and maybe after awhile we all could have a bi monthly purchase where everyone pitch in for whatever they wanted and we could all split the cost of shipping. =D

It's just sad we dont have a very active community here in vegas. I would love to get into the shrimp hobby (get some CRS's one day) but who knows if I could be like Priapus or the Reaper
I've been there with AZGardens, whew! Just did an order with LiveAquaria- a little less, but still!
Well, there are 6 of us right here that have planted tanks and 5 that either have or want shrimp. There are another 4 that occasionally post. There have to be more of us out there, TropAquarium says every time they get cherry shrimp in, they sell out right away. Petco on Rainbow/Spring Mtn gets cherries, and they go even at $5 apiece… so maybe we have a start at least.

....sometimes if the order is large enough, shipping is free Even though overnight is really the best, its still a trip when the shipping costs as much or more than the order.

hmm... maybe sometime soon we should all try for an informal meetup.

Good looking shrimplet, Combswillie!

there was a store on the north side, and i mean way way north. it was near an lvac, that's all i remember. they were selling their shrimp for around 3.50 but if you bought more they'd reduce the price. that's where i got my colony of cherries. not sure if they still have any tho

Hmmm. trying to figure out what store that would be. Blue Reef is Saltwater, I think. The farthest north LVAC I can think of is on N Rainbow nr Lake Mead...

You still got some shrimplets? My tank is getting algae on hardscape and DHG and it's becoming very annoying. Probably 5 or so

I just found this forum as my old one seems to literately be going belly up.

Anyways i too am interested in obtaining some shrimp. If none available local perhaps a few of us could put in an order together and divide up the shipping fees.
