Shrimp Breeders
I'm a new shrimp keeper in the Kent Area. I'm hoping to find a few like minded individuals who may be interested in trading or selling or buying from each.

I currently keep:

Golden Bees
Blue Pearl
Fire Reds
Crystal Red and Blacks
Sunkist Shrimps

Hi Binbin. I am in Olympia. I am new to the shrimp keeping too - just purchased 10 CRS juveniles. If all goes well, I hope to have more, with different varieties. Nice to know there is someone else interested in this hobby.

Yeah only a handful folks here that I know of keeping shrimp.

My Blue Pearls almost ready to release and my golden bee just released babies today.

Here's the video and photos.

I'm in Ellensburg here. I've got red rilis, and working on my blue velvet population as well. Also messing around with some random blue rilis that popped up from my reds

Nice just added some Red Crystal today from Seachaz in Bothell and I have blue bees, tigers, Neon Yellows. Once the my other 15 finishes cycling with ADA aquasoil I'll probably get a king kong or two.

Im pretty new to shrimp as well. Just got a batch of shrimplets from my crs and blue velvets. Once my colony grows a little more id be interested in trades. Have some goldens as well.

Puyallup here... what's the purple shrimp in the second picture? Is it a cardinal?

Yes it's a cardinal I guess they turn a blue color at night. Or when stressed.

Hey Rob,

I have 3 sunkist shrimp that will only breed in brackish water. I dont have the setup for that. Do you keep any other freshwater shrimp you would like to trade?

Rob in Puyallup 01-02-2013 10:30 PM

Hi Binbin, I've not heard of brackish Sunkist shrimp. Do you have a picture?

These guys right here. The babies need to develop in brackish water and it looks like you maybe the guy to do it.

Rob in Puyallup 01-02-2013 11:26 PM

Pretty. Let me read up on those. Need to see if they can permanently live in brackish, and/or how/when to acclimate them from fresh to brackish.

What water parameters are they currently living in?

I have them in fresh water right now with about 7.0-7.2ph temp is about 80 since they are sharing a tank in a breeder box with another fish I have.

The TDS is on the high side though from the fish. I think only the babies need to go to brackish water the adults are fine in fresh.

Will get back with you ASAP... A mad rush here tonight and now about to walk in to work. (Graveyard worker here!)

One thing I Googled said that these shrimp live in mangrove swamps. If so, they should do fine in brackish tanks.
