Selling red cherry shrimp?

Is selling red cherry shrimp a possibility on here? I was curiois if anyone sells them on here since they breed Aparently so easily. I was looking into getting some and I trust the people on here more than the fish stores available to me. When shipped do they ship ok? Or do you have to do one day shipping. And what are good prices to look for? I've seen in fish stores around me for about 3 dollars a piece I think.

There are forums for buying, selling and trading stuff on here.

I've never shipped shrimp, but I have had YKK and Opae Ula's shipped to me. All shipped just priority mail. All arrived without any casualties. It can happen though... where shrimp freeze to death or even cooked in bag... but if shipper is experienced, this can be avoided.

I've honestly had better luck with YKK's than I have had with Neos, regardless of where the Neos came from... but that's a complicated subject... lol

$1-$3 from a breeder, depending on quality, is what I'd expect for most. Max may be $5 per shrimp.

Where you located? I know there are usually one or two in the CL ads in the Seattle area that sell shrimp, probably about 3-5 that sell plants. I ended up getting my shrimps at LFSs and it worked out.
