He lived in terror for a long time. Tossed to grow before being shipped in crowded bags to his tank. Stuffed to the max with other shrimp in a bare bottom glass tank with less then an inch of space per shrimp. He was set to be sold and eaten and killed as a feeder are die and be eaten as the only source of food for the other shrimp. We came along and picked up 5 of the ghost shrimp. He was a happy shrimp. He would raise his arms in the air to snag food before it hit the ground and was very gentle and never hurt any of the others or any fish.
Figaro died of unknown causes but the ghost shrimp sold as feeders often are so overbred that they have low immunity to just about everything. Anything could have killed my pretty blue baby.
Swim In Peace little buddy.
