TeteRouge As Elppan says, there are a few of us in town, and a couple people have ones breeding, so things are looking up...

I finally got my Red Cherries back in August from Atlantis. Basically I kept asking if they were ordering any, and had them save some- I have ten, not breeding yet but I will post when they do.. Think they were something like $3.98, buy 5, get 6th one free..? They also had a couple of bee shrimp and a crystal black..loved em, but my tank and talents aren't up to that..

Here my guys are going after some Azoo



ddrfreak_tung and I went to Trop Aquarium a couple weeks ago, they had cherries for 1.98, the ones with little red spots. They had a Fire Red and Amanos for $4ish...

We have a very loose, informal group of us locals on Facebook- it's open, all are welcome. It doesn't take the place of forums, but its fun and is a faster way to communicate http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/La...ter.Aquarists/

Elppan My shrimps will be having babies soon!
There are several of us out here that raise shrimps.

SINcity I just found this forum as my old one seems to literately be going belly up.

Anyways i too am interested in obtaining some shrimp. If none available local perhaps a few of us could put in an order together and divide up the shipping fees.

flipanda trying to bring back this thread, anyone have any for sale locally?

You still got some shrimplets? My tank is getting algae on hardscape and DHG and it's becoming very annoying. Probably 5 or so

Hmmm. trying to figure out what store that would be. Blue Reef is Saltwater, I think. The farthest north LVAC I can think of is on N Rainbow nr Lake Mead...

It's just sad we dont have a very active community here in vegas. I would love to get into the shrimp hobby (get some CRS's one day) but who knows if I could be like Priapus or the Reaper
I've been there with AZGardens, whew! Just did an order with LiveAquaria- a little less, but still!
Well, there are 6 of us right here that have planted tanks and 5 that either have or want shrimp. There are another 4 that occasionally post. There have to be more of us out there, TropAquarium says every time they get cherry shrimp in, they sell out right away. Petco on Rainbow/Spring Mtn gets cherries, and they go even at $5 apiece… so maybe we have a start at least.

....and maybe after awhile we all could have a bi monthly purchase where everyone pitch in for whatever they wanted and we could all split the cost of shipping. =D
....sometimes if the order is large enough, shipping is free Even though overnight is really the best, its still a trip when the shipping costs as much or more than the order.

hmm... maybe sometime soon we should all try for an informal meetup.

Good looking shrimplet, Combswillie!
