Tiny shrimp are so cute. They make the adults look like goliaths.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

Love to watch that too myself. I think the snail shell is like a mobile algae farm to the little shrimp. Free ride and food!

"WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

I think usgetata is onto something; my mystery snail is never without a few shrimplets riding/grazing.
