i have a arrow living at one end of my 100g tank, with 2 cleaner shrimps living at the other end. some where in the middle is a blood or fire shrimp, no problems as yet, the shrimps are abit to quick. he was only 2" when i got him 2 months ago he is about 5" now. cant believe how quick they grow.
amazing critter, though i do wonder when he will stop growing.lol

Give them alot of hiding places, and if you have a big tank see what happens! I have a 50gal. I guess Ill steer clear of the arrow crab..I really want a cleaner shrimp!

They sell packages with the arrow and the peppermint shrimp together on liveaquaria.com does the arrow bother all shrimps? I had one awhile back..it used to hangout on a huge piece of live rock.. I got a picaso trigger(who caused me numerous probs.) and I never saw him again.. He must of put up a fight!

Arrows can be opportunistic feeders. They can take down fish and other critters in your tank.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
