So, I found this incredible little aquatic store in Eugene, OR the other day during one of my trips down, and on top of the store having the most vast selection of anything you'd ever need for any sort of fish set up ever, they had the most incredible selection of shrimp! Every other pet store I'd been in before this one (I forget the name) had only carried ghost shrimp which I think are gross. So I went in looking for cherry shrimp - the only other type of shrimp I've become familiar with via the internet - and was amazed when I came across tanks of:
My mind was blown. I'd found the holy grail of shrimp. Sadly, I wasn't able to buy any for what I thought was the amazing price of 2 of any kind for 10 dollars. I'd have had to take them on a 6 hour car ride back to Everett and I didn't want to risk killing them all before arriving. I haven't given up on my quest for shrimp, however. I will just have to find something similar, but more local. Seattle must have something, right, because seriously, now that I've discovered them, I must own them. Especially the blueberry. Must own the blueberry.
Regardless, my fascination has grown and I'm curious to know what types of shrimp, if any, you all are familiar with, which you prefer, and what kinds you may have in your tanks. And lastly, where have you been able to find them?
