Next year I'll be wanting some red cherry shrimp .. I don't have the tank set up yet. I don't want to get them from a store, I'd rather just get 5-10 from a breeder. I wouldn't mind trying some other hardy types, but I'm not really looking for crystals.

BTW I'm on Westside of PDX

Ya most of s-ss but some low grades and some sss. The white varies from someone clear to pretty solid.

Im not sure I understand what you are asking? If you are asking if the white fades over time, no I dont believe that it does.
