Shrimp sale! Perfect for beginners!

An unfortunate Event Happened. After introducing OEBT's from Texas to my tank, there was a bacterial infection that wiped out the colony. I was really hoping to bring really nice shrimp that people could keep in NJ, water.

I was planning on selling very dark blue shrimp in the spring however they are all lost.

For those who are keeping Bee shrimp with RO. I will be selling those later on.



I have a bunch of culls that I would like to sell. They are wild types, lowgrade rilis, lowgrade carbon rilis.

These are absolutely perfect for people getting into shrimp. They are hardy, and very forgiving. *this is coming from a guy who tried to raise Crystal red shrimp without an RO unit. With NJ tap water and failed many times*

But nonetheless they are very affordable and can produce nice looking shrimps due to the genes they carry. You may actually even get very dark blue shrimp from them. As I always say, never under estimate culls.

edit I was busy with school so couldn't update my post or get to my pm's*

I have a about 2 packages available.

Shrimps are 1 dollar each!

10 Shrimp Minimum, Random scoop.


Also to sweeten up the deal! First few people will receive shrimp food samples!


I am located near Rutgers University New Brunswick. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY *It's too cold to ship and last time I mentioned shipping on a local sales thread i got in trouble :P*


These shrimps will do well with NJ tap water.

pH 7.2
TDS 220-250
GH 5
KH 2


If you are new to shrimp ans woulds like to learn how to keep them ill be more than happy to give you advice. I believe there should be more shrimpers in NJ!

I recommend using eco complete with these guys too. That's what I use and they've been breeding even if I neglect them!

btw petco sells red rilis like mine for 6 bucks each just saying :P

CRS/CBS/Tibees aren't for sale sorry!

Hmm I've been looking for some that would work in our tap. I live about ten minutes from you in Franklin Park.

How big are they? I'd need to buy a bunch since some would get eaten in my community tank. I have enough hiding places though that I think they'd thrive.

How many do you have available?

Sorry about that everyone I was busy with school right after I posted the thread.

As for shipping, its too cold right now, when it gets a bit warmer I can. But I don't think I'm allowed to advertise shipping on a local thread.

Also, I'll have nicer shrimp to sell which would be more worth while for those out of NJ. They'll cost a bit more but they are definitely worth it!
