In my experience these shrimp are excellent cleaners and fun to watch. They shed like the other inverts and ours has grown to about 3 1/2 inches.

I have 1 bamboo shrimp in a 10 gallon tank with a few live bearers, a loach, 2 dwarf frogs, and danios. It is planted well enough and with enough obstructions to relieve the stress of a smaller tank. Anyway, back to Buhhda(my shrimp). Very neutral when it comes to his tank mates. He typically is perched where the filter system pushes water out. Now let it be known- If your shrimp is combing the bottom looking for food, he isnt being fed properly. They are meant to catch their food stationary with their fan arms. I’ve had him for about 2 months and he has molted twice and probably tonight will molt again given his behavior. What I have learned is they like to be about mid to upper part of the tank so provide suitable climbing structures. Mine has only gone to the bottom of the tank to find a spot to hide and molt. Typically fish will not bother these guys. However, when my clown loach(which I just got today to get rid of my awesome colony of snails) gets biger I will have to relocate him. Let it be known, my tank was less than a month old when I put him in it, and out of all my trials and errors(alas poor fish, I knew them well) He get adjusted rather quikly. Also side note before I submit, these guys grow fast. Mine has like I said molted twice and is now the biggest thing in the tank! Best of luck to all you who decide to add them to your tank, you will not be dissapointed.
