    Been there, got the t-shirt. My daughter at about 3rd old did the same. I shoved every available air pump onto the tank and recovered 90% of my fish. They were all lying at the bottom not moving before that and one by one they came right except my cardinal tetra

    I don't wanna cause a stir...but it sounds to me like there's a hidden agenda behind all this if I have to read between the lines.

    The latest conservation Bill and/or Alien list has no shrimp on there...

    Which to me says that shrimp sales are gonna go through the roof...so if you can "scare" all your competition away before the rush comes...does that mean all the business comes your way? :scratch:

    I completely agree. While I like PetStop itself, I've never really liked Moolis.

    Well, the person with the permits could basically sell them for whatever they want as people will pay whatever they have to get shrimp. Also, I have no idea what he is on about in the threads. Did someone get a permit?

    Just double checked to make sure as well... have saved the government gazette for future reference. Even if it was prohibited or invasive (which it isn't) one could still keep them in their aquarium provided they are not released into the water systems, and then it would also depend on the classification set by the government. Class 1 and 2 are ok, only class 3 would need to be destroyed.
