BOOM AND BUST?
I must say I’m a bit disappointed with how the ‘shrimpy’ side of the hobby seems to have died a death. As someone who caught the ‘golden age’ of shrimp keeping, when new strains were coming out monthly, and there was an excitement to see what would appear next, I must say I find the current selections in store to be a bit of a poor show.
I wonder how much of it is down to how easy they are to breed? Mine bred, and hybridised, non-stop. I guess with so many people breeding them and flooding the market, the people trying to make money out of it struggled and gave up.
