    I already have Red Cherry Shrimp in one of my tanks, but thought I would try an Amano Shrimp in another one of my tanks that has my "baby giant" betta, Percival, in it. I got the shrimp last weekend and he was immediately named Manny. (I dunno why/where I got that name, but it stuck.) This is...
