New addition

New cleaner shrimp since Sat. Also 3 turbos. I read that cleaner shrimp are hard to keep, so far so good. Say hello to my little friend.

Nice shrimp. Only certain species are hard to care for.

Mine never does! I have that, a coral banded (he's a jerk...wouldn't recommend him) and my blood shrimp (LOVE HIM AND HE IS WAY COOL). None of them do but I know that some people say they do!

Once established in the tank, the skunk cleaners are pretty bold. Mine climbs over everything and is generally in the front of the tank. My peppermint got prettty bold as well, but generally liked to stay under something until feeding time or unless my hand was in the tank.

Skunk cleaners will also jump onto your hand or arms and try to clean you if they're comfortable. It's pretty cool.

I live near Galveston and some people will go down at night and get their own peppermint shrimp. You should see the pictures because they get a ton of them!
