    Hi Mandrin,

    I am also looking for one of these, I have searched high and low. I wont lie, they are going to be tough to find. I remember in the later months of last year they were everywhere.

    I will let you know if I find some.

    Thanks,
    Lance

    Do you think a peppermint shrimp will be able to deal with a pressure change like that?

    yeah livestock can be mailed no problem. Remember they spend hours in little plastic bags when coming to SA. Just research peppermint shrimps a bit so you know how to spot a real one. I have seen many shops selling camel shrimps as peppermint shrimps, they do look similar and one can make mistakes :) .. Camel shrimps will eat your coral

    If you struggling I'll keep an ear on the ground and if the shops don't want to ship I'll do the shipping for you - I have shipped FW Discusfish to and from CT in the past
