Some pics of my shrimps

Happy to say that everyone is thriving in this tank. I keep CPO's,blue diamonds and low grade crs all together in the same tank. Recently they have all become berried and given birth at the same time. Talk about a population explosion!

I've seen a cpo eat one of the bd's once. I don't know if the cpo caught the bd or if the bd was already dead. The neos and crs are very quick to move out of the larger cpo's way. It's the baby cpo's that are a little slower. Once they reach about half inch in size they seem to act like they're invincible.

I see, I've seen sources claiming cpo's does and doesn't eat shrimps, that's why I got curious

Thanks for all the coments on the pics. I just got a new camera and managed to snap this pic of one of the bd's. You can see this particular neo has some brighter blue patches near it's head.

Juvenile CPO hanging out in some Hemianthus micranthemoides. The babies love hiding out in this plant. I recently extended the HM in my tank just for them.

I love the look of the blue diamonds. I wish shrimp didn't cost so much (especially to ship) I think I'm just going to end up with ghost shrimp in my starter tank or whatever my LFS has available.
