WTB RCS or other Neos

Looking to start with some RCS or other neos, probably a dozen or so depending on price. As this is my first go with shrimp I am not looking for top grade and expensive. I prefer to pickup locally, preferably Boston or north of. I am hoping to make it to a BAS meeting soon so could possibly meet there. Please PM me with anything. Thank you.

I am thinking of turning my current 15G into a RCS tank. Right now I have four FRCS grade in there, but when I move out the bigger fish to the tanks I'll be getting from jblais, I plan on getting more FRCS.

I went on amazon and these prices are very good. I bought my current FRCS @ $8 bucks a pop from the LFS.

25 x Standard RCS

You can always ask in the invert section if anyone has had any experinces with mail order.

Good Luck!

Thanks, ill keep amazon in mind but I would much prefer to avoid shipping risks and costs. I found a couple sellers on aquabid that are local. Never used that site before though so a bit leery. I assumed it would be a slam dunk on this board. Truly surprised no one is selling here. Thanks again though for the suggestion.

Still looking so if anyone is in MA and looking to sell please PM me. Tried to purchase some from a nonlocal seller on here but it didnt turn out well. DOA from poor packaging. Gave more $ for a reship but then was told they didnt have enough shrimp to send me on the reshipment. I was stuck waiting for my refund of the original amount until the seller got paid from another source. It was odd that the paypal funds i originally paid disappeared so quickly. Very frustrating to say the least.

Still hoping to find a local seller to avoid this shipping madness. I am going to try to make this month's BAS meeting in hopes someone is selling shrimp at the auction if I dont find any before then. Please PM though if anyone wants to sell. Thanks.

@ Adrand , have you checked out Aqua View in North Hampton yet?

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

I dont think I will be making it that deep west anytime soon unfortunately. Would love to check that place out if ever possible though so I will keep it in mind.

Finally got my hands on some rcs this weekend from a local member on here. Much appreciated, very fair price and great shrimp. Have already colored up nicely. Thanks for all the suggestions.
