Are shrimp keepers interested in keeping Aegla? I plan on getting some and breeding them but not sure if there is a demand. Pictures are form google:

This is a restricted specie and no demand for them.
.... :/ where is it restricted? Not in Canada apparently... is it endangered? Or threatened? Or do people eat them? Don’t take me the wrong way I would never offer or own an illegal species but I have never heard about this... while regardless I won’t send to USA Iam guessing and will do my home work. But if you could offer some info and insight I would be so thankful.
