    awesome, its amazing how small they are! What do you usually feed it? is that just shrimp meat or something?
    I never usually feed it directly, but it takes everything I have ever thrown in my tank. I have never seen it do this, but they will also munch on micro brittle and asterina starfish. Which is fine because I have millions of both of those. They are really small, about the size of a fingernail, but they have tons of personality. It is always motoring around the tank right in front of the glass. When it swims it is pretty funny looking. It is similar to when big fat bumblebees fly. I have owned pom pom crabs, two varieties of pistol shrimp, boxing shrimp, cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp, porcelain crabs and a few others and the bumblebee is still my favorite. The others were all really cool, but they never came out in the open.
