    Looking to get some inexpensive shrimps for my newly start up tank. These were the norm 5-7 years back. Cant seem to find them anymore recently. Anyone knows where to get them?

    Seaview normally have them in on sat but are limited. the last i went to NA also did not managed to find. I suggest you call them up first before making your trip down.

    Re: Where to get Malayan Shrimps

    Thanks all. Looks like NA is the nearest. Any reasons why the shortage of Malayan? Aesthetically not as pleasing as the new shrimps now?
    These were pretty hardworking shrimps as I remember it to be.

    Re: Where to get Malayan Shrimps

    I think it is due to profit margin. Breeding conditions are almost similar, in my opinion, Sakuras, fire red etc. are easier as their shrimplets are fully form whereas Malayans shrimplets are larvae form. but the price sold is so much different. If i am the breeder, i will go with high profit margins shrimp without a doubt.

    But as a hobbyist, i keep malayans as i find them will more character, more colorful. FYI, they are also called rainbow shrimps.

    Re: Where to get Malayan Shrimps

    Due to their low profit margin, a lot of sellers are reluctant to display or sell them...

    you should ask the shop keepers of na or seaview... most of them time they have stock but they do not have time to restock them on the rack/tanks

    Chocolate shrimp and malayan shrimp are totally different species.

    Their prices are very much different too

    honestly speaking, I almost always never ask if NA have stock of them before buying. I just tell him I want how many

    sometimes never top up display.

    Try Hong Yang Aquarium at CCK. Saw them a month back and they are still there! But its $1 for 1 though. They come in varying sizes and you can choose them. Got mine and they are still surviving well.

    $1 per piece is too expensive already. Haha

    Come to think of it, did you buy malayan or some other shrimp?

    Haha yea I know! But I didn't see much of them anywhere else last week so I just got a few.
    Few months back the boss sold 3 for $2 though. But at that time most of his stock in that packet died and I didn't dare to ask him to order again for sometime since he ordered under my request. I only got females from his previous stock in one of his tanks at that time so they didn't breed. But from time to time I see the shrimps being berried which is weird.

    Yeap! Not all of the shrimps are doing well but most of them are so you gotta choose! They didn't show much coloration at first but when I got them settled, the colours came. Just ask the boss where they are cause they aren't that easy to spot in that tank. It should be 2 tanks beside the shrimp tank, under the same area.
