Snowballs in June?

The snowball shrimp were great quality as usual from Flip Aquatics. They are on the small side for Neos but that's what I wanted for my Nano setup. Thanks folks!

Almost gave up!

Pretty sure I got 13. 35 gal Heavily planted tank. Shrimp were in a floating cup to adjust to water. All good. Releast shrimp into tank. Saw 1 or 2 for a little while. Never saw another one for 10 days. I thought maybe a large female guppy was eating them. Put her in another tank. Shrimp started slowly coming out. Now I see them regularly. Great addition.

Very active little shrimp!

I ordered 10 of these shrimp and received 12. One little guy didn't make it but the rest of them seem really good. I can't wait to see them become full grown. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!

I cannot thank you, folks, enough. The shrimps are gorgeous and healthy and packaged well and that also goes for the other non-livestock products I ordered. I have already put in another order because of my confidence in your service and products. I will be recommending your store to any shrimp hobbyist I come across. Again, many thanks for the service extraordinaire!
