getting back into shrimp, whats new?

so I haven't been on these forums for a long while since my shrimp tank died off. eventually it was just too much to try to start again in terms of getting good quality things. I started keeping tarantulas which are much less and and less expensive but now that I've become more independent, I want to start with shrimp again. so what all kinds of shrimp have come into the market while I was away? looking to start with some kind of newer Neo. I remember blue rilis., pumpkins, chocolates, and orange sakuras were pricey the last time I was on here. what's the price for neos now? what's new with the invert world?

Chocolates are around $10 and lower
Oranges are ~$3
Blue Rilis are ~$3-4

Pure Red Line (PRL) CRS are the new big things.
TB's are popular and get to around $35 for the cheapest ones.

When I first got into the hobby Cherries were 5-6 dollars a piece.

That's how made all my money in college.

It seems cherries have been going blue crazy. Some may even be the same, but some blue names: Blue Jelly, Blue Rili, Blue Velvet, etc.

Makes it very confusing when colors look the same. LOL

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
