I think all shrimp will go towards the good food when we put it in. If the bamboo shrimp is shifting though the sand when there's no algae tablets than that would be bad, but it doesn't sound like that's the case :) I think bamboo shrimp are awesome, I wanted one but my water is pretty much super clear.

I'm tempted. My 20 gallon is so full of organisms (read: gunk). I'm sure he'd do fairly well. If your tank is densely planted there should be enough infurosia for it to eat. Not sure if it'd get much if any food in an unplanted/lightly planted tank. They are cute, but they are wild collected and not doing so well in the wild now. It'd be nice to try captive breeding.. maybe some day.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I'm in processing of adding more plants to my tank. I think it looks good but I need to decorate bit better lol. I need go buy a large driftwood and more gravel to make it look appealing & natural. My bamboo shrimp is doing just fine , she usually eat the leftovers / sometimes some algae wafers.

I shall post some phots but as long no one 'd judge about how I care for my shrimp/the tank.

Every feeding, there's alway flakes on the gravel. My bamboo shrimp goes out and picking them up faster as she could. Then I'd drop a wafer for her to eat the extra food lol. Oh of course! They are kind of another verison of crayfish but harmless lol.

Yeah they are expensive at Petco, I don't want to buy something and I don't know how to have food circulating the tank, sounds like it can get messy lol. That's what keeps me away.

I love the look of them sitting and their fans are out and they grab somethi.g and just put it in their mouth super fast.
Thank you and I keep up with maintaining my tank by vacuuming the sand/gravel. Oh and changing the water too. It's a big job for me but I enjoy watching them.

Ahh I see , I'm sure it'd happen to other people too. I agree & its so expensive but I had a discount so... lol.
