Default Anyone have any "different" shrimp available?

I have a tank of cherries, but want to do a second shrimp tank. Maybe some of the blue ones with gold colored eyes, the orange bee's, some kind of yellow ones. No more red ones, and not really into the snowball or other "clearish" white type shrimp. Let me know what you have and how much you want for them - perhaps we can just take care of it at the Sept meeting.

Thanks in advance, Sharon

We got some Tiger striped ones from Dave (they were sold to him and Larry as Indonesian Zebra shrimp, but they look a lot like Tiger shrimp). They are easy to breed, but we just have a few right now. I will get in touch with Dave and see if he would like to sell a few.

We also have zangshenisis (spelling?) which are the same size as cherries, but are blackish blue to brown depending on what color gravel they are on at the time. Some of ours get a brown stripe down their back as well.

Of course, we also have a few crystals, but we had very bad luck with the ones we ordered online, and only have about 3 left, so can't sell any of those yet.

I have rainbow/dark green shrimp (species name under debate.) They vary from green to brown to red with stripes down their backs. If you're interested, I can send you some pictures.

Thanks to you both - each of those shrimp are really great, but after talking it over with hubby - we agree (that's rare enough!) that we want either the yellow ones or the orange bee's. But I do really thank you both. I'll edit the OP so that it is a little more exclusive now. Been spending a lot of time researching and looking at pics of the various types - and with our black gravel, the yellow or orange will really pop. It's for the office, so we want something bright and cheerful and easy to see while on the phone...
God bless you both for your thoughtfulness!

Will keep my eye out for them, Dave made an order with another member not too long ago, and they may have gotten some yellows. I will ask when I get the chance.

Thanks Talley - I'll await your reply on the yellows. And in the meantime, if anyone else has any yellows or Orange Bee's available, please PM me and let me know. Thanks again - look forward to finally making the meeting again - hopefully nothing derails it again this time (knock on wood...). Let me know if you hear of anything before the meeting though and they can bring the shrimpies with them to the meeting

They did order some, but havn't gotten them yet... so it will probably be a month or two before they are ready to part with any.

Actually that timing isn't so bad. I'll talk to Dave at the meeting about them. Thanks Talley for playing Middle Person for us! Seeya soon.
