What shrimp are "you" looking to get for 2013?
 
I know there's been a large influx of new shrimp keepers for 2012. It's been a great Shrimpin year !! Moving into the New Year, I wanted to find out what's everyone looking to get for 2013?

I'd kill for BTOEs lol. But in all reality I just want to start a SUCCESSFUL CRS colony.

Great choices! I'm assuming you have previous experience keeping Caridina sp? OEBT's can be a bit finicky expecially during the warmer summer months.

Awesome choice, but as I stated about the OEBT, BTOEs are even more finicky so be ready for a challenge. :hihi:

Tigers! All of the tigers! I think all of their variations arw so cute! Also more Sulawesi (especially cardnals)
Pretty sure I'm the only person that has no desire for CRS/CBS lol

Low grades because this will be your first time keeping Caridinas sp. Cantonensis? I'm curious because most folks seem to waste their time keeping lower grade crs while they can easily take on SS-SSS grades just as easy. They are just as hardy IME.

Don't count on it. It's easy-to-keep shrimp or nothing for me.

Vampire Shrimp are Atya gabonensis.

My vote is those Carbon Rili Shrimp.
