Shrimp. Its not just for dinner anymore.

I've decided I adore freshwater shrimp almost as much as my angelfish, and got some really cute pics of em. I have one big ol bamboo shrimp, and 2-4 cherry shrimp (they make rare appearances and never all at the same time...4 went in LOL no idea how many are still there but its at least one):

I wish the LFS around here sold those little guys. I have wanted to get some for my 10 gallon but I do so hate mail ordering live stock. Perhaps my brother can get me some in Ottawa and bring them home at xmas.

Nice pics..

I recently got some ghosts, one of the most active things you can buy.

I got the bamboo shrimp from a lfs, but the cherry shrimp I ordered from Arizona Gardens (online). Next time I'm ordering from Frank's Aquarium online; hes got a better selection, hes cheaper and hes a 2 hr drive from me *grin* Its the only time I bought livestock online; I ordered 5 and one didn't survive as he got himself stuck in the folds of the plastic bag. The others seem to be doing well (I find shells once in a while so I know they're moulting, which is generally a good sign).

I've only seen the ghost shrimp in the lfs, and once the bamboo. I don't think FW shrimp are very popular....yet *grin* but I think they will be, especially the filter feeders. Neat lil guys.

Shrimp are really cool. I have to say they are the #1 attention getting item in my tanks. Everyone always has to ask "Are these the type you eat?" and I have to tell them NO!. Not ulness you want to spend $30 on a little sliver of meat.

OMG Fishfreek,that is such a nice photo! I must say that my personal computer's Desktop Wallpaper Collection has grown immensly because of your tank inhabitants! (Although I have the neighbor's cat as a wallpaper at the moment).
