Cherry Shrimp
What is the best way to get Cherry Shrimp..? I'm fascinated by them and I might be looking to add them later on to my tank. Are they okay to buy online? Just no LFS around here has any :(

From what I have seen on here, some members have had very good success buying them from fellow members of the site.

Lots of colors to choose from in cherry shrimp. yellow, orange, blue, rili, red of course- and more!

Go to the sales section here, check the reputation of the seller through private pm and you can use the feedback as a guideline. Make sure the seller has very good insulation for packing at this time of year, ask about heat packs, and then make your decision.

Personally, I've always gotten good shrimp from here. :)

This site or Aquabid. I've had nothing but great experiences with both. Get the highest grade shrimp you can find/want to pay for... they're all really hardy IME and you'll be happier with the colors. If you're uncomfortable shipping, you can always post a Want to Buy on this forum and say that you're looking for someone in SE Michigan ... there's gotta be somebody local to you that you can just pick the shrimp up from.
