That's good info, I've never been to either store. Both of you should consider joining GWAPA we have a lot of hard to find plants at great prices at our monthly auction, I hate to be a pest but it's a lot of fun so check out the website and introduce yourself it's free and annual membership is only $20.

It could have been as she is very knowledgeable and I'm sure she keeps some shrimp somewhere but mainly she's our Dutch tank specialist.

I think he's talking about Sarah. I don't sell shrimp.

I haven't seen any cherries the last couple times I was there. I will update the next time I go.

I got a few absolute beauties from Congressional Aquarium in Rockville a few months ago. They are very red and really should have been priced more than the $3 or so that they cost.

He just said she kept shrimp and he said you were a HOT employee and knowledgeable so you can't pass that off to Sara, get with it Franny!

I've looked at the stock when they had Cherry's in and there were more dead shrimp in the tank than alive, so I would buy online from someone you know can deliver live shrimp because what I've seen a HOT would survive the ride home. I will say that they have not been keeping shrimp long so there is a bit of a learning curve for the employees and it's been 3 or 4 months since I've been there so things could be better than I mentioned above.

If you want shrimp just send me a pm and I'll connect you with someone that will deliver live, healthy shrimp that you will have to kill on your own.
