Why does everyone keep saying that?
In their native enviroment, they're found in freshwater all the way to double-strength seawater.

A tbsp of marine salt per 4 gallons helps them breed and is safe on most plants, but they'll do okay in plain fresh if you use drip acclimitization.

Does anyone know how to contact EpicFish about the RCS? I might be able to work something out with him/her.

from everything that i have read they favor the brackish water and breed in brackish. also their eggs hatch into larval stages so that makes it hard.

never stop learning, as new things are discovered everyday.

i know what you mean. i have them breeding atm so i might just let them breed for a little then diversify stock and maybe do a trade out with someone else. that way i am not over breeding the same stock and maybe add some rili shrimp.

Well if anyone gets a hold of EpicFish, please ask him/her to PM me or maybe contact me via email. I would love 20 or so, but wanting to wait until the winter weather is over. Also wanting to see if he/she will work with me on paymeant type. Sounds like a reputable breeder, so prepaying wouldn't bother me if it was needed.
