    Called up petmart, but their bee shrimps are out of stock. Previously, they were selling at $12 for 20 pieces. Where can i get bee shrimp at such prices?
    Lake aquarium selling at $1/piece and $16 for 20pieces.

    Anyway care to share how much u guys bought ur shrimps and where?

    Below are the cheapest prices i can find till now:
    1) Tiger Shrimp ($1/pcs , $16 or 20pcs Lake Aquarium)
    2) Bee Shrimp (same as above)
    3) Cherry Shrimp ($1.50)
    4) Rocket Shrimp ($1.50, Yishun central lfs, currently out of stock)
    5) Mosquito Shrimp (Never see before)
    6) Wood Shrimp (Never see before)
    7) Yamatos (Petmart $12 for 20pcs)
    Malayan Shrimp ($0.10 @ Yishun central lfs, 100pcs for $8 i think)

    Feel free to list down those shrimps i've missed out. My shrimp tank already setup so now hunting for all kind of shrimps

    errrr... guys, is it ok if I can request that you don't do a 'price list' thing as it won't be good/fair for lfs in general. Please understand that this could be a sensitive issue and may lead to unplesanties. To me, listing where is available but price listing should be avoided.

    Hope you guys understand. Thanks for your co-operation.
    Cheers!!

    for wood shrimp you can find them at Clementi Blk 328. their size is quite big abt 3-5cm....
    If I have a dollar & you have a dollar & we swap, neither is better off. BUT if I have an idea & you have an idea & we swap we are both richer

    U may wanna check out Biotope. I went there last week and saw them selling bees, cherry, yamatos, mosquito. However, the price will be slightly higher unless u buy more. U may wanna ring up b4 proceeding down.

    Cheers!

    apparently mosquito and rocket are different. again the use of common names creates confusion. what is known as mosquito shrimp is known as Palaemon scarletti. I posted a picture in another thread. Some places such as the old Gen-X in Clementi also called this shrimp rocket shrimp but according to another member he bought "rocket shrimps" and these get to be 8cm in size.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    have no idea what people calls rocket shrimp, but in a recent thread I posted pics of the mosquito shrimp (Palaemon scarletti) which some people also calls rocket.

    Hey, I found Mosquito shrimp near Tiong Bahru Market. I don't know the shop name. Just go up from Tiong Bahru MRT and turn left, walk all the way to the police post and find the fish shop.
