting some Dwarf Neon Rainbows, I saw that they had Amano shrimp there. Can't remember for sure but I think they were 4.50 or 5 bucks.
Thanks for the tip on the Rainbows.

i got 5 from Aq west yesterday, 5 for $20. wasn't enough for my 65g.
April you wouldn't happen to have any Amanos?

Otherwise, I'll stop by Aq West next week. 5 for $20 is reasonable.

Thanks!

Better call ahead before you make your way to there because they do sold out sometimes.

5 for 20 is med size Amano, I believe large and X-Larger are more expensive.

I would go with Outsider's idea.I have Amano's and they do a Ok job but the H2o method worked best for me.
