so I was @ the lfs and they have this planted tank with some small fish and these really bright red shrimp in there. not sure what kind they are but any help is appreciated very interested. Ill end up going back to take a pic of the tank cause I think it looks really nice and I take a pic of the shrimp as well.

RCS can vary greatly in color depending on lots of things. Water conditions, substrate color, selective breeding and the females are usally much more vibrant than the males. Hard to tell for sure, best bet is to go back to your LFS. Im sure there is at least one person there who is crazy about shrimp and can give you a for sure answer :)

Its not as difficult as it sounds, I just use 10 gal tanks and make sure the water parameters are right for each individual type. Same as with fish, You either buy them for your water type or you do the extra work to make the tank fit the fish you want.

that's cherry... good starting shrimps for shrimp keeping. Aquabid have good deals there so I would suggest you started there. Or some one you knew here or even the last person above for a trade. Do more search on them before you start, they are not that easy but not that hard either once you had some understanding on shrimps.

ok its been a while but i finally got pics of that tank with the shrimp in it, but there were more shrimp lastime and they were more red but I could only see 1. also Im waiting for the other pics i took to show up in my email.
