terrible iphone pic. these fish were smaller than their CRS shrimp.

I like this fish . You can keep them with shrimps, because they are very tiny

what bleached anemones?

Not sure which those lampeyes are. But easy to keep. If theyre the ones with yellow tinge to them, especially on the tail, super easy breeders. The more colourful ones (orange in tail), easy but I havent seen babies yet.

They look like regular norman's lampeyes. The get to about 1.5 inches and are kinda nippy IME. I would definitely not keep them with shrimp.
