    I just love those shrimp, they are definitely my favourite! The white arms stand out perfectly with their bodies, and the subtle spots are very unique. Maybe I’ll start a tank of those one day.

    Yeap those are my favorite shrimps for 3 reason.
    Shrimps are easy, not need fan or aircodition at summer, and they dont need selective breedings, are all the same.'

    Look at all those shrimp! Your house is probably cooler than my local shrimp store.

    Did you see this?

    Amazing shrimp nicpapa! I always wondered what is your weekly feeding regime for your shrimp? What type of food do you use? How often are you having to manually remove waste from the orange shrimp tank?

    I am really interested in the amounts and frequency of feeding.

    Nice looking shrimp. Love those cardinals.
    Curious, what kind of Buce is the dark variety in your snowball tank? I only have the green wavy but looking to try a few different (mainly dark/ blue leaf) varieties soon

    I love the Sulawesi shrimp most. Their intense color, long antennae and mannerism make them look like coral reef shrimp. Are they hard to keep. What water parameters do they need.

    You have lot of ramshorn snails in your shrimp tanks. Aren't you concerned about over population. I think they bully and out compete shrimp for food.
