Re: [APD] Red CHerry Shrimp
I love my bamboo shrimp (aka wood shrimp) but they are filter feeders. If
you look at their feet you will see two pairs in the front that have
feathery fans on the end. They eat by spreading the fans to filter the water
then drawing the fans through their mouths. Fascinating to watch.
