Scuds are cool. I've really wanted have some but I've read horror stories of them going rampant, eating everything in the aquarium (plants, algae, shrimp, each other), and then I've read stories of people that have had them in their aquarium for years. They do a good job with hair algae and they reproduce so fast I could see them making quick work of a lot of detritus in the aquarium, but I'm still sort of hesitant to buy any. If you decide to keep them in your aquarium, please let me know how it works out and what you figure out. Most of the time these guys are sold as live food so maybe you could take advantage of having a colony on hand?
