pet a bamboo shrimp?
 
so i bought a monster bamboo shrimp(grown in florida) today from my lfs. i put him in the water today and began rescaping a little. well he swam right up to my hand set down, so i pet him. he let me do it:biggrin:. i stopped and he swam away it was super cool.

Fun, just don't hug him too tight.

Sweet you should post pics/vid.

Make sure your hands are soap free during the petings haha.

That's some crazy coloring! Love it

is there a size to compare too ? Just looking at it, it is huge.

acitydweller 04-05-2012 02:44 PM

can you hold your cellphone next to him in the tank for a size reference?

j/k

:)

I'd like to see a picture of him filter feeding. He can probably catch whole chunks in those mitts!

They're mesmerizing to watch but unfortunately mine likes to hide under the driftwood.

i don't really have anything, that picture is the only one iwas able to get, he saw my camera on the glass and swam off, but like said he is about 3 inches, give or take. if i can get a picture with a refernce i will most certainly put it up for you to see.

Are you serious? 3 inches????
