    Hi all

    Saw this guy in my tank this morning. No idea where he came from or how long he has been there. He looks like a glass shrimp with black dots all over his body. Still very small, probably 1 cm.

    keep an eye on him, if growing past 2cm, then start to worry... But I doubt that.

    Cool critter.

    Definitely NOT a glass shrimp. Does he have a burrow?

    I only saw him today for the first time as I was feeding before leaving for work so have not had chance to really watch him [If I can find him again that is] but Ill definitely keep an eye on him
