Howzit, cool looking shrimp! Is it local? I've been looking for one, want to do the goby/shrimp thing in a nano one day. But I recently heard they might catch fish? That put me off a bit.. Previously thought only other shrimps were at risk...

He's dead :( My sump has been offline for over a week because my tank has been sold, found this guy while digging out the old sand.

Yip, I put him in there for the sole purpose of killing him, it gave me so much gratification seeing it's lifeless body laying in a clump of sand. :nono:

But seriously, this guy must have spent most of his days under the sand because I used to inspect my sump regularly for all the little life forms running around in there and not once did I see him, and I had no rocks or anything on top of the DSB for him to hide in.
