Default Buying live ghost shrimp

Hi!

Does anyone in the UK know where to buy live ghost shrimp online? I'm trying to find a couple to pop in the tank ready for Ron's arrival, so he can gobble them up but I can't seem to find any, anywhere!!

Help would be appreciated!

Cheers, Mike.

Not seen ghost shrimp, but you can get cherry shrimp on ebay, which is sent next day delivery (around 20 for 15 I think).

The shrimp would need to be kept in a quarantine tank for 30 days though, prior to introducing to your axie tank, so you can keep an eye on them for parasites or unusual behavior or any other nasties.

Also make sure that you feed them well before you put them in the tank with your axie, sometimes shrimp have been known to "pick" at a stationary animal when there isn't a lot of scavenging in the tank. An adult axie should be okay though. Cheers-

If I know anything about axies, they poo enough and are messy enough to keep some ghost shrimp busy for days. (that is, though, if ghost shrimp eat detritus, but I think they feed on algae?)
