I, too, lusted after a few of these pretty little critters, but was
unwilling to underwrite the cost of shipment from the on-line suppliers.
So, on a chance, I called Skipton's, one of several LFS's in the Boston
area, and asked if they could order some.  They called me back the next
day and said that they'd ordered a box of 100, which will be here next
week.  They also said the price would be $4 apiece, which is the same
price as at Frank's Aquarium -- but with no shipping charge.  So, you
might try to see if a local LFS will do the same.
