    I'm about to order some more of these guys. If anyone else wants to get in, let me know. The more I order, the cheaper it gets per shrimp.

    I could chip in for some if you still have extras.

    Sorry guys. I just got a message from the seller. Apparently, he had some sort of family emergency. He just got back into town last night and can't ship until Tuesday. I'll keep you posted when I get more info.

    How did the order go? Did you get what you wanted and what's eating them?

    Unfortunately, the weather in Florida was hot and about half of them died before they got here. The seller threw in some bonus items (pipefish and larger shrimp). Those succumbed as well.

    Of the grass shrimp that survived, several jumped out through the mesh lid of my aquarium, many were eaten by my fish (pajama cardinals, starry blenny, dartfish, and maybe even the mystery wrasse), about 20 were hanging out on the back wall of the aquarium but have since been eaten or relocated, and a handful have been spotted hiding in my rock.

    The seller is sending me some more to make up for the loss. Apparently, the weather is cooler there this week. So, hopefully we'll get a better mortality rate.

    What a crazy experience! Hope the next shipment works out. I am looking to start growing some reef foods, if they start reproducing in your tank, please let me know!
