How much did you pay for amano (Yamato) shrimps

I was thinking about getting some shrimp for my aquarium but was surprised to find at my LFS they are £2.50 each. Is this comparable to elsewhere? Does anyone know good uk mail-order shops for shrimps?

Thanks

That is about what I paid in the US (after conversion). They are pricey little suckers... but they are hardy, and will live awhile (seem to have much longer life spans than most FW shrimp). They won't breed though in your tank (they need brackish water for that) so that is a down side.

Thanks for the info...

How many would you get for a 120L tall tank? I was planning on 15 until I saw the price!
