Beautiful! Looks like a good-sized shrimp...do these inhabit the waters near where you reside.

Reminds me of when my kids were young and we were fishing the Gulf of Mexico and I went to get bait and came back with a whole bag of beautiful, very large shrimp. We spent the day feeding those shrimp to the little fishies and didn't catch a thing. Turned out that I had bought shrimp for human consumption instead of bait shrimp.

Hey, what did I know from shrimp?

Jacob, this shrimp is about 5cms long and that's all it grows. It's native to some swamps in Japan.

Wonderful tanks you have Jose. I often wonder what you do for a living and if these pics are work or hobby related. :)

Wonderful! Although, my first thought was "yummy" :-D
