    lol i'm not too sure where you can get them, but i've heard them cracking through glass to get to small lights outside of the tank at night( so they think)
    Pretty cool little creatures, not actually a true shrimp tho, but they have had that name for a very long time

    Sokol & IJO,
    Check the names first. There are different types and while some are very pretty ( Peacock Mantis) others can be downright drab looking. This would obviously be as personal choice. Also, there are different types too as some are spearers and some are crushers. Do some reading first to know which you want.
