    Yes , but good or bad in a non preditor tank?
    I found him when I was trying to collect copepods with a torch - the small things I got seem more like amphipods or sea lice?
    THANKS

    It's a Paenid shrimp of some species - we call them swimming prawns and it's the family that are served in most restaurants in SA. I've got them in my tanks and they are an awesome part of my CUC.
