I have a couple of Amano shrimp in my tank that I've had a year or so. I wouldn't mind getting some more varieties. I like cherry shrimp, and know about ghost shrimp - but are there any other good ones to keep, a bit different? I don't have any large or aggressive fish in my tank, and it's fully planted. Does anyone else keep other kind of shrimp, if so what are they like and how is it caring for them? Thanks.

I keep Bamboo shrimp and I love watching them. They are fairly easy to keep if you tank is well cycled. They are filter feeders, so they like to have a plant or a decoration right under the filter outflow. Mine pretty much stay there all the time they feed off the tiny particules that come fromm the water. The only time they crawl around the gravel is when I do maintnance on the filters. I guess there isn't enough food for a day or two. Here is pick of the one with my goldie.:)
