I got an e-mail with pics back and the snows looked golden, so I'll be looking for a higher quality. Still searching...

Good luck
I have also had good experiences dealing with him. I agree that his Goldens are yellow, not Snow white, though.

Send me a pm, and I will give you an address of someone who *probably* has some nice Snow Whites. We aren't supposed to mention specific sellers on here, are we?

Vendor reviews are prohibited here, but I'm not sure if suggestions are prohibited.

To avoid closure of the thread, I'd advise not posting negative reviews about specific vendors, rather shoot Soothing Shrimp a PM.

You asked for it ;-) I couldn't get the nicer ones to come to the front, as using these macro lens on cell phone has its limitation. This one looks ok. It didn't want to stay still.


And here is the newly set up tank. Only 1/3 of the length is covered with ADA New Amazonia.



The covered part.


Golden are really nice to look at, if I can get them to be as white as mananaP's CRS then I'll be so happy. Before that happens, I find the colour on golden attractive anyway.



And this is another project I'm working on, "Golden Rilli"?!



And their cousin ;-)

I believe the one you are calling the 'golden rili' is just a golden skeleton. Check this link

It's a shrimp I know, whatever people call it ;-) I have about 5 from the same clutch and I have crystal white bee/shrimp in the same tank. I am not sure if the male CWS fathered that clutch. I will see if I will get more of these by keep them together.

Yepper. I've seen the skeles for good prices, however I've also seen them trying to be sold for as much as $100 ea. on AB. Depends what one is willing to pay I guess.

randyl, the goldens used to be called grade G and highly sought after.

Now snows and goldens are considered "waste shrimp." I really commend ANYONE who decides to bring class back to these attractive shrimp. My kudos to you, sir.
