inches at the most....working with them to see how well they will co-exist
with P. cyanodorsalis a
brackis water  blue eye that doesn't get too large.  Figured it would be
neat to see them living in a tank with Java moss and Java fern.
> They do clean up algae (fillmentous green) from plants fairly well and
the manager at the pet shop I frequent uses them to "scrub" algae off of
plants as they are waiting to be sold for someones meal.  Now that I have
more info, I am not sure if this shrimp is one of the endemic/indigenous
species that requires their larvae to spend time in the ocean.  Need to do
more research.  Can always go look at them
in the pet shop and see what things I can find out.
Fukada, is there a URL for these shrimps you mentioned.  The Yamato
numa-ebi shrimps (aka Amano Shrimp & Caradina Japonica) that is in my FW
planted 200litre setup doesn't go for the filamentous algae and your
scarlet-red ones caught my attention.  Question is can these guys be
assimiliated / aclimatised to FW?  Will be anxiously waiting for any
updates on your progress.  Thanks
