Royal Blue Tiger Shrimp with Orange Eyes

Post  ShortyKiloGyrl on 2014-04-22, 16:29

I am looking into purchasing some royal blue tiger shrimp with orange eyes for a nano set up. However, most sales I find are in large groups and I don't have another tank I can put them into safely.

Does anyone know of a site I can get the individually at?

Or
Is anyone interested in splitting an auction with me and I will ship the others I do not wish to keep to you??

They unfortunately don't have them either. I also looked at shrimpusa.com and they are out of stock. I contacted a guy on aquabid since he is a invertebrates breeder and sells with good ratings to see if he would sell me a smaller group for the same price as shrimpusa offers them.

Yeah when I did a search on google the thread came up from here. But it looks like they haven't been on here in a while. :/

OEBTs are pretty picky about water conditions (very soft / acidic water and low TDS required) and don't breed true (they regularly throw "blondes" - normal-looking tiger shrimp). This is likely why it's tougher to find them readily available for sale. Good luck with them if / when you pick some up! I'm not brave enough to try them...  affraid

I was looking for royal blues, they have been bred with black tigers to create the darker ones. So they are a hybrid of sorts. They breed truer from what I'm reading. There is a seller in Oregon (the one I mentioned I emailed earlier) that breeds them and I have seen them on other sites but they are always gone before I can get to them. Sad
