What do you guys think of the 'new' Viper Shrimp? Live aquaria just started selling it. Any information on these things?

They require a lot of small floating food so they can filter it out of the water. Plus a good water flow...

So basially nice but can be hard to keep...

Take a look here at the Drs Fosters and Smith's Live Aquaria link (http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=1075+2797&pcatid=2797). And I thought 15 bucks for 5 cherry shrimp was expensive :hmm3grin2orange:

It is a cool shrimp but $70 is kinda steep.

You'd really need a specially designed tank to keep them, and culture several kinds of small life to feed it with. They hail from very fast rapids, so need a tank with as strong current and several air stones. Not a whole lot you can keep with them, either.
