I would have to say you can get Cand B grades for $5 a piece from other hobbists.

A grades for around $8

S grades for around 10 to 15 a piece

SS grade would be $20 to $30

Yamato can be bought for around $2

can't find Mosura, never heard of them

Minami, haven't seen them anywhere. I guess I have some now but they were sold to me as a unknown shrimp or a Neocaridina sp which isn't true.

These are the prices I have seen for these shrimp. :)

These are prices that I have seen them at.

I have been asking people if they are interested, but most people I ask are waiting for the prices to lower before they will try raising CRS:(

Unfortunately, it's the market that sets the price. If people who lives around you aren't interested. You won't be able to sell even one S+ at a fraction of the price you invested.
That's the same situation where I live. There just isn't a market for you to sell. And no newb is going to hand you $200 or $300, if they aren't sure they can keep them alive long enough to breed them.
What I suggest is that you flood the market around you with C grade CRS. Sell them at lots of 10s. That is a good number to start a breeding colony. Keep only the C grade and your S+. Cull the in between. When enough people have the experience at breeding them. There will eventually be a demand for higher quality CRS.

there is market for both...
I agree. I think you guys are looking in the wrong places. Ideally you would want multiple different grades so you can always have what people are looking for... but thats in a perfect situation!
