Pretty sure I'd give up a shrimp tank in order to create a biotope for these critters.

Yes, that is the earth you just felt shaking. Me - giving up a shrimp tank.

I wonder if there's any species named after more classic presidents like Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln. It seems like those would be the first choice.
