I have a pretty good sized colony of just about every Taiwan Bee color variation available and I can say that they are absolutely striking animals. Their colors are vivid and beautiful. It'll be a long while before the price comes down. though. There aren't a lot of us keeping them here in the US and even though we could bring in more, people aren't really waiting in line to buy them until the prices come way, way down.

Whoops! Forgot the link to my horde. I need to take some new pics...

P.S. The last 4 pics look like Orange Eye Black Tigers. Not Taiwans.

That's probably the most annoying thing about this hobby... There are a dozen different names for the same shrimp. lol

i _ALMOST_ bought some blue pandas (shadow panda) when I was in Japan, they were only 170-175 USD depending on the day (15000 yen) but I had no real way of getting them home, so I decided not to blow my life savings, hah

They really are awesome, much better than a picture can capture in real life.

Pretty much if someone wants to introduce these species they would have to eat the cost, breed them, and then sell them at a much lower cost. Initially it would be a huge hit, and no guarantee they would even sell. But if they were to become popular, in the long run would make lots of $ back.

But no one wants to take the risk, so its not likely to happen for a while. Its not like there is a huge market for shrimp in the US.

They are a challenging species, so there will always be a market for them as long as there are people wanting to challenge themselves. These aren't as easy to keep and breed as crs, the price reflects that. Meaning, these aren't shrimp that someone who wants 5 dollar shrimp would be able to keep alive, so dropping the price a lot isn't going to incite the market any more.

I used to think that too, but there's a really big hobby driven market in the US and an even bigger market (where the real money is) overseas.

A lot of people have these shrimp already in the US, including yours truly (as of days ago lol).

Yeah a few hundred or thousand people may seem like a lot, but not when it comes to a business. And im only talking about the US, obviously overseas they have a bigger market than us here. Sometimes you have to take a step back and realize your average fish hobbyst consists of a HOB filter and goldfish. I have no idea of the real statistic but probably only about 10% of that are planted tank hobbysts and actually have good knowledge of fish/tanks. Then probably 5% of that keep shrimp.

And again from a BUSINESS standpoint where the goal is to sell shrimp at a cost thats reasonable to the average consumer, these $150 shrimp arnt going to sell a whole lot. And from simple business/economics demand drives supply. No demand (or little) and there isnt going to be a supply readily available. The only way demand will go up is if price drops. The only way price will drop is if supply is high enough.

Its a catch 22 and like I said the only way around it, is if a business eats the initial costs. Which happens A LOT but is viable. Either that or a hobbyst finds a way to breed these easily and sells them cheaper after a while.
