Well, I may be interested in trading but would like to see pictures if you can take some.

They are nice, curious if the opaque (orangy milky) look is normal for Sunkist.

Binbin - You say you have Cardinals? Where did you get them, and what are the perimeters? Are you keeping them separate or together with any of your other shrimp? I am interested in getting cardinals and some Neon Yellows. TIA

It in a separate fluval edge with PH at 7.8 to 8 temp is 82%. I'm trying to get my TDS lower its about 380

They are alone with some yellow rabbit snails. Midway Pet actually has some for sale in Des Moines.

Midway Pets just south of SeaTac on 99 sells Cardinal shrimp for about $13.00 each. They also sell yellow rabbit snails, a companion species.

We're in Everett, and are starting up some Red Cherries and Red Crystals. Not up for trading yet...just starting the colonies of squirmies.

In the Puget Sound area, Denny's Pets in Kirklan has Red Crystal shrimps (not SSS, somewhere in the middle of the grading) in store. That's where we got ours. I think they were $7/shrimp.

Do you only have the one? I may head own to Midway Pets and see if I can't pick up a couple. I have CRS in a ten gallon tank right now - was wondering if I could house them together. But my temps aren't that high - I have 78 on my tank with 7.4 PH...which is high for CRS but they appear to be handling it fine at this point. Since I am a newbie, I don't pretend to know what I am doing, just going off what everyone is saying. I started out with cycled tank water that originated from my tap - I am slowly switching over to Distilled water with the CRS hoping to bring down my PH.

Do you have Blue Orange Eyed Tigers? If so, let me know when you are ready to sell some of those.

Thanks and wishing you a prosperous shrimp colony.

I started with 6 cardinals and down to three now. I lost one due to screwing around with the GH and then 2 more when my heater sensor left the water and cranked the temperature up to 90! =

At $13 a shrimp those were some costly losses. I would house cardinals completely separate from your CRS. Those two in no way belong together in the same waters. I suggest getting a substrate that will buffer your water a bit. Although I have heard of folks having success with CRS at that PH as long as the water is stable and clean they should be fine.

If you have the funds I would invest in some aqua soil amazonia though.

I've had mixed feedback on OEBT. They do not breed true and can be a bit finicky. Your offspring can range from regular tigers to really dark tigers. They never come out as nice as the parents.

I almost got some too until someone told me about their experience with them. So I've decided to go the taiwan route and have 10 coming. =)

The shrimp list so far now is:
Tigers
Blue Pearls
Yellows
Fire reds
Cherries
CRS
CBS
Golden Bee
Blue Bee
Blue Pearl
A couple of left over ghost feeders
and BKK and WRs on the way.

Its a bad addiction.

Federal Way here!

I made an egregious error stepping into this heroine like hobby. I got 10 s+ CRS from Seachaz in Bothell and in a couple weeks ordered 20 SS and accidental SSS with shipment from a seller off [Ebay Link Removed] So far 2 berried females. I guess I can't really join this convo until I start culling. Reading everything on forums and keeping to general consensus from the wise ones on these beauties.

CRS Tank, mixed S+, SS, SSS (most are juvies)

29 Gallon old school Biocube planted
72-74 degrees
ph 6.6
kh 1
gh 4
dry fertz (everything but KNO3 and CSM+B) Following Tom Barr's EI schedule
CO2, 2 bps 24 hours
76 watts T5HO lighting 10 hours with 3 hour break mid day
eco complete substrate
AC 70, H.O.T. w/ bio wheel, sump connected to UGF (next week adding another canister w/ UV filter)
Various plants I have no idea the names just bought from Midway Pets and Burien's a Place for Pets.

Question: How do I decide what kinds of shrimp to cull out of my batch?
