Does anyone in Pdx have shrimp for sale?


I'll have goldens, blue pearls, and some carbon rilis available in the near future as well. Keep an eye out on Craigslist. I'll beat anyone elses prices locally to make it worth the trip. I typically give a few extras as well since my tanks are usually pretty full...

4 top tanks are empty waiting for some new species.

Right tank is goldens and blue pearls. Left is high grade CRS.

OEBT tank

Berried Blue Pearl

Golden/Snow White

Golden/Snow White... More solid white than the average Golden/SW you'll see for sale...

S, S+ CRS

Higher grade CRS

Berried Blonde OEBT... I keep these separate from my blue ones...

Another High grade CRS

OEBT

Carbon Rili, Hard to get good pictures cause they are always moving...

Yes, Currently the OEBT's and CRS S/S+ and SS are the only shrimp I have for sale. All out of culls... The others will be available shortly.

Only $8 to Olympia. +$1 for heatpack if you want it, I don't think you'd need it though since it's pretty close. I sent them to NJ without a heat pack and they made it there fine.

I'm really digging those blonde tigers! I'm not currently looking, but if I were and you had some to sell, how much would they be?

*edit* nm, just read your craigslist ad lol

I'll be willing to give the orange eye blonde tigers away for a little less than the blue tigers, probably like $6ish. They can still have blue offspring but I like to keep my blondes separate to make the blue breed true.

The blondes range from yellow, to orange, to transparent green/bluish, and even clear. They are pretty cool.

I have one that has a yellow front and tail but is clear in the middle. It's almost like a caridina yellow tiger rili... Here he is in my 5 gallon bedside tank, the only one I keep a variety in. Hard to get a good picture of representation due to the lighting and exposure. They have yet to interbreed so they are all still true lines. I use this tank to cull the blondes out.

Thanks SHMaRiM! I'd be much more willing to pay 6 bucks for a nice tiger than the $6 I paid for low grade cherries.

Just let me know, I've got probably about 15 or so at the moment. They show up every once and a while but have become more rare in the colony since I've started pulling them out.

Btw, just spotting this guy today! First berried golden! Might be available sooner than expected...



I initially bought 6 goldens. They were pretty nice but have a little bit of transparency mostly in the head region. I got 15 more last week from a different breeder. They are very high quality and super opaque! Hoping that by starting with two different suppliers the line will have good genetic diversity.

Just FYI last couple times I've been in The Wet Spot their shrimp look much healthier. I saw babies in the tank with the RCS, the blueberries were in excellent shape, and their CRS tank looks much improved. Also they've had some staff changes for the better.

FYI, my tanks are the original source of crs at the wet spot. I'll happily sell you crs for about half of what they charge...

Hi, I'm new to the planted tank hobby and looking to get some shrimp. Anyone currently selling some? I'm not looking to breed, just for tank decorations.
