Would like to get some cherry red or blue pearl shrimp, So far the only place we have found in the Eugene Springfield area that has these sells them for almost Evil or Very Mad 10 bucks each. So hoping to find a breeder that sales them for much less Smile

I am new to Shrimp so maybe I am way off, but 10 seems rather much. If that is normal please let me know. The only shrimp I have had in my tanks in past were Ghost shrimp and I would rather have some with color.

Thanks.

I can't say whether $10 is a lot for red cherry or blue pearl shrimp, as I haven't really gotten into the shrimp scene. I do know though, that ghost shrimp are pretty much the cheapest shrimp you can get, and are used more as feeders than as pets, so other shrimp will certainly be more expensive, I just couldn't say how much.

Thanks for the response! The ghost shrimp are rather cheap, only 33 cents at Petsmart, my Betta ate both as a snack.

Hoping to find some much cheaper than the Aqua Serene price, my son also has a fish tank and has been looking for these, just hoping to help him out. They would be dinner in my tanks.


Am still hoping to find a breeder here locally that sales them. (gotta love this site for making it easy to ask!)

I have been gone for the past month and just got where I can get back on here. I will be doing total cleaning of my shrimp tanks in a week or so and will be willing to sell my culls for $1 a piece. I only cull them if they aren't super colorful so there is nothing wrong with them just not what I'm trying to work for. My culls are still usually better looking than the pet stores anyways. I have two types of blue and cherries. I will let you all know what I end up with for sale.

Were you able to check your shrimp? If you do not have any we are going to try and order online, would rather get from you though..local is better any day!

BTW they will not go in my tanks, but a relatives in the same house..lol. Did not want anyone thinking I would let them live with Mr. Betta since he eats them, and am sure the Shark would too.
