couldn't stop myself

saw this guy at my LFS for $6.99 and absolutely had to have him, my wife named him pinchy and he's a blue prawn told he can be a little agressive and possibly predatory but so far seems pretty timid, right now he's about 4 inches long and so are his claws definitely the new tank favorite

Neat guy, I hope you don't have any fish with long, flowing fins in there. They're great at nabbing those tempting fins.

It's always hit or miss with those guys, I'm sure a bunch of people can back me up on this. Even short finned fast fish are at risk of attacks. I just hope you got lucky!

Really cool fish though, I've always wanted one!

IME they'll try and get fish while they "sleep" at the bottom of the tank. Just keep an eye out.

Not really a fish btw... Lol

Forgot to add,

Do you think you can get any side shots of him? They're really cool, nice find!!
