Wow, thanks! I guess I'll have to start keeping a close eye out, $3 for the salt and pepper grinder definitely IS cheap! Maybe i'll have to run to Walgreens....heehee. Those are definitely good prices on the mortar and pestal, but shipping almost doubles it so I'll be keeping an eye out, but they're definitely good options! Thanks for looking that up for me!

No problem. Googles does all the work.

I'm sure you'll run across something locally that will do the job.

Salt and Pepper? Sounds like someone wants to cook up some shrimp cocktail? jk

I got a picture of one of the mom missing her kids:

Would my Rams make short work of any shrimp I put in my tank?

Rev - hahaha no no don't worry, no shrimp cocktail! that's a great pic! she's so pretty! I wonder how she's related to my guys and gals heehee

Vicki - they're well worth it IMO! very fair price, really well packaged and gorgeous shrimp!

rpayer - The RCS are tiny so my guess would be yes, but I've never had rams before so I couldn't say for sure.

I'm already asking about them in PMs. He said he sold you the RCS, not the bamboo, and your RCS are outstanding! I wouldn't mind having a few... or a full colony of them!

Heeheehee awesome! Yeah I only got the RCS from him, the bamboo I actually got at my LFS, they have them in quite frequently and they're really healthy looking! If I recall they're usually $12.99 but I got mine on sale for $9.99. So they're not super cheap, but it could be worse, and anyway it was worth it in my opinion because he's a really interesting little critter and a great addition to the tank! I wish I had a good spot for a bamboo shrimp to feed in my 20g so I could put one in there too!

See? There you go. Getting me all interested in something that's going to be expensive!

I was imaging 6 Bamboo shrimp in my 75g. But at $13 each? OUCH!

It's all your fault.

hahahaha oh no! Yeah....i didn't think about that...it didn't seem so bad because I only wanted 1! You might be able to find them for less, my LFS is really good so I go there, but they're sometimes on the steep side price-wise. I've seen them elsewhere regularly priced at $9.99 i think. A little better than $13 SORRY!

LOL! No problem. I'll get my revenge soon enough.

Actually, I've been able to cut some price deals with a particular LFS since I buy most of my stuff there. So next time I'm making a large buy, I'll sneak in some bamboo shrimp into the deal.

hahaha sounds like an excellent plan! It's definitely nice to have that kind of relationship with a store that you trust too!

And I guess i'll have to start watching my back for that revenge.....EEP!

Your back is safe with me.

I want to get some more torpedo barbs, and you know how much they cost. Plus, I want to trade in my lone Pelvicachromis for a bonded pair which will cost me. And then I'd like to increase the number of Cardinal Tetras I have. And then I'm thinking of adding a couple of accent fish just to make it all more interesting. So, yeah, by the time I add it all up, I usually get a discount.

Hahahaha glad to hear my back is safe!

And yes, it sounds like you've got quite a few dollars you're planning to spend on fish anyway, heck after all that perhaps they'll just throw in the bamboo shrimp as a thank you for shopping with them! LOL Definitely good to be a good customer at a good store, ends up working out best for all!
