Aloha from Hawaii!

WOW Speedie! I really wish I had stumbled across this forum earlier! There were a couple of scrimps for sale, but I didn't pull the trigger because I didn't know how nice they could be. Now, I'm sure they were not as high quality as yours, but for a newbie like me, it would have been something to enjoy! All the best!

PS, make it out to Hawaii! Wanna collect crawfish? Just get in touch with any one of the watercress farmers! They would love for you to come collect them!

Welcome to TPT! Make sure you learn about keeping shrimp before you splurge and get some expensive ones. The expensive ones are usually the ones that require specific water params. Take your time and have fun . Start with Neocaridinas. Then move up from there. This forum has a pretty large shrimp based community so you're def in the right place.

I will def keep what you said in mind about crawfishing in HI . So fun!

I don't know if this is allowed or not (apologize profusely to mods if not) but I have just gotten into OEBTs. Got some from Speedie and some from another seller elsewhere (not here). The difference is NIGHT and DAY on the quality. The ones from Speedie are absolutely amazing...rich in color, good size...just top notch. Speaking of which, I need to email you Nick

Ahhh all the cute shrimp pictures I'm dying! I need to find my camera to start taking pictures again, I just use my phone, which is awful for taking REAL pictures.

Speedie, your pics are amazingly sharp for a close-up...what kind of camera are you sporting??

(i'm sure this has been asked before...i'm too lazy to comb through the entire thread)

Thanks guys!

Option - I shoot with a trusty Canon 60D and the lil tank of a lense, the 100mm f/2.8 macro.

Here's a group shot:

How do you do it? I have a 7D with a macro lens but I can't focus in, it gets blurry
