    Hello From SD - new to forum but not nano shrimp

    Hi everyone in the scape forum - I am new to here and look forward to connecting to other Sulawesi shrimp enthusiasts. My short story - I started the hobby 5 years ago with a nano tank and cherries and after frequenting my local aquarium shops found a tank with Cardinal shrimp - I was hooked. after a few failed attempts I was finally able to get a colony going which has is going strong after 3.5 - 4 years. I love the hobby and not interested in breeding but I cannot find any other Sulawesi breeds here in San Diego and I 'm very interested in branching out to yellow cheeks -harlequins etc. but cannot find any locally or even in the US anymore. I know about ordering to Canada and overseas - however, the shipping and import costs are far too expensive for me to justify a smaller order. If anyone on this forum has any insight or info on shops who have other Sulawesi varieties or small breeders who sell occasionally that would be awesome! Happy to share any tips with my success with my Cardinal colony etc. and general Sulawesi shrimp stuff Thanks and looking forward to the scape forum! Cheers

    Welcome! I had a very short run with cardinals back when i knew nothing about dwarf shrimp. i was giving away some trimmings and the guy surprised me with a couple cardinals. Not know anything i just added them to my 75g community thinking it was fine since my amanos never ran into issues with the fish and they got torn apart instantly by my rainbows...
