DIRT CHEAP CRS! And shrimp food/supplement samples!


Recommended Posts

September Shrimp Sale - limited quantities available - I am shipping THIS Saturday 9/28, all orders must be paid for by Friday night, otherwise I will ship Sunday or next weekend. Please email me at kalnight@aol.com as I may not check messages here throughout the day.

I'm trying to 'cull' my tank to get down to only B and C grades. Which means I have a lot of A-SSS grades available. But I do not feel like picking and choosing. I have good quality of each grade and I also have cull quality of each grade. Basically I'm going to net whatever has the most white, any quality. This will be a GREAT way for folks wanting to try CRS to get into them without spending a fortune.

These will be anywhere from peewee, subadult and adult sizes (only one or two adults to jump start your breeding). By 'peewee' that means anywhere from 1/4"-1/2" so realize some of these will be small. Babies tend to adapt better to differing parameters and ship better as well.

10 for $45 shipped Priority pack (that's a little over $3 per shrimp...yes imagine a SSS grade for $3.50). For Express Mail contact me for quote.

6 shrimp for $35 shipped Priority.

Ice packs available for $1 each, DOAS are only covered if ice packs are used if you're anywhere where it's going to be above 75-80 degrees at the time of shipment. Shrimp do fine getting cold, getting hot, not so much. Photos of shrimp still in the bag must be taken within 1 hour of receiving and sent to me.

I ONLY SHIP LIVESTOCK ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS (yes, my post office is open on Sundays, shipping starts this weekend September 27). I do no shipping during the week unless it's foods/samples.

My parameters are as follows (I have kept these in varying conditions so am listing params as to what they've been in in the last 6 months)

pH 6.6-6.8
GH 5-6
KH 0-2
TDS 160-185
Temp 72-74 F
