Hey y’all! My breeding project has gotten a little out of hand so I’m looking to sell some! $3 each, regardless of the color you want. Couple of example pics below (they make great bristleworm eaters!) Bloody Mary, Blue Velvet, Black with Gold, Cherry, Black, Blue Rili, Red Rili, Gold, Blue Topaz, etc colors available.

Pick up in Sugar Land Mon-Thurs and Sunday afternoon or I can meet you on Friday evenings at the Woodlands Fish Gallery most weeks.

10 for $20 and 20 for $45 packs available! Keep in mind that I will be picking the shrimp for the packs (randomly) but I’ll make sure it’s a good color mix)

Willing to trade for coral frags, shrimp compatible fish, plants, salt or freshwater equipment, etc. Interested in just about everything lol.

They look beautiful and variety of colors is amazing! My 9yo son just re-started his 10G freshwater tank and wanted to pick up some cool shrimps - are these easy to keep alive? How many per 10G assuming he would add a couple peaceful fish later?

They are very easy to keep! I have over 300 now in my 10 gallon with 3 cardinal tetras, I started with about 60 a year ago. Definitely a great starter tank stock choice, it’s very interesting to watch the female carry the eggs then a bunch of little shrimp appear a couple weeks later

Hi, I do not know anything about freshwater, we have currently 1 danio rerio and Gold Inca/mystery snail, planning to build up to a school of 5 danio rerios, where also thinking of adding ghost shrimp. I did some research and crystal shrimps are supposed to like acidic water and also different water hardness that snails and danio rerios. Are you using any additives to change water pH? Any chance baby shrimps would survive in a community tank with danios? also bigger shrimps, like ghost shrimps, would prolly harass your beauties? we hold on adding ghost shrimps for now to be able to add your shrimps potentially, but I worry about potential water requirement incompatibility, we got from Aqadvisor.com, which was recommended as a good freshwater advise webpage

I just fill the tank with RODI water from my salt setup, no additives at all. :)

I’ve had very good experiences with rasboras and smaller tetras like neon and cardinal. Zebra danios shouldn’t be an issue, especially if the tank is heavily planted or otherwise decorated so the shrimp can have some refuge. One momma shrimp creates dozens of babies in my tank with the cardinal tetras and a lot of the babies that reach the size where I can see them survive into adulthood.

I’m not sure about ghost shrimp compatibility, as ghosties are around 2” and my shrimp max out at 1”-1.5”. I would just use crystal shrimp, as I’m unsure if the ghosties would harass the smaller shrimp.

Great, thanks for the info. I was using RODI first but now have read that fish may be missing minerals and snails needs calcium to build shells. Do you have snails also?

but since you have essentially the same set up at least your crystal shrimps should be happy in our tank. We can pick them up next weekend (long drive from G town). You mentioned you would do trades, I think we would like ~5 shrimps of different colors. I have Red Sea current splitters new in the box or Japanese lilac polyps frags (that look like blue polyps in the photo but are supposed to be fancier) or a Kenya tree? Not much else currently as far as livestock, restarting the tanks now. Lmk
