    Well I am going to try this again. I think I found a source for Peppermint Shrimp (wont know for sure til the beginning of the week) These will be medium size and I will have some extras available at $4 each. Please add to this post if you think you want some and include how many you think you want (this way I can increase my order asap if needed) My fingers are crossed that this will happen!
    Cheers! Mark

    @ashburn2k - 4

    Where are you located again? Trying to decide if it's worth the drive just to see how long they last with my Hawkfish. Also have you verified they will be Lysmata wurdemanni and not one of the other "peppermint" species that don't eat Aptasia?

    They are "aptasia eating variety"

    Peppermint shrimp get along in groups, right? I have one big Caribbean one now and since I have no aiptasia he eats bits of fish/mysis. Is this normal for p shrimp? They will not starve without nems to eat?

    I think they are ok in groups and eat whatever they can find
    If we can get this order fulfilled, Peter would like to donate a pair to your class tank:)

    Well, that is thoughtful and appreciated! Peter could name them, too. My students will be envious of his tanks. I would actually like to buy some shrimp to have 8 total because they will add some fun to our tanks lacking fish and other inverts, plus there is aiptasia in a very old tank at my MIL's.

    I would like 3 please. Thank you for organizing this Mark!

    Bruce, Maureen, and I live near each other in the Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill area so maybe we can carpool them home depending on when they come in.

    I can drop yours off or bring them to Walnut Creek if this goes through. I'm in Redwood City for lunch once every week to ten days anyway and can adjust my day accordingly.

    Good News - He say he will ship them but it will be a couple of weeks. (probably about the same time as the meet up in Oakland) Still time to adjust orders.
    Cheers! Mark
