The daphnia don't have much meat. Maybe no one will notice. lol
Bamboo shrimp that I've seen (I live in Portland, Oregon) vary in pricing. I've seen as much as $12.99 at one lfs. I also just saw ones for $6.99 each at a Petco in Vancouver WA. I did find mine at a small fish store for I think $6.99 or $8.99. I brought them home and within an hour they turned from drab brown/gray to a brilliant orange and have stayed that way. I wasn't so impressed with the Petco shrimp, but I've noticed fish/shrimp/snails becoming brilliantly beautiful when they're in a good environment getting a wide variety of foods. So you never know.
My bamboo shrimp sit on one of my big plants right in the outflow of the filter. Since they're filter feeders, they do best in a well established tank because they need to catch very small particles of matter in their little feathery hands.
