Thanks for the recommendations. I work in Newport News and might slip over to Richmond soon. Do you know if they have RCS? None of the stores I found in the beach have them, at least the 4 or 5 that I've been haven't.

Deckape - Animal Jungle has them, but they are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. I think it was $6/shrimp. I bought four, and one died immediately when I brought them home.

I didn't see them there.. thanks but I am gonna boycott them I think. I am sick of their attitudes. But I really didn't see them. I may go the aquabid route. But I didn't wanna pay shipping. Several auctions offer free shipping. It will be a while. I want to get a 20 or 30 gallon planted and make it a shrimp only tank. Then I could give all of you some after they breed.

Yeah, they are in the middlemost tropical fish aisle in the small tanks. But I think boycotting is admirable, especially after all of our negative experiences.

Let me know how the aquabid route goes. I've bought five fish off aquabid sellers and haven't had a bad experience yet.

I will. Thanks for answering the aquabid question for me. It will be a while though. Do you have planted tanks? I may need mentorship.

I have planted tanks but I'm no expert. I just bought some of those plants that come in tubes at Petsmart. So far I have some Kyoto (sp?) grass, some anubias, and some other ones that I don't recall the names of. I also have some watersprite that I bought from Animal Jungle. My betta loves to sit in the watersprite, but some parts appear to be rotting in my 37 gal.

You can see some pictures of my tank in this link: 37 gallon - 37 gallon Freshwater fish tank

And here is my 5 gal betta tank:
5 gallon - 5 gallon Freshwater fish tank

I got some amazon swords in my discus tank. I have had no luck with any other plants but i think I would need a double tube fixture for them. But the swords stay green and healthy
