    Cherry Shrimp

    Very nice Shrimp. All healthy and alive living the #shrimplife

    Great little guys!

    I ordered 15 shrimp (5 cherries, 5 yellow, and 5 blue), and they all arrived safe and sound. The staff also was great at communicating with me about delays in the shipment due to causes out of their control. I'm definitely buying from them again.

    I really like the Cherry Shrimp! They are Great little Gabage cleaners and very active. Just make sure to put them where you want them, because you'll NEVER net them, again!

    Ordered 20, arrived in 2 days from ordering. All very alive and larger than I expected which is great. A week later and they are all still going strong.


    Arrived alive and they are doing well, thank you!
