Dehydrate them??? That's awful!!!! Shawna, if you are getting rid of them send me one, I've got a nice tank for him to live in by himself. I could use some entertainment at feeding time LOL

I'm giving them to one of the biology instructors at school. I thought I already said that. Hmm... Guess I didn't follow up. Sorry. Well, he wanted them. He's going to set up a tank for them, and study them.

I just got an email back from the store, and he said they're a freshwater prawn and they get to be 6-8" in size, and are quite aggressive. Duh. Yes. Thanks. I"m discovering that. LOL

Trust me, Huntress, you do NOT want one of these! LOL! Unless you want some kind of oddball predator, anyway. I can't wait to unload them.

You could always bait a trap for the shrimp...maybe with a squealing tiger barb Twisted Evil ....JK


If you end up shipping them, remember ot include a plastic plant for htem to cling to during the trip. Having there feet consistently on a flat bare surface stresses them.

Sure, he can live without one of them. I just don't know how to send it to ya, that's all. An ordinary Ziploc bag is gonna leak. A breathable bag would be ideal, but I don't know where I can get just ONE of those. If you have any ideas, lay 'em on me.
