That's some of the best shrimp photography I've ever seen (and I look at alot of shrimp pics).

Your welcome to come and photograph my collection anytime lol.

I'm looking to get some of these myself, you just made me decide to get them sooner lol.

Cheers mick

Thanks, they are very cool shrimp :) And it seems that they can change color quite drastically depending on mood/environment. Not a very artistic shot, but here is a large female that I put in the discus tank. It was glowing orange/red a couple of days ago, and now it's this coloration:

Haven't really noticed this. They are in the same tank as yellow cherries, darwin red nose shrimp, darwin algae shrimp, chameleon shrimp, glass shrimp, crystal red shrimp.... and there are all sorts of baby shimp swimming around (except darwin algae shrimp of course). But just because I don't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen....

I haven't tested it Directly but When I had them mine used to eat live brine shrimp or just about anything else .

I was keeping mine for a short while with Flyspeck Hardyheads .

Nice Pics to the OP by the way .

These are my favourite fresh water crustaceans .
