Amano shrimp. I've never had luck keeping even so much as Ghost Shrimp, but these guys have actually stuck around for a couple of months- the local water supply is rainwater filtered through pine needles. Since I'm not a fan of the better living through chemistry approach to aquaria, that kind of rules out fauna that need elevated carbonate and potassium levels.
My only regret is that I had not tried them before. I find inverts more entertaining than my piscean pets and these guys have a lot of interesting behaviors that are fun to watch.
