Selling Shrimp Local or in TN?

Hi there,

I am wondering if anyone in TN local or within a fast shipping difference is selling shrimp. Ideally we want to get a tank of RCS and maybe a type of blue shrimp that takes close to the same parameters as RCS. We found some on craigslist one time but haven't seen any listed since.

We love the idea of the shrimp that breed blue, red, clear, and yellow - malawa shrimp or granite tigers I think were the name of them.

We are very close to the NC border so even around Asheville would be almost as close as driving to Knoxville.

Our pet budget isn't very big so trying to save on shipping. Thanks for looking.

The Aquarium on Papermill Rd had some RCS last week.

They usually keep them, but for their prices plus tax you might do as well to buy online.

We looked at them at the Aquarium but they were 5 to 8 dollars a piece, depending on if they were on sale. They usually have RCS, yellow and a few colors of bees which can go up to 10.00/12.00 a piece. For that high of a price, the colors aren't that bright on them.

I love the aquarium but sometimes the prices are just outrageous.

On a side note, I can't wait to make it into Knoxville to see if Petsmart and Petco are selling plants!!

They always have the packaged plants. That's where some of mine came from. I believe they are grown emersed.
