New (to me anyway) orange dwarf crays

Got a pair off aquabid, they arrived today. They look a lot more orange in person...and they are tiny! Only an inch or so long, like the 3 CPDs they are sharing the tank with (thanks Ebichua!)

Lol only? Too steep a price for me to afford. Are you going to breed them?

Kinda steep for me, too, but I would have probably had to pay $20-25 for just the RCS, so tacking on another 15-20 for the crays wasn't a bad deal in my mind. But I am spending way too much considering I just have 2 5g tanks.

I might try to breed them at some point, or they may take that decision out of my hands.

They look really cool! Good luck breeding them if you do!
