    No you haven't,

    Why were the banned, do you feel better about yourself now or later.?

    The well known shop illegally imported shrimp on many occasions and I'm sure you fully aware of this.

    Don't play ignorant, get rid of yours and I'll do the same.

    Or even better be an advocate for the exact reasons you selling your imports to fellow members

    The message being conveyed is that Local breeders need to be commended, but importers need to be condemned. Ignoring the technicalities of the law, are they both not selling the same product, and does a locally bred shrimp not pose the same risk as an imported one?

    I think Trevor is very knowledgeable on this importation matter and gave us a good clarification.
    From what you are saying, the ones I bought from this shop were imported illegally, I was not aware of this.
    If it's the case,I have no problem getting rid of my 2 adults.

    Now you are publicly accusing me to sell my imports, what are you talking about?
    All the shrimps I have, I bought them locally and I never imported any shrimps.
    Technically all ornamental shrimps were imported at some point, none by me.
    If they become illegal to keep I will get rid of them, I did the same with the CPO crayfish I bought last year after I found out we can't keep them.
    I don't keep shrimps for profit, actually it cost me a lot.
    I buy locally and when I have a few extra babies I do sell some. Nothing to hide here.

    I don't see the point trying to create a fight with me.

    These are very different, my last female gone a chocolate colour and successfully moulted. There's about 20 or more shrimplets though.

    Nice Amano find!

    Guys go do the leg work and go catch your own shrimp locally in Cape town area a few farm dams have got healthy populations of shrimp that were introduced as food by some fools i guess for club fishing comp bait etc .
    No I'm not telling which dams so please don't ask .
