    Which is why Trevor never activates his message functions :p

    Now all of a sudden the 200 plus Amano's in the possession of the Centurion mafia seems...well...unimpressive...LOL

    You need to make sure that your water is within taiwan bee spec, I would only use mineralized RO water.

    It goes without saying they don't come cheap, especially the extremes ...

    35$ per shrimp in the US and that's usually from asian stock, double it for SA :)

    It's happening, just be patient, but winning the lotto will go a long way to paying for them :)
    Will post more pics at some point.

    Depends on what CRS quality are you after and the budget ?

    Gumtree grade like these I originally bought, tough as nails and breed almost like cherries..

    IMG_2977.JPG

    or something classier and higher grade, the original brood stock from a renowned german breeder, so naturally they will cost
    many times more..

    Ideally you need blue tigers or OEBT .. with tbs, the one little hurdle being that the blue tigers prefer harder more alkaline water than the tbs. Then once you get your F1s the fun and games start with the F2 mystery packages which gets even more fun with F3s !

    Not there yet, but no mad rush ..
