If you'd like to buy shrimp locally, please post. Also, what shrimp would you like to see available?

Thank you for your input!

No doubt!! I'm not quite ready to try breeding them, though.

I would buy some locally. It doesn't matter to me which ones, just something other than ghost shrimp.

I have RCS. I've been breeding them right here in our HARD Florida water.
I have limited quanities for sale or trade. Send a PM if interested.

I'm also currently trying to breed CRS in a 50/50 mix of FL tap and R/O.
No luck yet on the CRS but I'm trying.

well i got pretty lucky and in the petco near my house the aquarium guy was able to get some amanos and hes trying to get some RCS. he's seriously the only guy in the Seminole county area that has these shrimp.

every time i go to a pet store and ask for shrimp everybody points me to those darn ghost shrimp.

but if anybody has any breeding amanos, i'll surely be interested

Not an easy task, they do not breed in freshwater. I don't know of anyone successfully breeding them. In Germany there are a few hobbyists trying.
My cherries are breeding like crazy. You need some Lauralee?
I also have blue tiger babies, but they are sure growing sloooow.

Lauralee, I'm actually getting ready to set up a small tank for RCS. I'm going to try to only breed the super duper red ones.

I already have some from Dodgefreak that are reall badass!
