Franquixote Posted November 12, 2015 Report Share Posted November 12, 2015 Hi all, I have a very well established tank, Fluval Edge, and over the past 5 years or so have introduced countless plants and such so I don't know if these are baby shrimp or what. I have lots of different shrimp, cherry reds mostly, and when I do a water change I never just dump stuff down the drain because even though I have a fine net over my siphon I still suck up some macro life and feel bad just dumping it. So as an experiment in May, I saw these guys zooming around the bucket and decided to see how long it would take for them to grow up and *if* they could survive life in a 5 gallon bucket with no filtration and just some live plants in the bucket and some natural light and of course food. Fast forward 6 months and they aren't getting any bigger and frankly I'm tired of the bucket lying around, getting cold, etc. so I dumped 99% back into the tank and saved a few to figure out what they are. Any ideas? Pics attached. This is a relatively big one at 3-4cm head to tail. You are seeing it taken under magnification.
