    I have a sexy shrimp in my 10 gallon, would it be alright to put it in my 55? or is it to big for the little guy?

    I think that it would be fine if you don't have anything that would eat it

    I heard that if you get a few of them they will follow each other around

    How big are these guys? The ones I saw at foster and smith were TINY, like 1/4 of an inch long at best. They do look cool, but I cant see those little of ones not being eaten by something...

    Your right,they are small.Maybe the largest ones in my tank might be 1/2'' at the most.They can move really fast when threaten and they use corals/anemones for protection which helps.My clowns,bartlett's,firefish,ex-Naso ignores them but yeah,people need to be careful around some fish.

    BTW,I've posted pics of them so many times already.

    Well, how I look at it is they live in the ocean so no matter how big the tank you put them in its still much more confined.
