$200 a shrimp? First time I think I'd ever pay it.

When can you get these for us?!?!?

And I would assume these would be easier to keep than the blue Caridina shrimp species.

Why so expensive, I want so bad

Hope I'm not derailing the thread, but I have to say not all Neos are as easy as cherry nowadays.

You guys are correct but I'm saying this because I know Chocolates are damn near impossible to kill , and they came from Chocolates.

I will get them next year when they are coming out of ur ears! Lol!

Hey nick, do you mind PMing me your shrimp sales thread? I have a friend (Sumer koba) that is ready to get bugs, and I think I will get a few crystals to mix in their dna.

Thanks!


A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!

That's my plan too. They'll be in my new Mr. Aqua tank I'm putting together.

I will own some of these eventually. Once there are more on the market and the price comes down a little. I can technically afford a couple $200 shrimp, but I know I shouldn't lol.

Like any other Neo, these will pop out babies that range between a strip of color spectrum. Some may be dark blue, black, and even dark brown like a high grade Chocolate.

Check out these iPhone videos I shot this morning:
