Not often that Mr Shrimp is out to play, so I had to shoot a few pics to share...






He is such a colourful addition to the tank - peaceful and fascinating to watch - I never specifically feed him, he just wafts particles from the water. The reason he's out today is I've just done a water-change - lots of stuff for him to waft!

He's very nice Mogwai. Is he from a lfs or from somewhere else? I've been wanting to get one or two of these myself.

How have your plants been holding up? I used to have a blue lobster that I put in my planted tank and he just tore the place up. After the first night all my plantes were clipped up and floating on the surface. Does yours do the same to plants?

Oh I guess yours' is more shrimp than crayfish. I wouldn't mind getting one of those for my tank if it doesn't ravage my plants.

He's a Cameroun Fan shrimp - they don't have claws like crayfish, they have little fans that waft particles into their mouths.
Plums - he came from the Aquatic Habitat in Gloucester - whereabouts are you? He was

Go get yourself one - you won't regret it! Just a shame that they tend to hide away a lot. Very Happy
