Yeah, the day I bought them I looked it up on my phone and asked specifically if these required brackish water to breed. I was reassured they did not. I won't be buying shrimp from them anymore.

They have a large variety of shrimp, but I've seen all of the shrimp mixed in their tanks. It's hard to trust you are getting what you ask for.
