Cherry Shrimp cost anywhere from $2-$5 each.
Well, that may be a big gamble for shrimp. From what I know these guys arrive very tiny and many don't live or even survive the trip. So that makes them expensive when a person orders 10 to get only five that survive and raise to maturity.

I have over 70, so the cost of them escapes me. ?

@corylover5 - yes, it would be ok to start with a group of 10.
