Mine came eating flake and frozen. Ask the store to feed them in front of you before you buy. Mine also probably pick off RCS shrimplets.

The Shrimp will never hurt my SBs but my SBs may eat newly hatched Shrimp.

this is a pic of my Scarlet Badis ( Dario dario) pair.

I meant the Badis hurting the shrimp- they do get a little nippy from what I've seen and your shrimp is gorgeous!! I love crustaceans, fresh and salt, because they are always goofing off.. Do your scarlets like to show off for the camera?

The adult Shrimp are safe. Shrimplets may be on the menu. I've never seen them hurt a Shrimp. But they stalk their micro food

And No, they are quite shy. My male isn't bothered by my iPhone now , but the female takes patience. Any sudden movement can send them away.

That's what I had heard about them being so shy, but then I've heard the opposite. Lol, that's typical though

Nice find. A female might entice even better color! Mine would hide 90% time, with 5 Chilis Boraras Brigittae and RCS shrimp in the 6.6G. They ate pretty much all shrimplets in my tank.

Do you have fish in too? What kind(s)?
