Default CRS group buy?

Hey guys,
As mentioned earlier in last meeting: I have a friend in LA who wants to get rid of his grade A CRS since he needs room to focus on breeding higher grades (just based on current popular rules). He is asking for $10 a piece shipped, a discount might be available if we get all his grade A ones(20-30 shrimps). Here is a link to help identify how a grade A looks like: CRS grading guide - The Planted Tank Forum


I actually was in his fishroom 3 days ago and saw some amazing CRS, so his grade A shrimps could actually carry very good genes. See pic: http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n...6-10-03061.jpg

Max,

Cool thanks for letting me know.
When is the deadline or when do you plan on ordering?

Did you tell CrazyCanuck?

Hey Frank,
Please let me know by end of this coming weekend, I am thinking to have the shrimps arrive right before our Dec. 9th meeting so we can split the order at the meeting. And also can you forward this groupbuy info to CrazyCanuck(didn't find this ID on APC)? Currently, there are still 15 CRS available for order.

Are they as easy to keep and breed as Cherry Reds?
I'm just now getting into them and they are very easy and adaptable.

CRS/BEE are little bit more sensitive to water parameters/wastes compared to Cherry Red. But as long as you have a stable tank with clean water, CRS should do fine. As for breeding, the population growth rate can't compete with Cherry that's for sure...) An aboundant supply of nourishment(food and even liquid vitamin) will boost the growth rate though.


Btw, has anyone seen any BumbleBee shrimp in our LFS? I usually keep CRS and BumbleBee in the same tank to create interesting visual effect, and most importantly....they don't cross-breed...at least not that I am aware.

I don't have anywhere for them to live right now. If someone was interested in housing a few for me (I assume all associated risk ) I'd order a few.

I'd love some, but the timing isn't right. My 2.5 gal shrimp farm crashed last weekend. Saturday everything was great. Woke up Sunday, all my livestock were dead; Cherry shrimp, snails, grammarus, everything. I think they suffocated. The grandkids, niece and nephew were playing with the tank during the Thanksgiving weekend and I found the nanofilter partially unplugged and not running Sunday morning.

Oh well.

Cheers.
Jim

Sounds like everyone's worst tank related nightmare. Sorry to hear about it Jim.

Frank: Ok, I will order 6 for you. Not sure how much discount we can get(probably won't go lower than $9 each). But 6 shrimps are sufficient enough to start a population anyway.

Erin: Do you plan to have a shrimp only tank very soon? If so, then I can keep some for you.

Jim: Sorry to hear your loss. I believe some of us will successfully get the CRS to reproduce, and we should be able to get some extra to share with you in the near future.


So far, Matt wants 10 and Frank wants 6. I will get some higher grade ones myself. Anyone else?
