I doubt that's a real shrimp. I think its a computer rendering of what a perfect CRS might look like.

You can have a very similar looking one for 850 bucks.

Hey Nick,

When I bought the BTOE from you in the past, I got them to breed and even have some decent size babies before the infection took over. So I'm definitely looking to get some more BTOE.

Then some BKK.

And finally if I that job pans out, feathers or PRL would be nice too.
I sure hope your job pans out too bro.

Pintos will def set your bank account back some. Def fix your brakes first though.

If all goes well, in the summer I'll be getting my first TB tank started thanks to you, so get to placing those orders Nick.

Tibees are cool and after several generations, you'll start seeing some cool patterns/colors. You'll need lots of patience.

Red Tigers are another hard to come by shrimp. Blue jellies are near impossible to obtain. I wish you luck in finding some.

BKKs are only coming down in price and they are extremely hardy compared to other Caridinas. Heck they are just as easy as regular CRS. Great choice!

Brakes are done, LOL! The crunching sound they started making was terrifying.

I'm forcing myself to sit tight and not buy any more Taiwan Bees until I prove to myself I can breed the ones I have. But I will say that they all appear to be doing very well. It’s impossible to keep track of the individual BKK (only two of them have distinct enough markings that I can pick them out of the crowd at this stage), but the Extreme Red and the Blue Bolts make it easier for me to do a quick review and say, “Yes, yes still alive and thriving.”

I *LOVE* the Blue Bolts BTW. So glad I went with them.

Wow! That's really neat now time to rustle up some 💰💰💰💰💰.

I'll either try those or BKKs after I do Nick's CRS.

That's really good to know.. I'm dying for a black shrimp. A really nice black shrimp, really nice white shrimp and really nice blue shrimp -- now that's what I want .

A lot of this info is scattered. I had no clue BKKs were coming down, and even LESS of a clue that they were as hardy as normal CRS.

Blue bolts are awesome! I wish you good luck with your breeding.

Great choice!! Just be prepared to take care of a finicky shrimp. Know what you're doing with these guys or it'll be a wasted investment.

In time, you'll see TBs if they're true mischlings. Good luck!

Like nick said btoe might be the most finicky shrimp..... My tb breed and do better then them. But when they are going strong the look so amazing so dark black and that orange eye contrast is amazing. I have about 80 babies running around my tank but right after they were released the 5 females kicked the bucket for no reason. But they are all most juvie stage now and have 6 more berried females
