So what would be a fair price to sell red cherry shrimp (fire red grade, although I don't think it will make a difference) to a lfs? I think they retail at lfs in my area for $4 to $5.

Dont know about fair but if I owned a LFS I wouldnt offer any more then $1.50 and possibly only store credit. It would also depend on how much I paid at the supplier and I'm guessing its somewhere between a 200% to 300% markup.

Good question. Probably won't get a lot. I assume they get them in bulk at a food price.

I was thinking a dollar a shrimp would be excellent. It's a private store that apparently doesn't have any invertebrates.

If it somewhere you often shop and are willing to take store credit I would let them know just to increase your chances
