  2. Titch

    Just thought I'd post an updated photo of Titch who is growing well. He's still not on "solids" yet but I keep mixing some in with his Artemia every day. He does take the occasional piece of cyclopeeze so hopefully it won't be long before he's on the frozen.

    This is a photo of my Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni). I currently have two peppermint shrimp, 1 in the main tank and 1 in the sump (via the overflow!). I've had them for about 1 year now. They are quite shy and are rarely seen during the day. They like to eat anything they can get the claws on!!!
