Funny shrimp getting a ride on a snail

He keeps doing this! He's been riding snails all over the tank. The best video is when I was acclimating them to the new tank.

@garfieldnfish yeah I think your right! She was pretty active now very calm & sitting near the heater. The other 3 active & moving around the tank. Can't tell if she is molting, not adjusting to the tank, or what.

Always nice to see active shrimp. When they go inactive for long periods of time is when you should start worrying.
Also, nice saddling on the female. Always a good sign.
