Last time I was at 123 they also had senegals, delhezis and endlis (all pretty small). There's also a pretty big (~8") lapradei at my local petland discounts in Kingsbridge.

So I visited the 14st Petco today and saw they had these blue and yellow shrimps. Though it didn't look like the shrimp were very healthy, the blue shrimps were VERY blue. Does anyone know what their price and name is? I don't think they were listed on their price lists.

Not trying to be a wiseguy or anything, but why don't you ask these questions of someone who works in Petco?

They're probably what Petco calls blueberry shrimp (a Neocaridina) and the price is around $4 each. I bought some about a year and a half ago and the color faded.

By the way, if you lift the front cover of the 14th Street Petco tanks, there are price labels on the back of the tanks. They're usually more accurate then the labels put up front for the customers (go figure!).

I think both are Caridinia baubalti... they dont interbreed with neos. The petco workers at 14th street have no idea what they are... and usually cant tell them apart if they're dark enough. lol...

and to the other question... yes they are CPOs...

That is all I remember..they got some more redmoor root DW, looks really nice but pieces worth seeing at $75+
