She ate the other one's foot. I had to put Gucci my frog to sleep today, she was eating him alive, by the time I got him out he was 'dead' until I put him in the toilet and he managed to move his arm, so I took him out numbed and put him to sleep with cloves, I also rolled him up with some forget-me-not flowers when I was saying goodbye. A valuable lesson was learned. All of a sudden she wants to eat everything, including my frogs.. I put her in another tank. She's now 2 inches in length... 3/4 more of an inch since the 13th.. I gave her loads to eat, more than she should for her size the other day and she ate it all and still ate my frogs.. She's also turning a tan colour and seems to be getting darker... P.S. my surviving frog has been methylene blued and will be getting it again everyday for the next week or more. She's growing at 0.75 inches every 10 days. 2 inches now.

Today after the whole thing -
Sorry again about your frog, that's awful.

Shrimp for some reason freak me out, just the look of them lol But this one is just some sort of freak. I'd take it back lol

They used to freak me out, but I am used to them now If I take it back, who's going to get it, someone with a tank full of little fish?

ya so i belive you might have gotten three types of shrimp, and for the long arm one i would go with around a ten gallon aquarium with a heater as a basic setup.
But they are very cool, they like a few hiding places and might pick at plants.

These prawns should be kept in a species only tank. They will eat everything that is in the tank with them, they have voracious appetites because they grow so quickly and so big.

I had one that cleared my discus tank. Ate all the neons, then rummys, then shrimp, then discus. Sad thing is, I forgot I put it in there. I could not figure out what was going on. Moved it to a tank with 3, 14inch balla sharks and he ate one of them. Finally a 2 foot pleco ate him. He kept trying to eat the pleco so the pleco killed him. They are nasty little prawns. Bad prawn, bad.
