      Hopefully someone may have what you want. In UK my supplier has marked all his shrimp as 'out of stock' but that isn't actually the case, I think they do this regularly when postal is REALLY busy, like now with xmas card and parcels so they don't like sending them during this time? You may see they come back in store in the new year if it is the same in US! If no one else comes forward you could try asking either of the businesses if you could buy some from them cheap, that they would be culling if you explain you want to TRY, maybe worth asking, they must cull some? If the culls are $3 from Bretz and the full price are 10 for $30 from flip, then flip culls should be cheaper as well, if they will sell them? Hopefully though some hobbyist close by may come to the rescue. Simon

      We really need to know the water parameters before we can give you advice. Ideally, you should have taken a reading of the original water parameters the shrimp came in. And compared it to your own tank parameters. Otherwise how would you know an hour and a half of drip acclimating is enough. The water in your tank can be on the opposite direction to the water the shrimp came in.

      OK so I bought 50 cherry shrimp on Thursday  December 13.  I drip accumulated them for bout 1 and a half hours during the drip I losted 1. The next day I saw two molt in the tank. On Saturday I saw 2 dead shrimps and about 3 more molt, Sunday more molts no death. Today Monday I saw another dead one should I be worry r is it normal for some to die off?  The tank is 29*18*18  40 gallons and have being up an running since last year with a couple guppies but now it's a shrimp only tank with mts, I don't know the parameters of the water I'm waiting for a master test kit but might get it this week or next

      I love watching Rob from flip Aquatics! I didn’t really want to pay that much yet since I don’t know how successful I will be. Quite a few of his items are out of stock right now anyway. LRBretz Aquatics actually sells mixed culls on his website but he is out of stock at the moment as well. That would be ideal. I was hoping someone here would have an abundance and need to rehome some for a small fee. Thank you for responding though.
