Looking for a Mantis in Canada


New member
Does anyone know where I could find a Mantis shrimp in Canada? Shipping livestock across the border is way too expensive...

I'm looking for N. wennerae in particular, or any other smaller, colourful, and hardy type of Mantis.
Yeah, I already tried JL Aquatics. No luck.

aquariumillusions.com in Edmonton can sometimes special order them in, but I think they only get the Peacock Mantis. Same with a couple local home businesses, AFAIK.

canreef.com is a new one for me. Thanks for the link!
Aha! I found a small Mantis for $15 locally. It was worth the wait. I think it's a G. smithii, which is perfect for my tank.
