Yesterday I went into petco just to browse and spotted a coral banded shrimp for $10. I had been wanting my first creature for my ten gallon for awhile, and he looked healthy, so i bought him. I brought him home an drip acclimated him. He got into the tank and I just sat their watching him and all of his claws moving about. He is not shy at all, has great personality, wants to fight me
, and shows himself a lot. Best of all, he ate from my hand a piece of shrimp the first time I fed him. He is only 1-2" long and is now tied for the spot of favorite invert. The arrow crab is my other, and I also hand feed him! They are so cool! Why didn't I get one sooner!!?? Anyways, just thought I would share. Trying to contain my excitement here.
