1. All I can hear is one song… “Jump in the Line” – Harry Belafonte.. ::shake shake senora..::

  2. I wish I could chill in this tank and have funny little gloves like the shrimps.

  3. Are these just different variants of crystal shrimp? They kinda look like neocaridina (cherry shrimp) but with crystal shrimp (Caridina) colors.

  4. i feel like that opening song in frozen where they moving the ice would be perfect!

  5. I got out of the hobby a few years ago after I broke down my tanks to move house. A planted shrimp tank was always something that I wanted to try but never got around to. Maybe some day…

  6. Busy little grazers….

  7. They’re so cute! It’s like they’ve all got white gloves on

  8. What are the little clear creatures creeping along? Are those snails?

  9. I really want to put this to fast beat Irish river dance music.

  10. Awaiting my tank to cycle and grow algae so I can get shrimp

  11. Do these shrimp grow and shed?

  12. I like the white arms/legs. You can see them eating.

  13. They are so lively. Just dancin’ and swayin’.

  14. So cute and industrious!

  16. Some interesting information per google search:

    The Cardinal Sulawesi Shrimp is an exceptional dwarf shrimp species that is fairly new to the aquarium hobby. Native to the very unique Sulawesi lake system in Indonesia, it was discovered only a few years ago and is now being bred in small numbers by expert shrimp farmers and breeders. It has become increasingly popular to aquarists in a very short period of time due to its incredible coloration, which is an overall bright red or scarlet with numerous small, white spots, as well as white antennae and front appendages.

    While it is a completely peaceful and very small dwarf shrimp, the Cardinal Sulawesi Shrimp requires a few different water conditions than most other dwarf shrimp and should only be kept by the experienced, dedicated aquarist. The aquarium should mimic Sulawesi conditions, especially a high temperature of 78° – 88° F and a pH of 7.8 – 8.2, although some breeders have reported success with a pH as low as 7.0. We keep our specimens at a pH of 7.8 – 8.2. Water flow must be very calm and water changes should be kept to a minimum other than the replacement of evaporated water. Both adults and fry require full freshwater.

    This shrimp is a scavenger and is very useful in planted and nano aquariums. The bulk of its diet is biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter so it will work diligently to clean up the waste in any aquarium. It feeds constantly, so it displays constant activity. The Cardinal Sulawesi Shrimp particularly likes to pick biofilm from rockwork and, if present, the shells of Sulawesi snails. This shrimp requires very little or no supplemental feeding in a well-established aquarium.

    The Cardinal Sulawesi Shrimp is more challenging to keep than many other dwarf shrimp, but will thrive and breed readily when kept in optimal conditions.

  17. Beautiful.

    What song?
