I purchased this fella to put in a aqua-ponic tank. I didn’t put a sponge on the filter as I believed the slots were smaller than him...little beady eyes in the reservoir...survived the ordeal no worse for wear. I’ve seen two molts, during which he hides well and afterwards displays pretty oranges and reds.

Shrimp are healthy and beautiful. They hid for a couple days scared of the other fish even hanging out outside of the water which scared me me but they eventually came back down and are active and fun to watch.

Love My Bamboo Shrimp

The Bamboo Shrimp I recently purchased are amazing!!! They are such a fun addition to the tank. The children literally spend hours watching them move around and finding them when they hide away/camouflage.

I was nervous about the shipping but they were packaged thoughtfully and arrived without harm. The other fish are more social with them in the tank and they acclimated quickly.
