Little Percival might get some shrimp... eventually. I want to see how they do in Arthur's tank first, then maybe if they survive and actually start breeding I'll try a few in all of the tanks.

So far I've only seen a few in the tank today, so I'm not sure if Arthur has gotten a shrimpy snack or if they finally decided to do the smart thing and HIDE!! He's doesn't have a full tummy look, so I'm hoping they're just terrified and laying low.

My CT just shredded the one he had. Didn't eat it just ripped it apart.

Ok, so the weekly tank cleanings are done & I sat down to see if I could see any little shrimps. Distinctly I saw at least 3 or 4 so I hope all 5 are still living!

Arthur is still giving it the ol' college try but I can't help but be slightly amused when he's stalking in on a tiny shrimp who's innocently eating & it suddenly takes off across the tank. He seems to stop & stare with a "that's not fair!" look on his pouty little face.

The goofball. I hope he gives up soon.

Pig chased the amano but seemed to just kind of tap them, not lunge at them like Dexter did at his poor hapless red cherries. Every time I added shrimp, they would be very active the first day or two and then completely disappear from view. At least I know where the amano are hiding now and I found a few of the cherries in my filter, even though I had covered the filter intake with foam. How did they get in there? One of them was still alive! I added more foam to completely block any access. No more shrimp for us.

That's what my Champagne did. Bit it in half, don't think he ate any of it.
