These are common fella's in the slightly warmer waters of our coastline. Their full names, are: "Sand shrimps (Scientific name: Palaemon peringueyi)
Ya - I used to collect tons of them in the Strand rock pools to feed to my blue ribbon eel at the time. I kept them in a small tank with an airstone for weeks and fed them pelets until they become supper for the eel.
