I wish I had a macro lense, but the cleaner shrimp is always a pig.

All those people who use the word "shrimp" fro something wimpy don't know shrimp like we know shrimp!

That is the spot where the pellets swirl after feeding. The snails like to sit there and wait while the shrimp "assumes the position" anytime I come to the tank.


I wish I could get a closer shot to see that he already has 5 or 6 pellets already in his stomach. :)


He'll spend the next couple of hours digesting and picking out the leftovers.


He molts about once every 2-3 weeks. They are such fun creatures, and add so much to a display.

I missed it the first time, but check out the nassarius snail trunk sticking out the sand, and it looks like another one is coming out the sand, and I cant tell if that's a snail or hermit behind the shrimp. I smell food!!
