I don't remember the number off hand - but he told us in blunt terms to stop drinking it so I have to assume it's up there. We are actually having someone come check out our pipes because he said the...

Also, I don't know how obvious is in in that pic, but it's not really "cotton"y looking. It looks closer to cottage cheese. And a few of them have it on/near their eyes (like the one in the pic).

Question Shrimp ID?

I bought this little guy yesterday when I got some new Java Moss from my LFS because he refused to let go of the moss and I thought he was cute. The LFS owner told me he's a "skunk" shrimp. The only...
