Nice looking shrimp, Chad!

What types of shrimp do you currently keep?

PS. I think I need a new FTS!

I keep TFRs, greens, yellow, RCS,snowball, Blue pearls(2), Tangerine tigers, and yamatos.

What tank do you want a FTS of?

Yes it is. It contrasts beautifully with the BBA right next to it doesnt it? This is actuall a junk tank where I toss all of my scraps that are worth keeping and I rarely tend to it other than to top it up. Trust me, if you saw a FTS of this one it would win TPT ugly tank of the year award. All it is missing is clown puke gravel

Nice, I'm going to have to step up my shrimp game! I just have OEBT's and some RCS that I'm experimenting with. I have an empty DIY rimless 10g now since I moved the killis to my 75.. I need to think of a shrimp for it!

All of them of course! Seriously though, I'd love to see any of them.

You've been hiding the greens from us! I never even knew you had any. I just got a few today to try out. My first attempt failed a few years ago because I was poisoning them with excess ferts and didn't realize it

+1 for the FTS of all!

I am in love with the TFRs. The rest of them are just there for function and variety. The red ones can be seen a room away and I always catch myself lingering over their tanks more than others.

Yes, the greens have been in a Mini pellia tank that I just stripped in anticipation of a few new bags of AS. I will get a good pic of them up soon. Do you still have any giant snail eating shrimps? Maybe we could do a trade sometime. Ive got a raging pond snail problem in my main tank and they are eating holes in my crypt leaves so it time to fix it. I dont want a loach and assassins would eventually starve. As for a FTS of al of them, they never all look good at the same time so I never post all of them up

Wow...I hardly ever hear of anything eating crypt leaves. Those must be some crazy snails. I unfortunately only have one visible juvenile atm. There might be more tiny ones hiding but I sent all of my larger ones to Sara so you can bug her once the berried females drop their babies. I could grow the juvie to a giant size soon enough and send him to you though. They're quite efficient and hungry.

Is that mini bolbitis still with you? I haven't seen it pop up anywhere this past year.
