    I have a single glass shrimp left - he came in as a rogue and is rather large now (2") and slightly predatory with his long pincers

    They are good shrimps to house with discus and if anyone wants him I will send him FOC with an order

    Predatory and long pincers? Are you sure that your glass shrimp isn't a macrobrachium lanchesteri rather than the shrimp usually referred to as glass shrimp Paleomonetes species?

    Just curious really, as I have seen macrobrachium lanchesteri labled as glass shrimp on german breeders sites regularly.
