Good stuff bro! Good luck to you. More sellers mean pricing will go down, and that means more shrimp for everyone to enjoy .

Pintos, PRL, other high end shrimp are a hard sell in the US. US buyers still struggle with what quality shrimp are vs just grades.

I've reached out to some smaller breeder contacts and currently I am working out the details.

speedie408 Who likes this shrimp? I've been growing very fond of it for some reason. Not sure why...
It's a Tiger x CRS offspring that I raised and has now reached maturity. Very proud father here, can you tell lol.


Shrimp heads anyone? This is another Tiger x CRS offspring from the same batch but this one looks more like a Tiger, other than the white markings on the tail.

speedie408 The picture my source sent me looks a bit different from my Greens and Bryce's Nessies. I'll get permission to show you guys and will post up once approved.

wicca27 i wouldnt mind if the new green jade neo's gave other colors as well it would be something to work with later on. truth be told i cant wait till i can get my hands on some of the nessies as well. you have done great work. and personally i am more of a fan of the stained glass look in shrimp vs the painted look. be it red like some of the bloody marry cherrys ive seen in pics, dream blue rilli, or the yellows.
