    Where do you recomend getting shrimp from?

    Hey all,
    So I want to set up a planted tank for Neocaridina shrimp and some nano fish (and probably a few snails). I want to do Blue Dream shrimp, and was wondering where people would recommend getting shrimp from? Some places I was considering were:

    buypetshrimp.com
    billyboiaquatics.com
    buceplants.com

    or possibly Nolan's Aquarium (it's not very close to me, but might be worth the drive to avoid shipping)

    Does anyone have experience ordering from these places? Is there somewhere else people would recommend? I'm in LA, near Highland Park. Are there local breeders/hobbyists who might have some? Please let me know!

    Like we mentioned in another post, contact Ben Le on FB. He is located in Garden Grove. I picked up some in person. He has Neos, Caridinias and Sulawesi. Great price as well since he is trying to shutdown his operation.

    He can ship it as well.

    I too live in NELA area like and make a point to drive to LFS where I can to support their business. You also have several fish store in LA area that has a decent selection of shrimps. The two stores that I frequent is CK Fish World (West Covina) and Bobʻs Tropical Fish (East La/Monterey Park). They both can get what you need. Of course there are plenty of on-line sources as well and in this forum where you can purchase from members.
