selling/unloading Blue velvets (NYC pick up)

EDIT: ALL PENDING

They're originally from Speedie and are actually !LIGHT! blue, like this smiley face: (edit...the smiley face isn't blue...) I have another pile already, even after unloading a bunch at the swapmeet. Feel free to come by. I'm uptown off the 6 train in Manhattan.

I'm trying to get them all out of my tank so I can move my Blue Pearls in. They're juvies and younger at this point. You'll get at least 10, depending on how many people are interested. I asked 5$ for them at the swapmeet and I donate this money to my daughter's classroom for supplies so feel free to give more if you like (thank youuuu!). Otherwise negotiable. I'm usually just happy that they're going to a good home.

Oh lord no, not 5$/ea haha! ~5$ donation for at least 10 shrimp. Chances are, one of these folks I've been giving them out to will have a million in a month or so, so I'm sure they'll show up at another swapmeet!

jimmy, they will interbreed because they're the same species. Both types are Neocardina heteropoda so unless you want wilds...

ryu1 and acitydweller have first dibs. If one of you want to stop by or the next time I'm in Queens...

ekimf, you want MORE?? LOL and thanks for your previous donation!!!

Keep in mind that these are LIGHT blue! Like the background of this forum. And it sounds like they're not coloring up for anyone else either.

Jimmy you could keep em with your sakuras, but if they interbreed you'll get some rili shrimp so red shrimp with transparency.
