Here's an online link to CRS > http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/...red-shrimp.php

Mass Pike West for about 16 miles gets you to Tropic Isle Aquarium, 4 Pierce St (just off Rt 9E), Framingham. They rarely have CRS but do have Cherry, Orange, Amano and a few other shrimp. Lots of plants, too. Very big in SW.

Skipton's / Unique Aquaria is down by Mass Ave, although I don't remember seeing any CRS there last time I was in. Jay's Aquatics in Salem NH had 2-3 CRS, but they were priced at about 2x what you can get from people on here / PlantedTank.net.

Hi,

also, I'm not sure how far you're willing to travel, but AquaLife in Providence has a lot of really nice plants, and occasionally get in CRS. They regularly have the Cherry shrimp, and tiger shrimp, too. If you call, you could probably ask them to order some CRS in for you.

Here's the website:

Tropic Isle (which Newt mentioned) is very good as well.

And, if you find yourself near Millis (Rt 109, west/southwest of Boston) you should definitely stop in to Ned's.

And, look in to joining the Boston Aquarium Society! There are increasing numbers of folks who keep planted tanks, and bring their cuttings and extras to meetings for the auctions.

Best of Luck!

Fyi: Unique aquaria recently moved to Woburn. There's also Lovely Pets in Quincy, but I've only seen cherry and amino shrimp there.

Would like to meet with others interested in aquatic plants, but I live in Vt. Have family in Scituate maybe make a weekend of it. What would be on the agenda? Plant swap? Mark

We'll have plant-talk, you can visit my tanks, of course, swaps if anyone wants, and if there is interest, I can give one of my talks... The attendees can decide whether and which one.
