Skunk Cleaner Shrimp A++++, go to Something Fishy in Scehenctady, $19.99. I also like Fire Shrimp, but dont have any experience with them. I wouldnt get anything else. You will probaby only be able to put 1-2 skunks, so its probably not worth ordering off line, unless your ordering a bunch of other livestock.

If your only gonna order 1 shrimp, the cost for shipping would be ridiculous, there is a store In Schenectady NY, called "Something Fishy". They Sell cleaner shrimp there for 19.99. There is also a place called "Union Aquarium" also in Schenectady that sells them i beleive for $25. Ill PM you there locations.

I like my skunk. Just be careful if you get any livestock that require diretly hand feed large peices of food like krill, for example open brain coral. They tend to steal food and can be quite a hassle. But on the other hand they are great scavengers. If I feed my fish pellets, and the pellets hit the ground quick, my shrimp is right there to pick it up so I don't worry about any uneaten food as much now- I somewhat indierctly feed the shrimp when I feed my fish.

And if you can buy a smaller size get it. I bought mine close to two months ago at a small size for about $15. With regular eating and regular molting(about once every three weeks) he will get big in no time. Or in my case a she because I just saw the eggs for the first time today!! She has molted about 4 times now and is probably worth the $40 price tag at the lfs I bought her at. So with a little patience, I was able to save $25...not too bad of an investment.

on a side note funny story. I tried to feed my toadstool microvert one day through a turkeybaster and my shrimp went nuts. She jumped onto the toadstool and starting picking her hands into the baster trying to eat it. M toadstool didn't like it but got ver it eventually.

my lfs is about a 40 minute drive.

www.thatpetplace.com is thier website though. They are a respectable company and they have some of the lowest prices on aquarium supplies i've managed to find so far. I would order online from them but I don't really need to since I can just drive. I have thier brochure and they even give discounts if you buy 3 or more of an item.

Just PM me first if you plan to get fish from them. There are some things you might need to know first. Just so you can be an 'informed customer.'
