Neocaridina / Price Expectation For Neo's
February 13, 2019, 03:02:58 am
Hiya People,

Just been browsing online relative to Red Cherry Shrimp (red ones) looking to purchase a few more perhaps.

Yes, mine are breeding extremely well but I'm inclined to think including a new line of the same strain will improve things somewhat and having sold a few, am always interested in what people perceive as being appropriate pricing.

That being said, I would like to ask what everyone thought were fair prices for the following:

  • Cherry Adult Juveniles

  • Cherry Adult

  • Sakura Adult Juveniles

  • Sakura Adult

  • Fire Red Juveniles

  • Fire Red Adults

  • Painted Fire Red Juveniles

  • Painted Fire Red Adults

Just price red shrimp presently, we will look at the others in due course but imagine you were selling yours on Gumtree, Petlink, eBay or similar, what would be a fair price to the hobbyist after his efforts and costs and what what be a fair price to the buyer do you think?

just google the text it shows up on lots of forum and blogs. just a bot causing trouble.

Had a look sabertooth and the text does appear in a few places but I don't believe its a bot per se.

Bots don't usually respond to verification emails, its more like an individual trying to get their message out.

I have sent them a PM explaining things and asking for a reply, in the meantime as long as its in the right area, does not cause trouble and we accept it for what it is, I don't think there should be an issue.

If it turns out I'm incorrect, let me know and I'll deal with it ... cheers.

Na, This is not a real user, fake.

Good call sabertooth and thanks for the heads up.   8)

I'm inclined to agree that this particular user is presently more interested in promoting their own agenda than having much interest in shrimp BUT lots of forums attract lots of spammy users and that's a fact of life as we know it today.

I really don't wish Shrimp-Attack to be one of those forums with lots of inflexible rules and where you have to salute every time a mod goes by, I recognize that there are all types of individuals in the world, which is why I created the 'Random Ads' and 'Sell your Wares' board ... to actually accommodate that precise type of user and and give them somewhere to post (kinda like a graffiti wall), rather than ban/kick anyone.

Mind you, if it's warranted then that course of action mostly certainly an option, but I prefer that to be a last resort.

This person went to the trouble of registering an account and posting a howdy, so lets give them the benefit of the doubt, move them to the correct board and who knows, maybe they develop an interest in our little hobby and start a shrimp tank AND just maybe someone posts about something, someone here might actually be interested in, wouldn't be the first time for me.   :)

I'll send them a PM outlining expectations but in the meantime I would like to welcome MuoiLizott to Shrimp-Attack and hope they gain some appreciation of what we see in keeping dwarf shrimp.   ;D

Regards ... SnappaGuy.
Please Read / Apologies For The Site Being Down.

Hello Everyone,

Apologies if you tried to login and found the site was down.

Its happened a few times now and is due to issues with the present hosting provider who cannot assure me the problems are addressed longer term.

That being said, I am looking at alternate providers with a view to moving to a more stable environment in the near future.

Regards ... SnappaGuy.
