    harlequin shrimp are pretty cool if you can support their feeding habits

    No Sallys! they are evviiiiillll... and they just look creepy D: I got one and it ate one of my fish. i was like "BYE BYE EVIL CRAB" and took him back.

    fire shrimp are fun, but they tend to hide all day :(

    I love my skunks and peppermints, I really want some sexys but with Kona i don't really wanna risk it, plus they are expenseive D:

    No way. I had two sally lightfoots. They killed and ate three fish right in front of me before I was able to catch them and get them out.

    Fire shrimp are just too expensive. I had a couple but they always stayed hidden.

    I liked my arrow crab but they just grow and grow in no time at all. I see them on every dive here in the gulf so I can just pick one up anytime.
