Also the main reason I got on this post was to ask where you guys got rabbit snails because I want one very bad and have been looking for about two months

Hi, just spotted this via a search engine. I bought one African filter shrimp a few years ago, didn't know what it was a the time but looked cool. Never seen them at lfs since. Unfortunately it escaped out of the tank a while later which was sad. However we then discovered about a year later 2 more in the tank which we didn't buy and was pretty odd since I can't find anywhere saying they've been successfully bred in captivity. Only thing I can assume is that the one I bought was pregnant, gave birth then went for a wonder out of the tank. I love the two I have though, we call them big Fred and little Fred

That's cool! I would love that babies! I've also read they're hard too breed. i target feed mine and I'm always looking for new things to give them what does yours enjoy?
Love the names my son calls mine mozzi, molly and Holly Lol i really enjoy mine they're so different to have.

Mine are in a community tank with a few guppies, platys, corys, ghost shrimp and asian filter shrimp. I don't target feed them but they seem happy. They love the driftwood and have dug a network under it coming out to sit on top whenever it's tea time! I tend to rotate what I feed them, a combination of flake, frozen mixed and bloodworm. I haven't tried anything else. They are my favourites though

Yes, they're also known as bamboo shrimp. They get along well with the african filter shrimp but big Fred does sometimes get grumpy when one clambers on top of him! The ghost shrimp get along with them well also, especially when they come to shed, the ghost shrimp rather round and pick at them as if they're helping and they obviously don't mind as they let them do it. The first time I panicked that they had gone rogue and were attacking the poor little Fred! Thanks for the welcome btw, loved your pics, will try to get some of mine
