If you are willing to pay shipping I might be able to help you out. I purchased 5 last weekend(tiny little guys)... I got them from a fish store at my girlfriends parents house(about 8 hours away). I will be back in the area either right before or right after christmas. If you want I can pick you up some. They were around 1.90 a piece I believe.
Thats a good price my employer sells for like $6.99 and we have good prices.
If you cant get them for her I will
The shipping wouldent be so bad those things dont need much water but will need a heat pack.
