In the past three days I've gotten all kinds of private messages from people asking about bacterial infections. That's on top of all of the recent threads. And one thing is a constant, unfortunately: the supplier of shrimp. They're selling shrimp that haven't been quarantined and are spreading bacterial infections all over the place.
So I just want to remind folks who may be reading this to gauge your seller well before making a purchase. Take time to get to know them and make sure they're legit before you plop down $20-$50 on a single shrimp. If you don't know them on Aquabid? Don't throw your money away. Don't know them on TPT beyond a feedback score? Don't risk it. Know who you're buying from, what their practices are, how they care for their livestock before selling to you. You'll thank yourself.
This isn't to name names or harm anybody, as there are obviously terrific sellers here on TPT. Just please be sure the seller you choose reliable so these bacterial scares are rare.
