...Still have tiny heart attacks when they see shrimp molts!
This bamboo shrimp is possibly the coolest critter in this tank and I still have a split second of panic when I see the molt in the tank!
Iíd love to get a few more but I started with 5 and all but this one found a way out of the tank, through the filter probably. Iím kinda afraid to get any more because I clearly canít keep the tank sealed well enough to keep them safe!
They started in a 30 gallon tank and I think the fish were startling them into fleeing the tank, so this one remaining shrimp has been hanging in the peacefulness of my overfiltered 10g shrimp / cory tank, happily gobbling the fry food that I put in for him and a few random guppy fry.
While Iím introducing shrimp tank residents... meet cyclops. She came to me from a LFS
with one eye but otherwise apparently healthy. Anyone have a guess. I know shrimp can regrow limbs with a molt but what about eyes!?
