 Hi  all,
 
 I  came  across  lots  of  sellers  on  ebay  US  who  ship  loads  of  live  animals.Unfortunately(and  fortunately)  i  do  not  live  in  the  USA  Sad  
 I  need  to  buy  some  shrimp  for  my  shrimp  setup.The  LFS  sells  some  sort  of  crayfish  calling  it  a  red  shrimp,and  local  river  shrimp  as  amano  "prawns".He  will  certainly  never  get  any  quality  shrimp.
 So  i  had  to  go  online...
 I  came  across  makemyhobby.com,by  far  the  only  place  where  they  claim  to  ship  live  animals  in  india.They  are  offering  many  shrimps(but  not  RCS,which  i  wanted  badly)  quite  cheap,i  guess.
 Is  this  website  reliable?
 did  anyone  get  anything  from  it?
 
 Also  is  there  any  other  place  or  method,i  could  acquire  some  good  shrimp  and  snails?

 Hi  Ashwin,
 
 Request  you  to  update  your  location  details.
 
 Coming  to  your  topic,  RCS  are  easily  available  every  where  India.  May  be  not  your  LFS  but  with  most  of  the  hobbyists  here.  
 
 What  type  of  snails  are  you  looking  for.  Some  of  the  snails  that  are  available  are  assassins,  different  types  of  nerite  snails  ect.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 I  did  check  up  all  the  negative  feedbacks  for  the  website,but  all  those  are  from  2010.Who  knows...maybe  they  hired  a  new  manager  or  somthing?  Very Happy  
 anyways,  is  this  website
 www.modernpetcentre.in
 reliable?
 and  if  not  from  these  stores..any  other  way  i  could  source  my  crawlers?

 It  seems  there  isnt  any  reliable  online  source  of  livestock  in  india.I  browsed  all  over  the  internet,just  came  across  makemyhobby.
 This  leaves  me  with  only  one  option,I  should  shift  to  the  US  :grin:
 
 Kidding..I  have  a  relative  in  pune  and  friends  in  mumbai,will  they  able  to  send  the  shrimps  to  me  by  any  means  apart  from  getting  them  themselves?

 This  is  something  your  relatives  should  be  answering  and  not  us  out  here.  
 
 Check  with  them  if  they  can  ship  (airways,  roadways)  them  to  you?

 Surya

 Ashwin,  please  stop  with  your  damn  attitude.  I  gave  my  2  cents  of  advice  so  that  you  get  the  your  shrimps  without  having  a  bad  transaction.  Other  wise  it  does  not  matter  to  me  where  you  get  them  or  from  whom  you  get  them.
 
 Anyways,  coming  to  the  query,  if  it  wasnt  feasible,  I  wouldnt  have  advised  you  on  the  shipping  part.
 
 Just  that  the  person  packing  the  live  shrimps  should  know  how  to  pack  them.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Peace  man!
 I  wasnt  going  on  the  attitude  way,sorry  if  it  seemed.(maybe  i  should  have  added  smileys  before)
   Smile  
 i  have  bought  tons  of  fish  from  kolkata  in  the  past  years,but  they  were  in  wholesale  quantities  and  i  bot  them  with  me  in  the  ac  compartment  so  was  able  to  superwise  personally.I  jst  dont  know  if  the  shipping  facilities  are  good  enough  for  livestock,i  mean  they'll  say  anything  for  business.Nor  is  my  friend  at  mumbai  into  the  hobby.
 
 Peace
   Very Happy

 It  is  simple,  if  you  are  picking  the  live  stock  from  any  reputed  dealer,  then  they  would  arrive  fine  and  if  it  done  by  your  relatives,  then  you  could  suggest  them  to  have  them  oxygen  packed  at  the  nearest  LFS,  pack  them  in  a  cardboard  box,  and  ship  them  to  you.  Cover  all  the  6  sides  of  the  box  with  Styrofoam  sheets  and  place  air  bags  (Packing  bags  for  fish)  to  close  any  empty  spaces.  Styrofoam  will  regulate  the  temperature  and  the  air  bags  will  hold  the  live  stock  bags  in  place.
 
 Please  check  on  shipping  details  and  the  time  of  the  year  the  live  stock  is  shipped  because  most  of  the  fish  &  shrimps  would  survive  a  maximum  of  2-3  days  of  travel  (may  be  more  in  some  cases),  if  packed  well.
 
 I  would  also  suggest  you  to  post  your  requirements  in  WTB  section  with  shipping  request  to  your  place.  Any  hobbyists  out  here  who  can  help  you  with  your  requirements  and  are  closer  to  your  location  will  respond  to  you,  through  PM's.  You  could  then  choose  to  go  ahead  with  them  or  not.  
 
 Note:  This  is  just  an  option  and  me  or  IAH  will  not  be  responsible  for  any  deals  that  does  not  go  well.
 
 Hope  this  helps.
 
 Regards,
 Surya
