Very nice. Mine would always stay hidden all the time.

This one does most of the time. He comes out in the dark, and when there if fresh food, but prefers to stay hidden.

I've always loved shrimp, be it fresh water or salt. And that one is sooo red!

I know the coral banded will try to eat smaller shrimp, but the fire shrimp is relatively large. When I first got the fire he chased the peppermint a bit, but I think he was just trying to establish his little niche in the world.

He is enjoyable, just very shy. It was on sale for 18.00 when I got it, but the LFS I use usually sells them for around 23.00. When I got him home I poured him into a 2 gallon container. I very scientifically <blush> poured 'bout 1/2 of a coffeecup of aquarium water in with him every 15-20 min. When the jug was full, I poured him into the aquarium. It took a little over an hour to fill the jug up. He never acted like he was shocked. Just found a place to hang out and chased off anything that came near him.

The CBS can become quite nasty to other tank critters. For some strange reason, I really haven't been interested in a CBS.
