Shrimps!

I was out at scales today looking at some driftwood for my nano, and I felt the need to pic up some of these guys. Haven't had shrimp before now, so we'll see how they do.

6 amano shrimp went in the 29
6 RCS went in the 20H grow out tank, and will probably transfer to the nano when it's up and stable.

I ADORE my shrimp!

I have one Bamboo/Flower shrimp in my 38 and one in my 20L, six Amano shrimp in my 38, and Red Cherry Shrimp in my 20L and in my Eclipse System 6. They are FUN, and have a surprising amount of personality.

My Amano shrimp have all grown a bit, but one is now nearly 2 inches long (the other five are a little over 1 inch). She's a giant (I think its a she, at least)... So be prepared for them to grow up a bit!
