Oh speaking of shrimp I like the looks of the camel shrimp too. Fire is nice!

I would LOVE a fire shrimp but i can't seem to part with the $40 my lfs wants for them. LOL Plus I have a rogue shrimp killer in my 125g so no more shrimp in that tank. :-(

I can't seem to keep a shrimp either. 40? For a shrimp? I thought 20 was high for a cleaner

My lfs gets $25 for cleaners and $40 for the fires and $8 for peppermints. :-( I currently have only a single coral banded in the 125g as his mate died during shipping and now I can't get another one. BOOO.....

I am however thinking of getting a fire or 2 cleaners for my 20g rimless, I only have 2 tiny peppermints in there now. I love shrimp, i'd love to have a shrimp only tank LOL

I forget exactly what we paid for the Fire Shrimp but it was around $40. Worth every penny though as far as I am concerned.

He hides in his spot most of the time but peaks out on occasion. During feeding he will come all the way out and run around the rocks and sand bed.

Yes, I remember that feeling when I finally decided it was time. Happy for you.
