Helping finding feeder shrimp

I need help finding saltwater feeder shrimp

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...fm?pCatId=2191

My LFS stopped selling the shrimp and liveaquaria never seems to have them they e-mail when they do but the time I get the e-mail they are sold just my luck LOL. Can anyone help finding a place where I can buy them online.

Thanks Rob

Saltwaterfish.com is a pretty reputable name. They aren't in stock at the moment, but perhaps they will be soon.

FWIW when you factor in shipping, that is going to be an awful lot of $$ spent on food. What are you using them for?

I'm using them to feed my puffer, I use to buy them at my LFS but they don't for what ever reason sell them any more. HE loves to chace them around and I heard that they are good for his beak.

I agree with Mike that by the timer you add the shipping charge that they are preety experience. Have you tried feeding krill.

Yes I have, it was freeze dried krill but I need to get more, I have to hold it while he eats or it just goes into the filter.

I agree live food would be an excellent treat for the puffer, but as a primary food source it is a little too costly IMO. Besides krill you could try fresh, raw, seafood such as shrimp, and other meaty items, from the grocery store. Many people use fresh seafood to make their own frozen food(ie blender mush). A feeding stick may be a good investment as well. I don't have any experience w/ aggressive fish, but I imagine a puffer bite would be pretty nasty, depending on the size. HTH

Try fresh seafood but soak in a few different vitamin "enhancers" like zoe or selcon (there are thers like selcor or vita-chem) I also soak mine in garlic guard.

Thanks for all the advice I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future and it's nice to know that there are people out there to help.
