I only have one in a 125g tank, though I do have some peppermints in there too.

Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp Origin: Indo-Pacific, Sri Lanka
So why does liveaquaria have them for $14.99 US now and they cost 5 times that there?

Are you *sure* it's a skunk cleaner shrimp we're talking about? Like cmor mentioned... unless you have a LFS that is trying to take you to the cleaners, that just doesn't make sense. I mean... I surfed to some of the online shops I found in Australia, and while I couldn't find a skunk cleaner listed, their peppermints and coral banded shrimp were selling for $15-$25 AUD.

Well... I guess if I could sell them for that amount, I wouldn't change my pricing either! Wowsers.

You will only need 1 but i have 2 because i had an ich problem. For that price i would just buy one. If you get money you should buy 2 and put them in a nice set up with no mechanical filtration and no coral so you can breed them and become rich!!! P.S mine breed

Cleaner shrimp will not remove ich! Ich buries itself under the skin of a fish and the shrimp can't get to it. This is an old rumor that has no merit.

I have just one in my 29 and i think he is happy. He follows me around the room and cleans my cuts (most I didn't know I had). Will Drfostersandsmith.com deliver to australia? They have them.
Saltwater Aquarium Shrimps for Marine Reef Aquariums: Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
OK so while looking at that I found they do not ship to australia. Most other sites I looked at did not either. That might be the reason for the cost.

Yeah no one in America ships to Australia. It's just such a pain with livestock. Ahh well, I'll be right. Found out today on a LFS visit that Royal Grammas, (One of the fish I intend to get) cost $140. Yay.
