Bamboo shrimp

Do any of you know anything about Bamboo shrimp? I was at Petco the other day and saw some. They are a little bigger than ghost shrimp.

I was actually looking at them the other day at Petco, but they were HUGE. The size of my hand. I wouldn't put them in with bettas - they look scary!

Edit: Just looked them up and saw this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamboo_shrimp I still wouldn't put them in with bettas, though. They might get picked on if the betta is territorial.

I might have to hold off. The wikipedia said they should be in tanks that have been running for at least 6 months so they can eat. My tank hasn't been running that long. Cool looking shrimp.
