Wink Looking for cherry shrimp in Austin or San Antonio area

Posted a seeking cherry shrimp yesterday, seems not so many cherry shrimp breeders in Austin. Will have a trip to San Antonio this weekend. If cherry shrimp breeders have spare shrimps in or close to San Antonio, please PM me.

Any luck at AquaTek, The Fish Gallery, or Austin Aqua-Dome? I have been meaning to go check these places out.

Aqua-Dome has the best selection of neos I've seen in town. Really gorgeous blue dreams!

Fish Gallery sometimes has a ton of decent cherries for $4.

I also see low grade cherries on Craiglist pretty often for $1-2.

Crossing my fingers that this chocolate diamond colony of mine takes off soon. Then I may have some to offer you. :V

Anyone find local cherries? I'm hoping to find some from hard water like we have around here.

Hi all,

The best selection of cherry shrimp I've seen in Austin is at Aquatek and Aquadome. I believe that Aquatek is $4 a RCS and then all other "fancy shrimp" (rilis, blue dreams, CRS) are $12. I believe Aquadome was slightly more expensive... I will also point out that I have recently seen some really high quality RCS at Petco of all places... Mixed with some orange neos, some not so great rilis, and then some nice little (about 1/2 inch) Amanos... ALL the shrimp at Petco are $4 a piece... You just need to catch them on their new shipment days because they don't stock a lot of them... But honestly the RCS there were probably th best I've seen in Austin which was surprising.
