You may get tiny ones so it could be good to ask how big they are. I bought mine at the LFS so I could pick and choose.
lol poor guy that had to fish out the specific shrimps out of a tank fiulled with em. i feel for some of those guys that are helping a partent and young child with getting a specifi fancy tail guppy out of a tank full of 40 of them lol
