I really did considered getting one, but my LFS insisted that its not a good idea so I got a fire shrimp instead. After reading this thread, I might get one since a lot of people are having success. My fire shrimp has already staked out his "area" so maybe I can get the CBS to stay on the other side

Yeah, too tiny that at the moment I can't find him :p
Then again with all the smaller LR I have in there, just about any CBS could hide. I wonder how quickly he'll grow. I also wonder what size bristle worms he'll be able to eat. I think I have worms of all sizes in that tank so I'll do a lot of spying tonight!

I have 2 now and boy do they grow fast. In 3 months or so they've grown about 60%. Mine are well fed as I overfeed my fish so they're always cleaning up the bed.

I'm glad to hear they grow fast, mine will have plenty to eat with all the small bristles around. I just hate that I can't seem him, so small and so many hiding places. I'll just have to keep spying on the tank I guess.

I am going to get me one for sure I just hope he is a peaceful tank mate because right now I'm preparing to upgrade from a 90 gal to a 180 gal and would like him to be able to get in the tank a happy shrimp.

A quick update. I put the CBS in the tank 2 weeks ago and hadn't seen it since. I had all the rock moved in that tank yesterday trying to find my one urchin (moving that one to a different tank, and got a new one for that tank) Anyhow while I was moving the rock around I did see my tiny blue cbs is alive and well
