I'll ask about for you.. I may know some peeps who have shrimp...
They can have upto 30-50 babies each time depending on the age of the females... you may lose some here and there to celestials as the babies are tiny but you will always have enough over for the population to boom ;) ;)
I find 15 quid quite expensive... but it is kind of an investment...once yours have bred and you have loads over you can also start selling..I have at least 5-6 buyers every month and on top of that give loads away for free and I still keep plenty over in the celestial tank.

Turkey algenco does not ship over seas
Jess asking about for me would be great! do you know some people in the u.k with them then? Also thanks for answering q's. I did find it expensive too compared to algenco but then again the u.s is cheaper i spose.
I cant wait till i start finding babies. I have that massive clump of java moss that is spreading out over tonnes of driftwood well you'll see when i post pics of the completed tank but its gonna look great and provide so much cover.
