Can you share what has/hasn't worked for you, or any observations? I'm interested in these too.

Haha I remember when I was there and asked you about the zebras and there was a moment of "why the hell haven't I gotten them", my wish came true now I need to snag some before the masses.

What is considered "REALLY reasonably priced?"

I've been looking. For a while

Well, they will reflect my other prices, lol. Won't be more than $4 each

I have to sit down with my freight and price lists. I dont' do that until I am ready to make a sale thread. I charge a "formula" over what things cost me. I dont' generally base things on market value, but what I needto make to be able to continue what I am doing.

So the sakuras you have listed for sale now are lower grade than the new ones?

Only 50. I have put in an order for 150 more, but it will take some time

The ones I have currently listed are sakura (dark bodies, soem visible saddling, striped legs). the new ones that came in (different tank) have opaque bodies and solid legs.

Right now I have 3 tanks of different grades of cherry shrimp.

Wow! I didn't realize just how "micro" those crabs really are. 1/2" full grown, really? I don't have anywhere I could house them.
