Shrimp Anyone?

So, On a whim I bought 4 Ghost Shrimps last weekend. I just think they are so cool to watch. I love watching them eat blood worms, you can see it being swallowed and it move all the way to their tummy. Coool One little guy loves food so much he follows my finger on the glass. I feed blood worms with a medicine dropper and this guy was hanging on to it and wouldn't let go LOL.

Got a couple really good photos the other day. I was shocked at how good they came out! :p

I love those kind of shrimp!

Very interesting little guys. I made the mistake of putting them in a tank with fish though =( Should have probably thought that through.. Oh well.

I didn't worry about the fish, I had a few before. What I worried about was a frog nabbing one. But one of the little guys walked right over the frog and it ignored it. I am really wanting Cherry Shrimp but the ones at my lfs are still way too tiny to put in the tank. So, I am hoping they still have some when they get bigger.

One did die on me, so I dropped the corpse into the Mbuna tank and it got snagged in seconds LOL No way would I put shrimp in that tank! The fish in my planted tank just ignore them. Plus, they were only 30 cents each, so figured if they did get ate I was only out a dollar.

They can carry horsehair worms, but it was most likely nitrates if you had them in a community tank.
