It's really an issue of supply and demand. They aren't readily available because most breeders don't offer them. If they have to pull them from their own breeder stock or be special ordered, then...

1. I'm sure he will. Speedie is a fellow shrimp enthusiast so I have no doubts that he'll make it happen.

I can't speak for Speedies prices, but from what I have seen and from purchasing my own, they were priced pretty close to Taiwan Bees. I know it hurts, but these shrimp are much, MUCH stronger than...

Yep, that's a Crystal White. This is just one example, but there's a lot of stuff that doesn't come into the US. Aside from throwing a higher number of TB's, this particular shrimp offers a lot of...

Very few shrimp will consistently throw 100% so that's rarely a deciding factor. Blue Bolts are a good example of that. As long as the morph is repeatable with a standard color or pattern that's...
