That's why the local fish stores started buying from me because I bring in the bright reds. They've stated they are the best shrimps they've ever sold from their stores and have ceased all orders from their suppliers. That's the sole purpose of my 27 gal cube is for breeding them but also giving me the chance to work on my aquascaping techniques/skills. So the stores give me store credit and I buy my supplies with it. I can't tell you the last time I've paid out of pocket for aquarium supplies or equipment.
