Just don't get into the more difficult and sensitive ones when the weather is extreme. Watch your weather for a week where temps are mild. Ask your LFS to bring some in for you.
Or order them from Invertebrates by Msjinkzd on FB.
Thanks, and also there is someone on eBay selling 10 for $20 but they said that they are mixed with cherry shrimp and fire red shrimp? And instead of putting java moss they put Taiwan moss? Is that stuff good?

You should be able to get cherries for $1.00 a piece. The fires are just brighter cherries, which may command a slightly higher price. Iit's nice to have different mosses if you like them. They are all somewhat different.

Hmm, that sounds like a good price! A lot of other people are selling them for over $3 a piece though!!!

Ok, I ordered 30 cherry shrimp, they were a dollar each but shipping was 12 so it ended up being $42!! But oh well.. I guess.. If they breed I have unlimited, right?

Anytime you have something shipped, it is going to cost....just about. To me, I believe it is necessary to have them overnighted, which usually costs me at least double what you are paying or more. Especially when the temps are severe, like now. Heat packs do not last all that long. And if they are very far, always remember temps in the cargo hold of a plane are generally at least -20 degrees than ground temps.Cherries are pretty tough.
Hope it all goes well.

I hope too. They are way in Florida. And the weather is perfect here in AZ! So.. Ya...
And I was just about used to free shipping from Amazon and eBay XD

They came today! Some of them are actually red and others looks ghostly from the trip :) but I put the really little ones in a 1 gallon and the larger ones in my 20, would African dwarf frogs eat them? Are they temperature sensitive? The 1 gallon has no heater

Wow, I feel like I'm in trouble now.. So all the RCS are in a 1 gallon with an under gravel filter and a little heater. This is because my 20 gallon would be perfect except for the fact that it has ADF's who would eat them, they are all pretty small right now and alive :) but the 30 gallon still has the medical problems, I turned the temperature back to normal today, because I haven't seen any ich for a few days, but now one of dwarf gourami's had white spots... Dang... I'm out of ich treatment too. I'm turning it back up now. I put maybe 3 shrimp in there out of the 30 I have to test it out, I can't really find them but at least one made it though the night. I don't want them all dying because they were $42 and there aren't returns. I have large rocks in my 30 gallon as well so I don't think the frogs would do well in there. And the 20 has higher nitrates from some dead plant matter so I'm not sure if that's a problem..
