So I was thinking about getting some cherry shrimp for my tank. I have two problems though....

Problem #1-- I don't know how many to get.....I have a 20 gallon high, with 2 dwarf gouramis and 10 tetra's (5 neon & 5 green fire).

Problem #2-- Nobody around here sells them....only ghost shrimp and i'm not really interested in those. Anyone know where I can get some at a decent price? I don't even know what they normally cost in an lfs.

How about asking Algenco? He still has his ad up in classified.

$4.59 ea! And they'll want you to use express shipping, another $20+

Exactly, use Algenco, i just bought shrimp from him last week, everything i was expecting and more at a almost utopian-price.

Thanks everyone! I Pmed him!

Btw....can anyone tell me the basic care for these guys? I've been reading a little about them....but I haven't seen anything about how you introduce them to the tank. Do you float them like you would fish, if so how long?

acclimate as you would fish, I like the drip method
