Breeding Red Cherry Shrimp!
Not sure if this should go under breeding... or inverts so it went under inverts. If I'm in the wrong section please move me moderators!
Anyhow down to my question... I am thinking of raising red cherry shrimp OR Glass shrimp (Ghost shrimp) for my LFS. I was in there today and she was talking about how she wished she had more GS or even the ability to stock RCS but she said it wasn't possible at all for the RCS because it cost her almost 2.25$ a shrimp, and tring to sell them for even 3.00$ each was nearly impossible. So I struck a deal with her if I could get them to breed 1.00$ a shrimp, and she could resell for 1.75-2.00$ a shrimp pretty easily. And as for the ghost shrimp she has those now for 0.47$ Each, and said if I started suppling her with a good number weekly/ bi-weekly she'd buy them for 0.15$ each. So I am tring to help out a local fish shop.. the only one I know of within 50miles besides 4 wal-marts and 2 petcos
So the question... after my rambling story above is.. which would be easier to keep, I do wish to try both, but one at a time. I have a 10Gallon tank that is empty (just found it when cleaning my shed.) and I have a perfect place to put it under my community tank (95G) inside the stand. I have access to run all wires needed and pleanty of room to do water changes, adjustments as needed, and for lights to sit in there since I plan to heavily plant it.
Well thanks in advance for any ad all helpful information!
