I just got these for $3 each. My first time with shrimp so I hope someone can tell me if they were a good deal and if these are of a certain grade. Thanks!

Thanks. Good to know. The store says they breed them.

Hopefully here's a better photo.

I'd pay $3 for local CRS any day regardless of grade So it's a good deal if you ask me!

They were 3.50 each but if you buy 6 you get one free so they became 3 each.

oh, thats from dreamer yoyo? pretty sure she price them as most normal online prices in her store, cause she breeds them.

I brought some mishlings and cbs from her, 35 for 10 mishlings and 30 for 10 cbs =)

Except i have no clue how to tell them apart, lol. But they are nice and started breeding 10 days after they got into my tank =). Have 6/20 of them berried right now =)!

Nice hopefully they'll do well in my tank. I liked her store a lot. Small but nice selection of shrimps and fish. She didn't have too many plants but looks like she normally would.
