    My sexy shrimp was only sexy for a couple of days..never saw him again but I love my pistol shrimp in my 30. They do move A LOT of sand. The popping is funny. I have mine paired with a watchman. In a 30 they don't have much of a choice but to like each other...

    lol I just know they eat crustaceans. To mean that means don't put them in the tank with other shrimp. But I guess we eat beef and you can put us in a yard with cows so......

    Hey people just noticed my female Sexy looks pregnant. How do I keep the ??? from becoming food? Can I separate/isolate her in something in the tank? I don't have any other SW tanks or sump. Pretty cool though :)

    Sexy shrimp are great. Do them. A group of 7 of them in the 10g would look awesome.
