'Ghost Shrimp' (warning for dial-up users)

These are the survivors of 10 'Ghost Shrimp' that I tossed in my tank a few months ago as fish food. 5 were eaten immediately...the other 5 survived and grew...and grew...and grew....and grew!!! Here are a couple of them...obviously NOT exactly the same kind of shrimp (they're more likely prawns). Magnificent beasts, aren't they??

Yep....that's the same one as in the second picture. It is one of the long-arm prawns (possibly Macrobrachium). I've heard that these brutes can occasionally kill fish but so far my monsters have limited themselves to snipping my plant leaves off at the stems. They're almost impossible to catch in my planted tank without tearing the whole thing up but I'm just about to the point where I'm going to try trapping them just to get them out of there.
