I did'nt raise this. :mrgreen:

Saw many small juveniles at a farm so decided to share the pics with you guys. These had been wild caught and many of them appear to have just settled out of larval phase, some where still in the midst of developing their color. Body length of these guys were about 2-2.5cm so they settle out rather large.

It's interesting indeed. First time I have ever seen post-settlement Ghost boxing shrimps for sale. There were a couple of them, perhaps around 4-5. Middle sized ones around 10 pcs.

Peter,

I wish that day would come. Now I just need to wait for my pair to produce some larvae for me to play around with. I love playing with Stenopus larvae, you can tumble them all around with air and you can net them. Makes changing water a breeze. :lol:
I love Artemac!
