One of the new RCS

The adults, like the one shown here, are about an inch long, not counting antennae. Since this one dumped a bunch of eggs which have hatched into new shrimp fry, I now have a bunch of 1/4"-3/8" shrimplets running around the tank. These share a tank with some wimpy cherry barbs who won't eat much of anything, so I don't have a guide to tell you whether these would be safe with your fish.

He'll definitely appreciate them! Ghost shrimp are a really good and cheaper live feeder option.

they might bring out the natural instinct in him and he'll go wild after them.
