22 tanks for shrimp!! Well I suppose they are in smaller tanks than many of our tropical or Marine fish.

But why are shrimp so expensive to buy?
Red cherrys breed like crazy, when it comes to some of yours, are they that much harder to get to breed/raise, hence the prices are more?
Some of the sponsors on here charge €40 each or even €80 for 3 shrimp!

I know some fish cost a fortune, but they do get bigger and 1 fish does look good in a tank, but 1 shrimp looks stupid, so you need to buy a few.

Anyway, I really like your photos, thanks for posting them.

My tanks range from 25 L to 60 L.
Red cherries are really forgiving but most of my shrimp are not. It takes a bit of practice to understand their needs to ake them thrive. Once you know, they are less work to breed and raise than fish.
Lfs have overeads than hobbyist dont have so the prices are much higher.
Some shrimp in asia can cost in the thousand of dollars and people will happily pay that as they understand that a new strain of shrimp take years to create, my skunk took me 2 years and i bred 1000s to get only a few individals which are not breeding true yet :crazy:
Obviously shrimp is more my thing than fish so i wont comment on which should cost more :whistle:

Pinto is a breeding line from germany so you wont be making pintos by crossbreeding, you either buy some pintos or some f1 or both and breed them ;)
