I may see what I can do. Our kiddo is out for fall break in a few weeks and I want to make a family trip down there (redneck's version of the Chattanooga Aquarium...HAHAHA). So I'll see if I can speak with someone. If I can find out what I can do and how to network I can always run down there to post flyers.

Hey all! Hendersonville/Madison, TN (Rivergate area) shrimper here! I'm pretty new at the shrimp hobby (6+ months) but love them! I have been trying my hand with a 10g PFR tank and have some RCS in my 20g long with rasbora. I have been cycling an Ebi Shrimp tank and trying to learn as much as I can before I order my first attempt at CRS in that tank!

Talk to Ken at Aquatic Critter. All those guys are super nice and very helpful! They'd be willing to help spread the word. I go in there fairly often when I'm down there for work. You could also try to talk to Emerald Bay but I'm not sure if they are doing much anymore. I know they have some pond stuff and I heard that although they do not carry livestock they will order per customer request for pick up. I don't know if that's still the case any longer though. I have attended one of their meetups back when I was in the saltwater hobby and it was a good turn out with a lot of nice people!

Anyway, I wanted to chime in and let you know that there is another shrimp lover in Central Tn.! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

La Vergne, here.

Our water is so hard (GH and KH around 10) that I'm having a tough time keeping RCS. 0 Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite and 7.8 PH. Hate to mess with water since parameters have been stable for several months.

Two 5-gallon heavily planted tanks and Bettas Si and Willie and one RCS survivor in each tank. They don't bother the shrimp; more the other way around. :-)

Glad to find this forum and glad there are more shrimpers in Middle Tennessee; count me in for a meet. I'm retired so I can do whatever's needed.

RCS should do fine with those water parameters
its likely something else.

I've been thinking about getting some shrimp for my high-tech planted, currently housed are Rummynose tetras, CandyCane Tetra, and Bristlenose plecos.

Thinking about what i want, maybe Amano, Tiger, or Neon Yellow.

I've decided on super tiger shrimp, I'm also tempted by the Orange rili...

Heart of Nashville here. If anyone locally has PFR for sale, I would love some. I had a tank of them until I left for a week during the winter and their heater went out. I have one lonely little bright red girl left. She needs her colony back. Last time I checked Aquatic Critter, they only had regular RCS....not nearly as red as what I'm looking for.

I've never seen any really red ones at Aquatic Critter. But what they get are mostly pretty small, so I'm not sure how much they'd color up later.

I've only got orange neocaridina, so can't help you out. I ended up buying online.

I originally got mine online too. I will definitely go that route if I can't find them locally. Thanks.
