What do you mean screwed? As in them interbreeding? If so, no you're fine. Cherries are neos and CRS are cardinas so they don't cross.

It is indeed algae. Honestly the only algae I've had in any of my tanks that I think looks awesome. Idk what kind it is, but it stays short and is bright green.

Ahh thanks mjbn. I still haven't learned the whole genus species interbreeding yet.

Question. I really enjoy the crystal reds I have and would like to start getting into higher quality lines. Should I mix into colony I already have or should I start from scratch? Also I noticed some of my adults that have lost a significant amount of color; shell becomes less opaque and look generally pretty crappy. This happened after I moved tanks to my new house. Should I cull these adults or leave them alone? thank you!

Default new to Seattle WA

Hello, I'm new to the Seattle,WA area I came all the way from south FL
I currently have a couple of red cherry shrimp, most didn't make it hear alive from FL :/ I was wondering if anyone has any red cherries for sale? I recently went to a store called "The Fish Store" in the university district and they seem a bit high on the price they wanted for the shrimp.
I haven't gotten a chance to test the water here, how is the water here in WA? In FL it was insanely hard and the PH was insane. The KH was super low as well.

The tank I want to add the shrimp to is an 11.4 gallon rimless tank

Any responses and/or comments about the water here would be appreciated

Hello I am from Bremerton. I am trying to get into shrimp keeping, but I am unsure of ordering shrimp off the internet. Fear of recieving dead shrimp that wont even make a good meal.
I am interested in what places around the seattle area has shrimp that are not overly priced for sickly looking stock.

PM me.

I've shipped over to NY a few times without any losses. Anywhere in the west is cake and they usually arrive in 2 days.
