Simple question... How well do you think a bamboo shrimp (singapore wood shrimp) will do in 65 degree F water?

Hmmm... this isn't quite enough information. Any other opinions? I can't find a reliable source online...most of them give conflicting information.

It will survive, won't be happy or very active but, will hang on for several weeks or longer. These are swamp shrimp, used to tannin coloured waters, low pH and ready food sources. Often the waters are in the low 70F range especially if not exposed to sunlight. Remember just because Malaysia is considered to be warm in the winter and hot in the summer, don't assume the rainy season is also toasty warm (3 seasons in Malaysia summer, winter and WET with green things growing between you toes and under your armpits)
