dont use white sand with shrimp, they color better with dark substrate. Use a black sand =D!

They try to blend in so white sand = faded shrimps =<

try Craigslist - I purchased a few decent RCS from a guy in Kenmore Square that seems to put some up for sale periodically - there are several other sellers I have seen on CL in the past few months...
