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.
