    I will definately go back again to Big Als at Montreal.... Wow... I mean... they have a s*itload of stuff ^_^... So, last evening, I went and couldn't resist... had to buy some new stuff and they happen to had some neat Amano shrimps at cheap price and good ghost shrimp size/price... so on the paper, I write down : 6 Amano (for 11.99$can) and 10 ghost (for 5.99$can)... so I was expecting to have the right quantity.... but .... well, when I got home... what have I notice ? ... there were about 20 ghost... so I was kinda happy bout it... ^_^ heh free shrimp :D... and when I've checked the Amano.... instead of 6, there were about 12 or 15... I was "WOOT!".... they normally run at 5$ each here... so... I got like 15 MONSTER amano for 12$... that's barely 1.50$ each ! :D... I love Big Als !

    There's a Big Al's in Montreal? Cool, where is it?

    I'm heading down early next week and it'd be cool to look around.

    Nice score on the shrimp, we have some at the LFS at $2.50 each, but you get a discout if you buy lots (15% for 3, 20% for 6+).

    Yeah Ghost aren't expensive since they are mainly sold as feeder for bigger fishes... but they are just sooo great at cleaning and looking at when in a community tank :D...

    Thanks for the info. Don't think I'll have time to go there next week, but it's always good to know it's there.

    For the shrimps, they had:
    - Amano shrimp $2
    - Green shrimp $2.5
    - Green Rock Shrimp $4

    I bought the green shrimps. Six of them for $12, so they only cost about $2 each. So far so good, they're in the 10g and cleaning like mad. It's kinda funny, they're all sticking to the back wall of the aquarium. It's cool to see them "from the top" like that.
