I live a sheltered life!

I just ran across Cherry Red Shrimp for sale on ebay. Now I want some for my 120g. How expensive are they?, how big do they get? They were wanting $22 for 12 (I think) then another $11 for shipping (I understand that is for overnight, UPS or Fedx)...is that a good price? It includes males and females of breeding age. If I can find them locally, how much should I expect to pay? I still haven't gotten the tank yet (still trying to design the stand), but we have a list of fish that we are interested in.

Thanks for your input!

Don't get confused with CRS (Crystal Red Shrimp) and RCS (Red Cherry Shrimp). RCS are cheap and many people often sell them in the Swap and Shop section here, due to them easily overpopulating their tanks. CRS are much more expensive and come in different grades. There are a few people that do sell them in our Swap and Shop section as well.

I just searched the CRS, and I know someone has one as their avatar...I was wondering what kind that was!...CRS are "paint shrimp" (like a paint horse) and the RCS are "solid" red right? the solid red are was in the picture I was looking at, but the CRS are awsome too (may have to have those!!!)
Does this mean I have shrimp fever? LOL

Susie, I would keep your eyes open on the SnS here because red cherry breed like rabbits, so many sell them here as cheap as 0.50 each, but shipping is always the killer since over the winter either you need 1-day or 2~3-day with a heat pack to pull it off.
