I bought 3 "Bamboo Shrimp" at a Petco the other day. I've seen them, or
a similar shrimp listed as wood shrimp in the past. I have a photo in a
book of another similar shrimp and it calls it a brine shrimp, but gives
the scientific name Atyopsis moluccensis. At any rate it's a filter
feeding shrimp, about 3 or so inches long. For now I have them in a
little 2.5 gallon tank with a air stone, piece of wood and some
hornwort. I've tried green water, OSI APR and some little bugs
(ceriodaphnia I think or something like that). They seem to be ok but I
was wondering if someone might know what the best diet is for them, and
tank set up. I believe the like a good current.

I know this isn't a native animal, but I know a lot of you keep other
unusual things so I thought maybe someone might know.
