CT_ Posted April 18, 2021 Share Posted April 18, 2021 I figure this is the right place for a random story. I was cleaning out my HOB today and found 4 shrimp in there trying to weave in and out of the coarse sponge. 2 of them were juviniles and I just dropped them back in the tank. the other two were tiny babies that i didn't notice until they fell into my sink. they were too small to scoop up in a spoon so I had to carefully give them something to hold onto and then tap them into a spoon. after a lot of trial and error I finally got the first one safely in my spoon and set it free in my tank! I watched it swim away only to get sucked up by a guppy 3 seconds later. 😲 I learned my lesson and released the second tiny baby shrimp into my floating plants. I feel like i went from a dozen shrimp that I never see to a carpet over run by shrimp in a few weeks. In any case, I have enough now so I'm not too sad but for whatever reason I was really not expecting that shrimp to get spotted and eaten so fast. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
