If you think that's tall, check out the 6.6. It's the same footprin but taller. Pretty hard to scape. Good tanks though

i love the footprint cause i am putting it on my desk where my 2.5 use to be. It takes up about the same space, but double the volume! =D

Red Fire/cherry shrimp sale?? MA/RI area

I have tons of cherry shrimp ready to go to a new home and gobble up all your algae keeping plants nice and healthy!! I have a few fire reds but those are limited right now! ONLY $2.00 each!! This picture was taken yesterday grazing on the freshly cut HC Lawn!! I have cherrys & lots and lots more babies these shrimp will not stop breeding even the young juveniles are becoming berried sooner due to the recent addition of Indian almond leaves!! I put one in my daughters 10Gallon tank with a few Ghosts and 1 betta we have had these ghosts since we bought the pregnant females over a year ago! Only after adding the leaf did we finally have a ghost shrimp become berried!! Which is odd and I wasnt trying but thats how good these leaves work! Its like Viagra for shrimp!!! I will include for those who ask a free large leaf that can be broken into 4ths its that big! Also breed Crystal red shrimp and golden bees but those are a bit more money! Ask for pictures I have high grades and lower but nothing really lower then s grades...

Local Clubs

Hi All,

I know this post is older but was wondering if there are any clubs in Massachusetts for people interested in dwarf freshwater shrimp?

Thanks!

I dont know of any local clubs for shrimp but I have found a couple solid local sellers recently. There seems to be a few MA folks on here interested in shrimp as well.

What local sellers are you referring to? I'm always looking for new places to visit and check out.
