    Hope I don't have to add a volcano deco JK

    Thanks for the info. Perfect for one of my planned soft coral and small fish tank.

    They are VERY hardy shrimp however I believe they have larva, which need brackish water

    I have quit keeping shrimp, but they really are the most rewarding!

    They can go from brackish to more than full-strength salt.

    They are extremely hardy and can live 20 freakin years. In the wild, they live in tidal pool-type environments where the salinity and temperatures fluctuate like crazy.

    They are small though, only 1 to 1.5cm max.

    Eat algae. Need a species tank since they are so small. Smaller than cherries, for instance.

    I picked up 20 from J&L yesterday.

    In Hawaii they are sold as live food and also for live seahorse treats.

    Yes, but the shrimp slowly starve to death in those "ecospheres". Cruel really. No feeding, no water changes, etc.
