    Awesome :)

    They probably aren't great examples of that shrimp but I'm very happy none the less!

    I will be getting another 10-20 free next month again. So I hope I can start a colony with them.

    Well I got them and they've been breeding slowly but surely. Lots of tiny ones running around

    Oh, it turns out that they are not tigers or anything exotic. They are plain old Neocardina shrimp. Still, they were free so who is complaining :)

    Here are two quick phone snaps of the one. They are not often this close to the glass.

    How quickly do they breed? I was given 9 but can only find about 3 at any given time. (Though there are many many hiding places in the tank)
    I bet the dude was culling and that's what he took out :P
    But yeah those look like wild type neos.
    A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
    do as I say, not as I do- William
    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.
