Re: [APD] Red CHerry Shrimp
Bamboo shrimp are filter feeders. If you look at their front lets, you'll
see they are webbed. They also like high spots. Mine love to sit on the
filter bars of my fluval. All of my fish leave them alone (tiger barbs,
plecs, gouramis, rainbows, tetras)
Corse their size might have something to do with it.
