Hi, my LFS just got some of these guys in a few days ago. I was hesitant to buy them because I had no idea how they would do with red cherry shrimp and amano shrimp. Does anybody know if they will be ok together?

Great shrimp, i have some. Do not buy the milky ones, they die soon after they become milky. They will do great with any shrimp really, i keep them with cherry shrimp, and green caridina shrimp. They can only reproduce in salt water anyways. They are very fascinating! Almost seem like little helicopters swimming around. I would recommend. The fact that your LFS has them is awesome. I would buy them all. Here is a pic of one of mine.

Ok, I'm going to get them, I called the LFS today, because its a bit of a drive out there. He saw two in there, but I bet there is a few more because when I went to get amano shrimp last time, he saw only 3, but there ended up being 7 in there.

They only had two today, we looked but couldn't find more. I bought them, and they are doing good in my tank, I'll go back next week and buy some more if they have them.
