Hey All,

I was just wondering what the avg. amount 'Crystal Red Shrimp' usually are because my LFS is selling them for $14.99 each but I don't know if that is good or not.

Thanks.

It really depends on the grade of the CRS. Some go for $200 per shrimp, some are $5 or less. The thing with most LFS are that they overprice their prices(they make money that way). I would buy it from a fellow hobbyist who keeps them...

just my .02

Yeap! I saw a CRS that you can buy for 2$ at LFS and they sell it for 15.99

-.- ...

Fails amirite?

Basically C-A is around 2-4
S-S+ 5-8
SS 10-15
SSS 15-30..

Thats what I've been noticing on these forums.
Best bang for buck is buying here, and i'm pretty sure someone would give you a deal.

Go for nipteks, thats pretty low

one thing you also have to think in the trade side since they are sensitive to ship and hold for wholesalers they tend to be pricey in stores. thats why you see the $4-$5 some times $6-$8 cherry shrimp a lot die and they tend not to be cheap to buy. yes they have mark up its a store but unless they are getting them from a local breeder they are prob paying too much to start with.
