Found at least 3. One was squished into the foam. Picking up a sponge filter tomorrow. And hope no more meet an unfortunate end.

4 shrimp... hate loosing them to something like this. Have two females and two or three males that I can see. Plus thw one who died, leaves one MIA.

Also, shrimp food, yea or nae? After work... shrimp supplies and pick up my package!

My LPS has mountain fan shrimp from time to time. Huge suckers. They wouldn't be threatened like cherries.

They are, the ones I saw were attached to the filter or at least where there was current

The only other large shrimp I've seen are marine. Blood red or some other name like that. Expensive, 50.00 price tag each. Did see another it was a cleaner? I think. It groomed the fish.

i was looking for ghost shrimp at the store i went to today, but i'm p sure they only had marine shrimp. so then i looked at snails, but i need to cycle longer before i get one. there was a baby blue colored apple snail. and some cute nerites.
