LFS's With Shrimp

Anyone know if there are any stores in the Tampa area that sell any other types of shrimp other than ghost shrimp or cherry shrimp?

Thanks!

Which stores have cherry shrimp? I am having a hard time finding anyone that sells them locally.

I breed cherry shrimp and also sell them if you are interested. Just let me know. I'm just trying to broaden my experience and get some other types of shrimps. I have been successful at breeding whisker shrimp but just can't ever get them to fully grow as my fish get to the before they are big enough to catch

Marine Warehouse occasionally has cherry shrimp from time to time.

Locally I've found all you're gonna get is ghost shrimp or very overpriced cherry shrimp

Jeden I've got some shrimp projects going right now but it may be a while when/if I get them breeding I'll be posting here in the forums I know it's not much right now but it's something for the future Right now I have a PFR tank and a Wild Type Tank and I will be setting up a CRS tank and one other shrimp tank within the next month-2 months

Marine Warehouse gets their shrimp from me haha. And yes, they are pricey there.

Hey it's a start! I'll take what I can get!

I had a feeling it would be a TPT member that was supplying with them, I just feel bad that they put them into that tiny little fish bowl by the plants and then charge 3-4 bucks a pop for them

Haha they sell them pretty quick as I have to bring them in weekly. They dropped a dollar each earlier this Summerside helped them out a bit. Let me know if you ever need any!
