    That looks like the perfect little KIS tank.

    Looks like more shrimps on the way, what ever you are doing do not change a thing.

    Again fantastic photos.

    Again beautiful photos.

    If you wanted to start studying shrimps those would be a great starting point as they are so transparent.
