I read up about them.. They seem to get pretty big, something said 150l tank.. But I suppose they over do it on sites like the one I was on, I believe she is a female due to the claws? (I am no shrimp expert) She's in an 11l just now, once I convince my parents I will get a 15/20gal for her Second hand though, they wont let me buy another new one. P.S. her name is Hannah-Belle, can anyone guess why?

When mine was finally caught, it was about a foot and a half long (Claw to tail). It was in a heavily planted 180g, so it was hard to see. It took about 2 years to get that big.

Here's a few pictures, she's looking cute in one which is rare, but evil in the other. She likes her bloodworms.

I can't see her with blue claws... And she's turning a brown colour.. Instead of pale with blue claws, I don't think she's a M. Rosenbergii

I'm raising a monster! Young ones have brown arms with yellow bands like the first photo of her eeek! The second one really looks like her.. Getting her a new tank it's about 20-30 gallons.. I'm going to need a bigger tank! Has anyone got any photos of a young long armed prawn about 1-3 inches long? It would really help me ID her as this huge prawn.
