    Got myself a harlequin shrimp on the weekend. just fed him his first cape town starfish. he attacked it and started chowing down on it. hope he leaves my brittle star alone. This is by far the coolest shrimp ever

    He's definitely not going to leave your brittle star alone in my opinion...

    keeping a close eye on him. he hasn't taken any notice of the brittle yet. i think if i keep him well fed he'll be civilized. what ever he wants to eat he can cause he is so awesome i can't b mad at him. way 2 pretty.

    Definitely one of the best shrimp available (as long as you can feed them).

    Would love to see some pics.
