If I am not mistaken Neil Frank was in Japan a year ago and brought 
back with him a few freshwater shrimps(Caridina Japonica). I would
like to hear (how about it Neil!!) what are his experiences what are 
his experiences with this animal. It seems to me that Liisa is saying
that they are not all that good!!? I'd also like to hear if anybody 
has had some experience with Bee shrimps. Sorry, don't know their 
Latin name.
