Here's my take on it. It is only worth $300.00 if someone pays $300.00 for them. The American market is completely different than the Asian market. IMO the $20-$30 per is the upper limit for Neos in the US. Since they are Neos and have been offered to the public already. The $300.00 probably won't hold for a long time.

I love mine regardless of their worth. I'll just give them a bit more TLC now. They look like black tigers without the black legs. I have a problem that is reversed of normal...it appears that I have 10 females...I'm still trying to identify a male....10 females doesn't do me any good.

Hey Liam...I need a breeding stud. He'll have his pick of 10 lovely looking ladies.:biggrin:

Here's what I say, you wont be able to buy them for 30 dollars a piece, or probably at all until next year. Because even though the american market is full of cheap people (me included), that doesn't stop the asian market from sucking up every available shrimp. So everyone who got them, consider yourselves blessed, lol. Even though you wont be able to sell them for 300 a piece, you have something that a lot of people are drooling over. If this shrimp convention in Taiwan happened a week earlier, things would be a little different :p
