    I have 3 larger clear shrimp. Maybe 1.5" or so. I acquired them from Ted like 2-3 yrs ago. I long ago forgot the name. Ted thought they were Amano shrimp

    I have some little clear shrimp that are maybe .75". I have a few females that look like they have small ones under their bellies.

    I have tried cherry shrimp but I always seem to lose them

    Invisible cherry shrimp. Every time I get them going well , they fade into the sunset and disappear

    I've got some of Ashley's orange shrimp and some red cherry from Gordon. I haven't had a lot of long term success with shrimp, other than Amanos, which are several years old in my display tank.

    I bought 15 orange shrimp in September of last year. I have sold 120 given traded 60 and I still have at least 80 adults and around 100 + tiny babies in the Flame moss. In a 10 gallon tank. I keep getting rid of a few and end up with more.
    Now my chocolates are berried can't wait to see the shrimplets in that tank.

    Hey Jeff, let me know if you are wanting to sell some. I would like to have some orange shrimp for a work tank.

    I have a few for sale right now but I am in Oshkosh. Not planning on any trips to Milwaukee any time soon. Maybe for the meeting in March.

    I plan of starting a couple of tanks for shrimp in 15s. It would be nice to keep two species in a tank that won't cross. Any ideas?
