It is! Especially if you are paying $500 for a single shrimp! Adult shrimp are way more intolerant of change than younger ones.

Zombie? Well his neighbor did bite his fins off. He is the one in my siggy who is supposed to be a HM IF his fins ever grow back without them being nommed on. He was swimming toward the surface when I took the pic.

Kenetic - I met some pony collectors in real life but that was way before FiM.
I want ponies at my wedding.

Olympia, is that $500 for freshwater or saltwater?

I have seen high prices for bonded pairs of saltwater shrimp.

Okay so I'm confused. Are we supposed to wear blue tomorrow or green and white? There was a Facebook picture that said green and white are the school colors but some people on here have said blue. So what is it?!

Hmm I thought I went over this before.
Black King Kong Shrimp - (1) - Elite Inverts Store
Here they are cheaper now. :p
" In 2009 a pair sold for $8500.00 but the price has dropped to a mere fraction making them more reasonable for the experienced breeder."
