So the reason he never comes out is because he is happy? I guess I am going to pickup a power head so I actually see this guy(would that work?)richie.p said:If he's happy feeding where he is he'll stay there but if food gets scarce he'll rummage on the bottom, they like strong current its where they pick up practicals so he may even climb in the tank to get a better spot, I know of one that's made his home in the filter and never comes out
Ok, I guess I’ll get him a friendrichie.p said:if he can get to the current but it may be ok where he is otherwise hed be forraging what I've also found they do better in pairs they seem to come out more.
It was actually a picture you posted of a vampire with smaller shrimp on his back that mad me think,”don’t I have one of those? Yes I do! How did he get his out in the open?!” So I made this thread lolrichie.p said:if he can get to the current but it may be ok where he is otherwise hed be forraging what I've also found they do better in pairs they seem to come out more.
I just saw mine this morning before the lights came on after over a month of not seeing him, then he went back into hiding as soon as the lights came onrichie.p said:They are a shy creature by nature but given time they slways make an appearance sometimes I think theyve died becsuse ivd not seen them thdn suddenly they appear
The good thing about my lfs is they have the vampire shrimps listed as bamboos, so I can get them for under $4 lolrichie.p said:He must be coming out at night then if you get him a buddy I think you'll see more of them. What a good reason to buy another, just in case you don't know when you look at them in the lfs make sure all four front legs are attached with their feeding fans on
Yeah, I know, I was already running power head, I guess he didn’t like it’s positioning but he likes this one lolrichie.p said:They do prefer a nice flow mine sometimes go into the very strong flow you can also aid their feeding by putting in baby shrimp food powder or even very finely ground flakes into the flow
