New RCS tank

At least I think theyre RCS...the one store I got a few at said they were Blood Shrimp but that didn't seem right and they look identical to the 'Cherry Shrimp' the other store had. I currently have 5 of these guys and two are about ready to hatch eggs! However my small male is missing at the moment. I had a filter issue yesterday which killed one of my previous shrimp but the little guys definitely not stuck in there and I couldn't find him on any of the plants. Hopefully he'll come out of hiding later on

I think it's the fire red cherry shrimp.

That's what I was thinking after looking around but I wasn't quite sure. Either way, I think they're adorable little guys!

Thank you! I'm not sure because I took the pic in a hurry, but that may be one of my berried girls.

Great find!! I've been trying to find them and have a tank cycled and ready to put them in but can't get any LFS around here to order any for me . I can't find them anywhere... That's awesome they had them in your LFS!!

Actually two of mine did! The two berried are from a different shop than the first few but they all seem to get along~ I did lose one just yesterday though. I think it was trying to molt and didn't make it out. Though there are 2 shells as well so I'm assuming the others molted successfully. And none of your LFS have any? That's so sad Have you considered Aquabid or some of the Ebay sellers?
