Looking for Crystal Red Shrimp in Central TX

Hi all,
I've got the dwarf shrimp bug.
I love my ghost shrimp at home and I have a cool long cylinder clear vase at work already planted and cycled and looking for some crystal red shrimp for it.
It holds about 2 gallons and plants are doing well. They will be the only inhabitants.

1st - Does anyone within my state care to sell some? 2nd - Has anyone heard of using marine iodine to help young molting shrimp? I read that in an article online.
Thanks for any help.

I am not sure I would keep CRS in a tank that small. They are so sensitive to changes in temperature and water quality, I am afraid they might not last long. They almost certainly would not breed in a tank that size.

I think RCS would be a good choice, however... just my 2 cents.

If you decide to go with them anyway, I have had excellent luck using aquabid.com and ebay.com for all kinds of shrimp, including CRS.

Thanks for the quick reply and tip on font size. oopsy. Okay so, I should look for what minimum size tank for CRS ownership? Would a 10g be large enough?
Thanks again.

10g would be great for CRS. I keep them in a 5.5, which is about as small as I would go for CRS. Any of the neocaridina species though like RCS could do very well in even smaller tanks.

I'm thinking now that I will recycle the old Glass umbrella stand instead of the vase. Like a mini commercial aquarium. Anyone been to "the Aquarium" downtown Houston? Awesome!
