The supply IS still somewhat limited.

There is also anecdotal evidence that the selection and breeding process to create the blue strain of caridina serrata (or perhaps some unknown factor in this color strain) has made the Aura Blue shrimp more sensitive and difficult to keep than other caridina serrata (like the Tangerine Tiger).
