Beautiful Shrimp

Flip Aquatics has top quality shrimp. This was my 3rd order from them. My shrimp all arrived alive and healthy. I have an entire different view on aquatics because of these guys at Flip.

Good specimens

Ordered 10 snowball shrimp which arrived well packaged and healthy. There were were mostly adult sized with 1-2 younger specimens. Will certainly order here again in the future.

Snowball Shrimp

Ordered 10 of these guys and they all arrived alive despite USPS saying they delivered it on Friday and actually delivering it on Saturday. Pretty sure that they sat in the truck overnight in nice hot 80+ evening in Houston and then nice 90+ day time temperature. Despite all that, they survived and have started breeding like crazy. Pretty sure all the females are berried now. They're very entertaining little guys.
