|MoeBetta||Pm sent. And I've got well north of 100 in a 5 gallon and who knows in the other tanks.|

|MoeBetta||Look up Joe dirt on gcas, I looked the other day and he's selling them very cheap.|

|Euphoria||If they breed like rabbits I dont think I want as many as it would take to pay for gas from dayton. Thank you very much though!!!!|

I say keep them all! Especially the fire/Taiwan reds. You'll fall in love with them for sure and they're super-hardy.

I've got a bunch up here in Dayton, ill meet you halfway at a dollar each, you know. Provided you want enough to pay for the gas. There's also a guy near the cinci Indiana border on gcas that goes by joedirt that was always selling them.

|cmabrey75||I have about 40 blue pearl in a 5 gallon. I started out with 6 about 3 or 4 months ago. They breed like rabbits, cherries and blue pearls both do. Dont let them breed together or you just get what the wild ones look like. Clear and nothing special. You will be fine putting them in a five gallon tank.|

I've been warned that S'es are low-grade S, and told that the A's are high A's so if that is true, then I'm not too worried about an A+ three band sullying the S- three bands.
Now I either need to decide if I want to keep the 25 blues or the 10 red cherries. If my kids see them both and fall in love with them both, then I guess I could setup the old 5 gallon aqaurium my son used for his betta just for the cherries. Otherwise, Euphoria I might have 10 "Taiwan Fire Shrimp" available in Lexington as soon as they arrive.
I suppose a 5G could tolerate 10 Red Cherries, right?

|Euphoria||Cool thanks, I will check it out in a few weeks|
|11-24-2011 04:19 AM|
Blue Pearls and Cherries will breed, as will the two types of Crystals you've got coming (Crystals won't matter if you're not too worried about qualities).
Will definitely want to separate the blues & cherries, though, for certain.

But that's a good starting point to start a solid breeding population of cherries.
Usually sell mine for about $1.50 per shrimp, as they tend to be of the deep red/Sakura varieties when they color up as adults. Depending upon how red their lines are, the price fluctuates. Won't know for sure until 2-3 weeks or so when I've got enough for shipping. I'll post them in the Power Sellers section when available, for sure.

Ya know, I kinda jumped into the shrimp thing without thinking about overpopulation breeding issues (and the ability to sell/trade offspring). I was even planning on keeping all these different shrimp in the same tank.
This is what I've got coming:
10 three-band Grade A Crystal Red Shrimp ($4 each, +$1 total shipping) from gordonrichards
10 Grade S Crystal Red Shrimp ($3 each, free shipping) from TheShrimpLab
25 Blue Pearl Shrimp ($1.60 each, free shipping) from TheShrimpLab
10 Amano shrimp ($1.60 each, $12 shipping) from ZID ZULANDER
10 Red Cherry Shrimp marketed as "Taiwan Fire Shrimp" ($3.00 each, free shipping) from BenBOMB
I'm sure I've overpaid for these, but they were an impulse buy and I didn't really do any shopping around.
Unfortunately, I also didn't do much research about shrimp before buying.
I hope these will all be okay in the same aquarium. I looked at a couple of "will they interbreed" charts and I'm still not sure if I'll be okay or not.
I was planning on keeping these together in my 56-gallon aquarium:
So far, the only ones that have arrived have been the Amanos. Man, they are gorgeous. Every one is between 1.5 and 2 inches and very lively.

I have high grade Sakura RCS.

|Euphoria||How much for red cherry shrimp?|
