$5 for crystal shrimp I think. The Crystal shrimp where about a B-C grade like the ones on this http://www.petshrimp.com/crystalredshrimp.html. The Bee shrimp lookd pretty good I didnt pay that much attention to the shrimp.

I'm going to be up in Long Beach tomorrow and I plan on stopping by that fish store. Hope the shrimp are still available. I've been looking for bees.

Well I am a big fan of this store and I will be stopping in weekly to check out what's new. Kirt is a great guy, very friendly, and helpful. I really love the fact that he carries fish that you just don't see in other stores, such as Gooboo gudgeons, wild livebearers, Apistogrammas, just to name a few. He's also willing to look for something if he doesn't have it and has some great sources at hand to do so. If you are in the area or even if you are not you owe it to yourself to pay a visit.

I picked some shrimp and fish pellets up yesterday. As for shrimp he had in there were amanos, rednose, crystal reds (C grade for those that are so concerned over such a thing), cherries, might have been some bees, another shrimp I've never seen before that I pointed out to Kirt, seems they were mixed in with the amanos and looked like a Neocaridina sp., rainbows, and bamboo shrimp.

As a reminder he gets new stuff in on either Mondays or Wednesdays.

I was in his store earlier yesterday (tuesday) and found it wonderful! I bought some of those C grade CRS (they look fine to me and I took some pics to show, once I dl them) and 2 rednosed shrimps. These shrimp went for $5.99 each. Great customer service! I was also surprised to see the variety of those atypical LFS fish. You can tell they care for their critters. I was disappointed to find out that "someone" (I was told a fellow member of Scape and reg. customer) had bought all the bees! I looking forward to buying some! -hands on hips/tapping foot- LOL I'll just have to try next time...even though it's about a 2 hour drive for me to get there.

I also recommend this LFS, even if it is quite a drive. I was lucky enough to be in the neighborhood and glad I took the opportunity to visit.

Thanks Mike! When I get the chance I want to check out AW to see what kind of inverts they carry. I really want to get my hands on some bees. It's a shame that it's so difficult to find LFS locally who carry the variety of inverts we crave to own.
