I'm looking for freshwater shrimps, colorful and non-agressive ones that can be put in my discus tank. Not too big(<4") not too small (>1") Any suggestions?

Where can I buy them? My LFS does not have that many options. All I have are banboo shrimps (not really colorful) from PetCo or ghost shrimps from PetSmart (too small).

Anyone selling them?

you should check out this website devoted to the freshwater shrimp hobby. they have information on various species and you can buy them there. many of the shrimp species on that website aren't going to show up much if at all in most LFS

cherry shrimp are colorful but the best looking shrimp IMO is crsystal red shrimp, I have never seen them at my lfs but if I do I will by a good moneys worth right off the bat.
