testing waters to see if there is anyone who is willing to send asterina stars to me and how much people want for them. I'm looking into getting harlequin shrimp and am looking for a supply before I go through with the purchase. I have checked with my lfs and some friends who are in the hobby but with no luck so far.

thanks,

Charlotte,
I had many, probably over 350.. Then I got an harlequin shrimp. In about 9 month all of them were gone and I returned the shrimp to my LFS, as it would have starve. There must have been a few left, so the stars number are increasing again. You will need a lot of stars, if you want to keep the shrimp long term. It is a beautiful shrimp, and I enjoyed having it. I may start the process over.
Where do you live? I would give you some of mine, but I do not want to ship.

I'm in northern Virginia, I've been reading asterinas aren't the move so I'm thinking of using choc chip instead, but I'd like to have a small colony for just in case purposes. I'm planning on breeding them so I'm going to need a lot lol

I'm probably pretty close to you- can't say I have hundreds but I've been constantly pulling them out recently. I could try collecting them in an acclimation box and seeing if they survive long enough for you to take them. PM me if you want
