Re: Aggressive Shrimp #1
I'm considering getting a bigger tank at the moment anyway, but then it would mean finding somewhere for my old one to go etc.

Mabey the LFS will be the best option all round.

Re: Aggressive Shrimp #2
Seems such a shame, as he's so good to watch

Re: Aggressive Shrimp #4
Unfourtunatley, he's already got one of my frogs

Poor little fella

I don't have another tank to put the shrimp in, so can't decide what to do. He won't survive in the pond

Re: Aggressive Shrimp #5
Yep. He killed all the other shrimps, nips all the fish I've got, and whenever he catches one, eats it whole :( I've seen it happen to a cherry barb, the other day!

Re: Aggressive Shrimp #6
All the usual...

Neons, Tiger Barbs, Bleeding heart tetras, etc...

Also just got 2 congo frogs, hopefully they'll survive ok with him.

Aggressive Shrimp #7
Hi everyone, this is my first post on here - So be nice :)

A while ago I purchased 5 Algae Eating Shrimps for my tank, however, it turned out as they grew bigger, one of the 5 was different...

After doing some research, I believe it's a Red Clawed Shrimp. My problem is, he's very aggressive and over the past month or so, is getting worse :(

I don't want to get rid because he's so interesting to watch. Any ideas how I could calm him down, or will I just have to live with it??

Oh.. and he's already eaten all his friends :P

Thanks in advance.

David.
