    I know aquabid has some.
    Fish are people too, they just have gills.

    you can find them in the local waterways.... just gotta dig around in the muck for them.

    I've heard they usually don't do well in aquariums, they eat by filtering dirty water... most people like their aquariums to have clean water.

    Agree with JStrider. I had some for about a year, but without dirty water, they die a from slow starvation.

    Were you able to tell if they were dead or not? Cause it would suck if they died, you didn't know, and kept them in your tank for a long time. haha

    No problem knowing they are dead...the shell opens right up and all the little critters in my tank have a feast.
