For that price range, you can get 10 Painted Fire Reds (selectively bred super red RCS) from Jimko for just $18, shipping included.

Jimko's PFR are the highest quality I've come across and he's a great guy to deal with!

Hey guys. I do have some berried RCS that are going to pop soon...hopefully. I'll keep you guys in the loop. I wouldn't mind getting rid of some later down the road.

Looks like you and combswillie may have a couple of takers . I'm looking to buy or RAOK here in LV as well, just waiting for my tank parameters to settle down... So after Vermino gets his choice, count me in, too!

P.S. I don't mean to hijack, just keep the thread going and say "me, too!"

I just want to make sure my Betta does alright with (adult) shrimp. If not, that's means I'm investing into a 12 gallon long and play with red cherry. Yeah, personally don't want to pay like $40-50 on shipping for livestock. I just did that with plants from AZgardens and that was BRUTAL (baby tears, DHG, flame moss, and some other plant which was supposed to be dwarf saggiterias)

It's just sad we dont have a very active community here in vegas. I would love to get into the shrimp hobby (get some CRS's one day) but who knows if I could be like Priapus or the Reaper

yes, i would've loved to find some buddies when my tank was thriving. it got a little out of hand when i relocated 7 times within the year lol. but we should all have a get together monthly once everyone knows one another. we could trade plants and shrimps ect.

i had a betta with my shrimps and let me tell you now, he will harrass the shrimp to no end. especially during feeding time. after placing my betta into the tank, the shrimp went into hiding most of the time. i had a colony of about 150+ in my 20 gal and i saw around 20 out in the open. i would suggest finding a small home for your betta =).
