Good to see that books are finally coming out on shrimp. The literature on shrimp keeping is definitely lacking unless you jump from forum to forum.

Looks like a decent novelty magazine but seems rather basic so far. I'd argue there's more info (and better photos from people like Nick) here on TPT. Granted, I'm more interested in reading something online than I am something printed these days.

Though, nice to see items like that spreading to the United States.

I'm going to get it. It is full of interviews with European breeders, and the Europeans, especially the Germans, are a few years ahead of us when it comes to breeding Taiwan Bees, Tibees, and Sulawesi shrimps.

Of course, in Europe there is tremendously fierce competition in shrimp breeding, so it remains to be seen how much useful information is actually shared by these top breeders.

There are some things you can get that are written in German as well. The appeal of this publication, besides being the newest, is that it is available in English.

It's called fancy tiger, you probably won't see many of them until the price in japan goes down. When Iwas there a few mmonths ago, fancy tigers were fetching between 250 and 500 dollars a piece. Same with pinto bees. Germans manufacture both and sell to the highest bidder (which is always japan).

We get stuff after its no longer a fad in japan. We do get neos pretty quick though, and that's probably because neos are not popular in japan.
