I certainly was in the early days. It is why I really hated to loose anything at all. Now that we frag, it is much more sustainable and as more and more fish species are tank raised it is getting better.

I aquired most of my corals as rescues from the LFS and other hobbyists, so at least I feel I was saving something already collected at least.

When iv gone scuba diving, iv seen all these fish in their natural habitats, its terrible to think someone would just pick one up and stick in an aquarium..
Question,where do your brackish aquarium fish come from?

It's a grass shrimp of some kind either Hippolyte spp. or Palaemonetes spp. Kinda hard to tell but since it's green I'm
leaning towards Hippolyte. U could put it in a regular tank, depending on whats in it, they are a favorite food of a lot of fish. I would not put it in ur brine shrimp tank as it will probably go to town on them.

Even baby brine shrimp are too big for baby shrimp to eat. Mom might chow down. But unless you have Rotifers ready to go, they won't make it anyways. Fish food.

if its body is clear/cloudy and it has a green pouch under it.... my guess would be ghost shrimp honestly... dont know if they live in sw or not but thats a perfect description of a pregnant female ghost shrimp

Hate to mention it, but if it is a ghost shrimp, no one is gonna pick it up, they can be had for less than a dollar at most lfs
