Has anyone been trading in cherry shrimp at their LFS for credit? I'm considering this now that my cherry breeding program is in full swing, however, I'm worried that they will cut me out once they get a shipment or two.
Ever thought about putting them in the classifieds on this site? I'm sure there are some people out there who would be interested in buying them from you or even trading some decent, (hard to find at your LFS) plants for them.

They should ship pretty well as long as it isn't too cold. When/if you ship them, put in a bit of moss (java or whatever) as they like to hold on to it.

Mat, I'm not really too excited about shipping them but if I can't find a LFS willing to barter, that will be my only recourse. I'm looking for new equipment so that is why I wanted to trade them in at the LFS.
Shipping shouldn't be too tough, they are pretty hardy!

I don't know about your LFS but my old one would only give me 1/2 of what they would sell them for...then they have the guts to charge double what the online dealers do for equipment and supplies. I would sell them and then buy my equipment/supplies online...unless it was a really good LFS :) Those a few and far between these days.

I've watched the Cherry Reds get upwards of $30 for a dozen of them on Aquabid. That would definately make it worth my effort to try and sell them.
