Well… I don’t have enough shrimp yet to think about selling any but…. the thought has crossed my mind that in a few months I may have enough to sell. In fact, I’m so jazzed about the dwarf shrimp I’m thinking about a shrimp species tank (right now I’m leaning towards yellow shrimp there…. ) Although I don’t have any yellow shrimp (yet?).

They seem such fun critters…. it’s so neat to see the males surfing around the tank and they’re a great cleanup crew. I don’t know how many times I asked for them at our LFS and they told me they sell out fast when they get them. I bought mine on ebay and took notes as to how things were packaged. To my knowledge I didn’t have one shrimp die in the shipping/establishing phase. (Although there may have been a couple snacked upon….)

So, long story short…. I may be opening a separate web page that would be devoted to selling the dwarf shrimp. Mostly the neocaridina shrimp such as the yellow, red cherry and blue pearl. But… I’ve been looking at the crystal red shrimp as well…. who knows maybe a year or two down the road? I’ll announce here if and when I setup a standalone site for the shrimp. I expect first that I would probably do a couple of test sales to get my sea legs with shipping them.
