    go to Nature:
    • tiger shrimp (long queue)
    • cherry red shrimp (good mortality rate)
    • taiwan shrimp (small little bugger but cheap)
    • your everyday Malayan shrimp
    • your everyday Yamato shrimp

    go to ProPet in Tampines you can get bumblebee shrimp.

    still hoping to get some tiger and bumblebee. the cherry reds are doing well but they get less and less visible as my hairgrass grows longer and longer. last week I need a trim, and man! they grew like crazy in a week to take revenge on me, this weekend looks like have to play barber again leh [:0]

    what I'm really trying to get are the coloured malayans. I used to have them, but they lost all their colours the moment I put them in a holding tank. Now all the malayans I get refuse to develop any substantial colours.

    oh and of course not to forget the mosquito shrimps. don't seem to have any supply at all! the only hope is hei-bee king breeds them in large number and release them on the market hint...hint...hint...

    tawauboy, ya lor, i also noticed choy very active when it comes to his "hei" topic![] "hei ong", "ha wong", lah!

    plantbie, try Gan when you're at Teo. read our "hei ong" got his coloured malayan shrimps from Gan...
    then after that don't forget to report back to him, so that he can get what he's hunting for and maybe reward you with more varieties! []

    choy, i just threw a bag (100's) of malayan shrimps into my 2ft plant (not "planted tank" cos "low tech" lah) tank few days ago. for varieties, what else would you suggest? ta!
    P-L-E-C-O-R-Y=M-A-N-I-A!!! YEAH!

    coryfav,
    you noticed that too, hehehe.

    choy,
    ya lah! give your hair grass a 'recruit cut' to welcome your new recruits.
    so the comman ones available now are yamatos and malayan?

    for your malayans, what about feeding them with carrots?

    wah lau, kena hantam. the real hei-bee king hiding one-side keeping quiet leh... pretend nothing happen even though I hint so hard. I only hei-bee dsciple leh. Him and Nature is the only place (plus GenX) I have seen mosquito shrimp before... very cute buggers (the mosquito shrimp I mean) they swim around like helicopters, very different from other shrimps.

    Flor, can try cherry red (but a bit ex, try to get from Nature) as they are more hardy.

    Tawauboy, none of my fishes and shrimps would eat carrot, whether raw or boiled!
