That stuff is always said about this species of shrimp, but I can't say I believe it.
I can't believe they would be happy in an environment with no water motion, filtration, ect.
They are hardy, sure, but why not treat them like a red cherry (that enjoys healthy brackish water)?
I'm not saying I look down on your shrimp keeping, but I wish they weren't kept in ecospheres, where they eventually die of ammonia poisoning or starve, or forced to endure no water changes.
In Hawaii they live in poor conditions, but nature does water changes with rain and evaporation.
