Ya my thought is how happy would you be if someone plucked you from the world where you get to go where you want when you want and eat whatever you want(endless options) and have sex with who you want and then all of a sudden your in a jail cell where you only eat every so often and certain food and no sex. You wouldn't be very happy.

It is a shrimp after all. I agree with taking creatures from the ocean in certain cases being a bad idea, but shrimp are plentiful and reproduce on a massive scale. While his life in the wild may be great, he is also probably going to get eaten by a predator soon.

you can keep it in a saltwater fish tank, but it might not do well in a brine shrimp tank.
it really depnds on how you have it set up
and most people setup brine shrimp like a factory
I would let it go unless you have a saltwater tank

Most of the fish, shrimp, coral, etc, that you buy from internet or lfs, come straight from the ocean.

But noboday can change that. We can controll what WE do, and that isnt our place. Putting a wild shrimp in a fish tank will kill it quicker then any predator, and if i were the shrimp, id gladly be eaten first. And ya they reproduce quickly, but thats not the point. 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..

I am also a diver and have come to love fragging corals so I don't have to collect from the wild. If you feel this way, why are you in the hobby at all?

I guess i am a hypocrite. I just could never take anything from the ocean myself. But i don't even have the option so I'll keep my mouth zipped!
