Okay, I know this may sound grim to some, but after all, it is their nature.
I saw one ghost shrimp not doing well for some unknown reason. It was laying on its side and kicking but not reacting much to external stimuli.
I grabbed the new camera to get a better view from a macro shot and after I did this, another ghost shrimp approach and started to eat the dying one. I decided to document this event on video.
Here’s a little video clip that I recorded after Tango figured out how to eat from my fingers and Techno doing it for the first time.
There were a few pauses when Tango was watching Techno eat and then get all excited when he saw me return to feed him.
My fish, like many others, seem to love getting into tight places. In this case, I had doubled up the panel in a spot where the two fish liked to flare at each other hoping to reduce that just a bit.
Turns out that Red just wanted to get between the panels, going through the “Tunnel of Doom” over and over again.
Don’t worry, Red was always safe, and was able to leave on his own. And after I removed the double panel, he found plenty of other places to get into.
