Hahaha, I always have thoughts and opinions.
A brief of them would be try the less expensive ones first.
It is always rewarding breeding and having a thriving shrimp colony. If at the point you have been successful and learned the routine and care of the little guys, decide which ones you would like to try next.
During the year you might have the Cherry Shrimp, your ideas may change anyway to a new variant and you might be faced with changing colonies anyway, for the new group.
But. If you are planning to use the same exact tank, you may find you can't quite get all the babies from the original Cherries removed from the tank. Then there could be neos mixing and diluting / changing the colors of your shrimp. Though you could always remove any shrimp which grows up / is eventually big enough to see, and is obviously not the new color.
If you have a matured and stable tank more than a few months old you may be more successful at starting with a higher quality color and price point. And if you have kept tanks in the past and have a good previous success rate with maintaining a stable and healthy environment, and can devote the necessary time with a busy schedule / anticipated life plan in the future.
You can always find someone looking to buy any type of Cherry shrimp in your local area. Pricing may vary but the average common price had been about $1.00 each for young pre adult to adult shrimp. Hobby business have more invested and need more money to get out usually. And future prices like everything probably will be going up. Getting more locally bred shrimp is usually a really great option! Less stressful for the shrimp and generally make the transition more easily.
So you would easily be able to make back some money if your shrimp keeping works out well.
When I started shrimp, I wanted 2 specific kinds and I have had both. It went okay and it made me very happy. But over the past 10 years I have a good variety and it hasn't always went perfectly. Many times whole groups of shrimp didn't make the acclimation transition. And I wouldn't even want to try and count how much money I have spent on the hobby.
Overall it makes me very happy! (there are struggles but experience, of your own and that of others sure helps)
And back to deciding future shrimp upgrades, creating a new tank isn't always smooth sailing, sometimes it takes a good deal of time and preparation to get it stabilized.
The more fancy stuff you use like special substrates with high nutrients, high lighting and CO2
and specialized ferts, high need plants, and more delicate line bred shrimps, the more areas for headaches there are.
So low tech and simple set ups, can really be your shrimps friend starting out.
