Local Shrimp breeders?

Hey guys, so I recently started a Caridina tank which currently holds two CRS and one what I think is a Wine Red Pinto all females (as well as a couple other fish that are taking care of a hydra infestation, I will move them to another tank soon). I am looking for a male CRS or Wine Red (I may also get various other shrimp) and I am wondering if there are any local shrimp breeders preferably in the Chicago area who have these shrimp at a good grade and decent price. My LFS has shrimp but not the ones I am looking for and most of them are female. Thanks!

Bump. I am also interested to know where I can find local shrimp or fauna breeders.

Thanks ahead!

They sell shrimp on their Band page. They also have a Facebook page but all sales go through the Band page due to Facebook restrictions on selling animals. They are also at the GCCA Swap meets - next one is Jan 12th.
