Looking for a few things...inverts, rams in STL area

Hi, I'm looking for anyone who might have a breeding colony of any of the following, from whom I might buy a few of each:
- Mexican orange crayfish
- German blue rams
- electric blue crayfish
- nerite snails (not sure if these can breed in fw tanks or not...)
- any sort of shrimp

Please text me 314-541-6518 or reply on here, thank you!

Kinda sucks that there are only a few good shops left around here, but Tropical World Pets off of Watson usually has all of those species. Nerites will lay eggs in Fresh water but they will not hatch without salt water.
125g semi planted. 2 silver angels, 14 silver tips, 16 white fin ornatus tetras, pair of Nicaraguense, pair of nototus severums, trio of firemouth cichlids. 2 FX5s, 1 1500gph circ pump, 2 48" LED lighs, and a HUGE piece of driftwood.

650g fish room. 15 30g tanks, 150g sump.

The Petco at Manchester and Baxter frequently has a variety of nerites. All of mine have died though, except my horned bumblebees and olives. I found that the tracked and zebra nerites tended to flip on their backs and were unable to right themselves. I was constantly flipping them back over, but if I missed them for a couple of days, they died.

I have developed a special fondness for ramshorns, and I keep them in all my tanks now. I even got rid of my assassins so they wouldn't kill off my rams. I throw a couple of handfuls of crushed coral in with my substrate in a lot of my tanks, because it really helps their shells. I have one tank where they have grown huge and range from quarter to dime sized.

My shrimp have stopped breeding. Too much TDS buildup in my tap water. I just bought an RO system and will be installing it today. Once I get things right in all my tanks, I hope they'll start breeding again. You saw my yellow tank. I also have cherries (though most of them died) and BV's. If my colonies get going soon, I'll hook you up.
