Live Aquaria would be a decent place to start.
Yikes it looks like I am going to get hit pretty hard for shipping to Alaska.

Yes, any vendor will charge an arm and leg for shipping to alaska unfortunately. Do they do free shipping for bulk to alaska?

Shipping is spendy from any online vendor with marine unless you buy in bulk. Unfortunately that's just the nature given what they have to go through to help ensure it arrives alive. All part of the reason I stick to my LFS.

Yeah well the closest saltwater store is over 200 miles away from me.

Unfortunately, they are almost impossible to breed and raise yourself, unlike freshwater shrimp. It makes them expensive. It used to be common to see them for 19.99...now is seems like 30+ is more the norm, unless you are talking about peppermints and camels.

Good luck with the search. Maybe ORA or Biota or someone will start mass producing them some day.
