A worthwhile addition
by Ed Williamson
These shrimp are a nice addition to my planted tank. Although they often hide and are not seen for days at a time, when they do show themselves they are fascinating and entertaining to watch as their movement is so different from that of fish. They seem to do well in a community tank, and have not been difficult to keep for the month I have had them, regardless of the various concerns I have been told.
Great $5 Addition
by MARK O
I've had one of these for two months now, in a 10 gallon tank, with small river stone substrate, small plastic green plants, natural river stone, and driftwood. I have two apple snails, a 3" comet goldfish, and a 3" fantail calico goldfish. The shrimp has lived for two months now in this tank, and has grown almost to 1" in length. It has been in the tank for 2 months now, and it stays hidden mostly. At first, I thought it didn't last overnight, and was fish food, however about a month later, I found him hiding under a small piece of driftwood.
<br>In short, it lives fine in a ten gallon, with two goldfish, as long as you give this shrimp ample places to hide. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to add a third species to your tank.
