Whisker Shrimp
#11
I didn’t’ Think ghost shrimp had all the black veins, ghost shrimp to me are very transparent but these shrimp seem to be quite large with a lot of black veins, I’ll get another picture later tonight if I can

Ghosts aren't the same as Amano, which get called ghosts for no apparent reason other than they are a clearish body colour.
There are morphs of ghosts which is why I said it looks like there's some "tiger" genes...... Wink
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Mobiles are way too complicated for me, although I do have one now. Wink

A Whisker Shrimp can be more aggressive than Ghost Shrimp. They will often pick on Ghost Shrimp if kept together in the same tank. This is especially true if the tank is overcrowded. Whisker Shrimp can also bully other freshwater shrimp, but seem to be good tank mates with freshwater snails. Nerite Snails, Mystery Snails, Gold Inca Snails, Ivory Snails, Ramshorn Snails, Rabbit Snails and Japanese Trapdoor Snails good. Whisker Shrimp can be aggressive with other small species of shrimp and small fish. But they are no match for roughens like Cichlids or Goldfish.


According to https://www.aquariumcarebasics.com/freshwater-shrimp/ anyway

I’ll check out that link, thank you.
Thankfully they don’t appear to have grown any larger, I did lose 1. Just like my blue velvet shrimp that died, it was a milky white colour when I found it, must be something in my water or more likely something that I’m doing but the other 3 are thriving.
I had put another post somewhere here, the only fish I’ve seen them back away from is the female Apistogramma, the biggest shrimp, the Male with the big claw, stole a food pellet off the Male apisto, no fear.
I’ve missed having shrimp so I’ll enjoy these guys until I can get the new betta tank sorted, get him better & hopefully get a couple of dwarf caridina shrimp again
