Thanks! Yes I have golden's that carry the Crystal red gene which is why I think the babies are such high grade's I have actually gotten a few snow whites!! I started with ONE black what I thought was a low grade original black bee shrimp It had to have been a mix of wild tangerine tiger + wild bee crossed based on the babies I have gotten plus the eyes on a few babies & a certain new "red bolt" baby have ORANGE EYES! So who knows what this ONE lonely CBS or whatever it is and may have been crossed with?? I even have recently started seeing babies that look like "Red Pinto" or "red wine" So maybe it was a Mischling?//.......... I am about 20-45 Min. from RI depending on which part?

Probably looking for 20. I was gonna group them in sets of 10 in two different tanks.

Sounds Good & You found them! Well that is a good idea to separate them into 2 separate grades. Or are they set up tanks with fish?

I have a shrimp bowl with just a couple tangerines in there. And my 20 gallon has some bronze corys and mollies in it. But its decently planted.

Well the corys wont bother them however the mollies will wait till they molt and are vulnerable and gobble! So it is always a good idea to keep shrimp with PLANTS duh haha....Some plants are so delicate the only way to keep them nice and algae free is with shrimp!! They are the best I have put Indian almond leaves in my tank and they are breeding so fast even younger! I have a few juveniles already berried!! so if you breed or just want to keep the water free of harmful bacteria that can harm the shrimp if you treat with normal med. I highly recommend these leaves!!! So When did you want them? I would like to get rid of them soon because as I said they are all berried or about to be because there saddles are very visible and the babies are way to small at the moment but you will probably end up with a few already berried so you got lucky OHH and I also have a few orange red looking ones that may be able to make babies with ur tangerines? lol well the leaf is actually a good idea to keep in those bowls too!!
