I'll have some available March 1st They've been holding up well. They're still young and not fully colored up yet. They're such neat little fish. I've been keeping them for about 4 years now. They are a bit shy (and really hard to photograph). But it's fun to watch the males display and they're fairly easy to breed in, even in small tanks. I started with a trio in a 3 gallon tank and currently have close to 20 in my personal stock.

I have a planted 25g that is nearly cycled. Beginning of March is perfect timing. I first saw some of these fish in a planted nano and have wanted a school ever since. Hope I am able to grab some.

Yup, all the imports will be available for sale March 1st. I want them all to have a good long quarantine time, so that I know I'm not sending out sick or stressed shrimp/fish.

I might, actually. His red is a lot more intense in person than in that pic. Like all great shrimp, he does not cooperate at photo time
