I recently organized a group buy of snow whites locally since some people only want a few and can't justify the shipping. The extras included I passed onto everyone in the group. The last batch included CRS S, SS and snow white crystals. Needless to say, everyone was very pleased. Reefdive gracisously upgraded our shipping to a medium sized box without even mentioning it as the temps in NY were starting to climb that week.
Shipping is still an option. Just have the seller specify post office hold so that they don't needlessly take a 90 degree ride on the delivery truck needlessly. If there's enough interest, maybe I could organize another group buy for the locals...
Thanks for the leads, folks! I've been looking at reefdive's shrimp, as well as speedie's. I'm probably going to start out with 10 shrimp, and I'd like a good genetic diversity to start, so I may order the 10 from a couple of different people.
I may end up waiting a little while to get the Endler's. After thinking about it, I'd probably do best if I allow my shrimp colony to get established a bit before I add them. I'll definitely keep you in mind though, philemon, so thanks!
