Hi Binbin. I am in Olympia. I am new to the shrimp keeping too - just purchased 10 CRS juveniles. If all goes well, I hope to have more, with different varieties. Nice to know there is someone else interested in this hobby.

I'm in Ellensburg here. I've got red rilis, and working on my blue velvet population as well. Also messing around with some random blue rilis that popped up from my reds

Puyallup here... what's the purple shrimp in the second picture? Is it a cardinal?

Hi Binbin, I've not heard of brackish Sunkist shrimp. Do you have a picture?

Pretty. Let me read up on those. Need to see if they can permanently live in brackish, and/or how/when to acclimate them from fresh to brackish.

What water parameters are they currently living in?

Will get back with you ASAP... A mad rush here tonight and now about to walk in to work. (Graveyard worker here!)

One thing I Googled said that these shrimp live in mangrove swamps. If so, they should do fine in brackish tanks.

Well, I may be interested in trading but would like to see pictures if you can take some.

They are nice, curious if the opaque (orangy milky) look is normal for Sunkist.

Nice just added some Red Crystal today from Seachaz in Bothell and I have blue bees, tigers, Neon Yellows. Once the my other 15 finishes cycling with ADA aquasoil I'll probably get a king kong or two.
Binbin - You say you have Cardinals? Where did you get them, and what are the perimeters? Are you keeping them separate or together with any of your other shrimp? I am interested in getting cardinals and some Neon Yellows. TIA
