Hey guys, today when I fed the tank my bamboo fan shrimp Abelard made a rare appearance. He usually hangs out around the back of this tank because thats where the filter outlet and bubble-wand make the current strongest. When he lived in the big tank he used to be out in the open more because of the waterflow in there, he was always "surfing" on the tallest plant he could find. Anyway, here he is, as usual the photos make him look a bit dull because my camera isn't great, but IRL he is a rich reddish orange (unlike the many brown ones I have seen in stores), you can kind of get an idea of his colouring by the fact he almost matches the terracotta pot next to him. He has a really nice white stripe down his back and a white "beauty spot" too, which I didn't capture perfectly, but I was just happy to get a somewhat clear view of him! : Some serious fan action! And here is one with a cameo by one of the Assassin snails that live in the tank too: Eventually he will go and live in the cherry shrimp tank (when that is ever even close to being a reality) but as it is so important to keep fan-feeder shrimp in mature tanks, he is currently chillaxin with the Corydoras Hope you enjoyed :]
