FS: My Taiwan Bee Colony

Hi All,
I've decided to put my colony up for sale. I'm feeling like redoing my tank, and these guys would not make it through that. I strongly prefer pickup, as I do not want to deal with shipping during the holidays or cold weather. Package is as follows:

Salty Shrimp GH+ 1,000g 90% full
Azoo Shrimp Food - both breed and grow varieties
API GH/KH Test Kit

Colony of 50+ (conservatively counted) - Stripe Type, King Kong, and Shadow Bees ranging from juvenile to full adult. Colony is doing great, at least 4-5 berried females right now.













/Edit/ I am being told by moderators that a price is required. Prevailing prices that I have seen are between $14-$20/shrimp. That brings the value of this package to be well over $800 once including dry goods. Asking $500 for the entire lot. That will wind out to less than $10 for a Taiwan Bee Shrimp! /Edit/

Update! Price drop down to $600 for the package.

Questions? Feel free to post in this thread.

Offers? Please send those via PM.

Hi all! I wanted to bump this as they are still available. I've had a couple people flake out, and figured to let things cool down for the holidays as that is usually a busy time for everyone. This gorgeous colony is still available!

bumping this up as they are still available!

I may consider parting out is enough local interest in that. If not, I'll wait till it's warmer out and get market pricing for them and ship them.

Would consider all if not partial if we can meet halfway, coming from the Bx myself. Also would rather prefer on a warmer day lol.
