Sounds like keeping shrimp lol

Petco is everywhere and carry red cherry shrimp and can order a variety of shrimp on request. I recently saw some I think Yellow King Kongs at Petco, mislabled the day they arrived tho lol, and they almost always have red cherry shrimp, amano shrimp, and ghost shrimp. I've seen them carry Snow White Bee shrimp on occasion as well.

LiveAquaria is affiliated with Petco, and I've found the variety on the site listing matches exactly what can be ordered(not that you can always get what's on the order sheet). Don't buy from their website, their packing/shipping/pricing is terrible. Go to a store and ask them to get some in and pay the in-store price which almost always beats online+shipping especially in the lower quantities.

Try keeping a ghost shrimp alive, they're real cheap like feeder fish cheap.

Try @TropicalAquarist for blue dreams. Planning to get some if I can ever clear out all these jars that I'm growing out shrimp in. Need to clear the jars away so I can set up a tank.

Don't ask for advice. Ask for information, gather lots of information from different reliable sources. Then use the information to make your own advice.
