Those Secretive Shrimp
Last Summer I decided to try the Amano Shrimp and bought about 18 for
my 150 gallon. Some arrived dead ( Fedex had late flights that day)
but about dozen were alive. Some of these, my fish promptly devoured.
A few remained perched atop a powerhead. And a week or two later they
seemed to be gone -- but every now and then I would see one, just one,
hiding in the leaves. I could have sworn the rest were kaput. I do
weekly water changes, prunings, general maintenance but never saw more
Today I counted seven (all of them about 1 inch in length). Have they
been hiding that well? Did one pregnant shrimp raise a small brood in
treacherous waters that none of her siblings survived.
I am impressed with their secretiveness. I think they hide rather
