I was considering a shrimp tank to put in my sons room. I checked out a LFS (Pets Inc) and they have like 5 varieties of shrimps.. I am lucky I guess.

the store i was planning to order shrimp from is curently using the shrimp listed for breeding stock so this tank might never happen im quite dissapointed with my first time ordering through the internet
