there are only 2 people i get oebt from and one wont be selling any untill the spring. and when it comes to shirmp you truly do get what you pay for. so going cheep is not a good idea you will either get small shrimp that will take 6-8 months or sick shrimp. dont skimp on the quality. and the pic in that auction you posted is a general one if you search images on google so i would deff ask for a lot more pics before thinking about gettin from that guy
Seems I see more and more people selling oebts that are clearish looking than actual blue. Does this have to do with environment?
I believe so, I have some from Speedie in a tank that has been ignored and they turned different colour (some got very light blue, some got darker, one even got purple, it's my fault as I have ignored that tank, not the source). They were all very nice/even blue for at least a month or so after I got them. Environment and age definitely play some roles.
