getting back into shrimp, whats new?


so I haven't been on these forums for a long while since my shrimp tank died off. eventually it was just too much to try to start again in terms of getting good quality things. I started keeping tarantulas which are much less and and less expensive but now that I've become more independent, I want to start with shrimp again. so what all kinds of shrimp have come into the market while I was away? looking to start with some kind of newer Neo. I remember blue rilis., pumpkins, chocolates, and orange sakuras were pricey the last time I was on here. what's the price for neos now? what's new with the invert world?

Chocolates are around $10 and lower
Oranges are ~$3
Blue Rilis are ~$3-4

Pure Red Line (PRL) CRS are the new big things.
TB's are popular and get to around $35 for the cheapest ones.

I'll tag on here, since I'm in a very similar position. Especially when looking for nice CRS or CBS, where does one go nowadays? Is speedie still an option (speedie if you're reading this ... let us know)

When I first got into the hobby Cherries were 5-6 dollars a piece.

That's how made all my money in college.

It seems cherries have been going blue crazy. Some may even be the same, but some blue names: Blue Jelly, Blue Rili, Blue Velvet, etc.

Makes it very confusing when colors look the same. LOL
