Local Shrimps Trade for Better Gene Pool

After keeping shrimps for a while in an enclosed mini society, it's probably a good idea to add shrimps from different sources to expand the gene pools. Especially since most of us started out buying from a single source, where the shrimps most likely came from limited sample of genetic variations. Theoretically this would likely produce even hardier offsprings who would have high survival rate and be more resistant to diseases/bacteria.

I just got back to shrimp keeping the last few months, and I only have some fire reds and a few Blue Bolts. Now that spring is in the air, hopefully more copulation will yield bigger population!

Let me know if anyone in NYC might have some fire reds that they want to trade. We could trade like 10-15 juvies (1/4"-1/3" or so) and it'll be mutually beneficial.

My Blue Bolts have yet to breed since I am still growing out, but maybe in the near future.
