New Flower Shrimp!

Well, as some of you know, I started a job at a LFS here in town yesterday. The job is really cool, and I get a sweet employee discount as well (which could turn out to be a dangerous thing for my paycheck). I picked this shrimp up for $2.50, and a tiger pleco for another $2.50, plus a really nice piece of driftwood for $10. Naturally, there are no pics of the tiger pleco but I caught my shrimp out and about tonight:

Thanks guys. Billsgate, my camera isn't nearly as nice as what some people here have, but I still really like it. I'm using a Nikon Coolpix 8700, 8MP and 8x optical zoom.

Nice picture, Hey will they let you just sign your check and give it to them, or can you run a tab?

majolo: right now the shrimp is about 3 inches, maybe just under.

TwoHobbies: worse. He just lets me pick out whatever I want and deducts it from my check. I'll have to be extremely careful LOL!
