    Yes..I know the thread is 2yrs old..but c328 prices no change! Hurray!!!
    Bigger shrimps actually tend to be abit more risky to intro into a new tank... they do look nicer as their colors are fully developed, but their molt intervals are further apart so may have more difficulty adapting to new water conditions, plus they are older (might already be 1-2 years old) so getting much closer to expiry.

    The younger/juvenile shrimps tend to be more hardy, not much color yet but they molt more often so can adapt to changes in water conditions better.
