Tibees and possibly some Taiwan bees if the prices will drop just a hair

Haha, I don't mind harder to keep shrimp, i just don't think CRS are as cute! Currently I have Blue Velvets, Blue/Green Rilis, and Sulawesi Malawa shrimps.
You should try some malawas! They are even easier to keep than neos.

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

I'm planning to redo my shrimp rack to tackle more challenging shrimps. Having learned a lot these past 3 years shrimping, and even more after visiting CrimsonHK, BenibachiHK, and Nigons in HK. I'm so rejuvenation!

I'm excited to redo my shrimp rack, this time around, incorporating everything I've learned and have worked for me. Gonna cost so much $$$, time, and energy, but also SO MUCH fun!

Few specifics for me:

1. Tibees
2. Taiwan Bees
3. Any type of tiger shrimp that has been kept in LOW PH water. Don't care what kind they are as long as they were born in low PH. Would like to drop these in my current CRS/CBS/Taiwan Bee tank to create some random mixes.

Thanks.

PS. If anybody knows where I can get some low PH tigers then shoot me a PM. Someone out there has to be keeping some....

Blasphemous as it might be, my first 2013 shrimp purchase is going to be ghost shrimp for my community tank. My last finally succumbed to old age and I miss having 'em around.

On the "good" shrimp side?

I need to catch all the culls to make it worth adding to my cherry colony. And since that's only gonna' happen by breaking down the tank for a full re-scape, it's gonna be awhile! Once it does, my two FPR females will get some desperately needed high class company.

My neo. propinqua tank need revitalizing. Love orange shrimp and it's nice having something that doesn't breed me out of house and home.

On the new shrimp front--I'm working on two lines from my existing neos. One's throwing some interesting blues, the other is completely colorless. No real point, just fun. Keeps me busy while I figure out tank space for other folks' shrimp: crs (if only to prove my shrimp cred), chocolate neos and either black bee or tiger shrimp. Would love to find space for some of the amazing deep blue forms that are out there--but doesn't look like it's gonna happen this year.

We agree on that point too, LOL. OEBT are the only ones that stand out enough to potentially be worth the hassle for me. I enjoy looking at things like blue bolts, discus, erios, and tonina but...
