Depends on the source. Locally, if you pick up fiddlers at a wholesaler, they sell for about a dollar. If you have them delivered it costs more. So, 4 may be a little high, but not to bad considering the overhead that comes with a live animal to the public business.
I guess if your only buying one as a pet, my sister keeps one in a gallon tank on her nightstand, it would be o.k. to par 4 dollar's a crab... but when you need 4-10 or even more a month you have to either go strait to the source or find someone that doesn't have such a high overhead.
wow! you guys are getting raped on Fiddlers, lmao I bring them in to my store in the 100 lots at 0.04 cents each dime size! give or take a few cents per order. maybe i should be shipping these out to all of you, lmao you could make me rich. LMAO
Unfortunately, shipping to and from Canada is not likely to have high survival rates because of Customs. However, we often get requests from people in Canada looking for a food source and you would be doing them a huge favor by listing yourself as a supplier!
Sweet! I am just starting up a tank , and a source of live food available locally for reasonable price is awesome( whether i decide to keep a ceph or not)! I checked out your website from your forum profile. Will livestock be available to order through your website when it is fully up and running?
Anyway. Perhaps there will one day be a sticky with sources that have live food available for reasonable prices, like those for ceph and octopus availability..... ~*nudge* nudge* *wink* *wink*~
actually Mark, THIS IS the forum for that kind of post. Just start a new topic with something in the title about Fiddler Crabs for Sale in Canada and provide pricing and contact info. If it is not possible to ship live cross-provience, be sure and include the providences that are eligible in the title. Should Tony creates a sticky, I am sure he will move the post at that time (hint, hint). Canada has been a real problem for food (albeit our numbers there have been somewhat limited) since it is not viable to ship anything live through customs so a reliable local food source will be most welcomed.
