    it's the moss
    if you go to bioplast, you can see a whole lot of miniscule shrimp hiding in the adundant moss
    it's really very fun to see them
    bet you spend a lot of time staring at ur tank now, huh? []

    Nice shrimps, may I know where can I get them and the temperature suitable for them?
    Price wise?

    hi jhseah.. u can try Nature Aquarium but the queue is very long.. heard got 300 order of the tiger shrimps.. the Tiger shrimp's breeder cannot meet the demand.. Cost at $1.5 for one. and tiger shrimp can survive at 30 deg but best if u have 28deg or below.. cheers

    hi taffyong...

    sorry .. right now i left only 4 tiger shrimps.. maybe u can post and ask from other AQ members.. guess they might have more..

    the shrimp at bioplast in the tank are not malayans
    i can't tell what they are, but they have some stripes reminiscent of the tiger
    apparently there's also another type that's a little reddish too hiding in the tank

    that tank contains malayans, yamatoes and the a/m strange shrimp
    you look at the super small one you can see tiny stripes at the sides
    all it needs are the wood shrimp ^ ____ ^
    and yes, they have a boatful of guppies (which do look very nice)

    hi kenny..

    e tank temp.. is 28deg.. got a small AC fan mounted on top..
    i changed 1/3 water everyweek..
    i dun really feed them.. the tiger shrimps quite like the moss.. and the algae in my tanks.. .. and they also like to eat the leftover tetrabits.. when i feed the pencil fish..

    those tiny shrimps at Bioplast is known as Taiwan shrimp (according to NA), selling at 30c each. Quite hardy but make sure they don't get eaten. One good thing is they can get through thick hairgrass to reach the hair algae, saw them nibbling on them but how effective dont know yet.
