Orange Sakura shrimp trade? Gene pool dilution.

Hi everyone, I got two orange sakura shrimp from petco, both of which died, but the female came berried and gave birth in the tank. Now I have a bunch of nearly full grown shrimp that are all brothers and sisters and I need to get some new blood into my tank before they start breeding.

Is anyone interested in swapping shrimp around? I think I have 7 of them right now.

I'm going to have to rescape my tank to look like Appalachia and teach them to play the banjo if they don't get some new blood in there soon...

I should clarify, I have 7 males and probably 7 females too, it's the males I'm most interested in trading

It's safe to let them breed. I have a tank running on 2yrs without adding any new shrimp and all is well.
