Sarah's Shrimp

Sarah has this wonderful aquarium with a number of interesting fish. She also has this magnificent shrimp. The colors are so astounding, that the shrimp doesn't seem real, except that it is always moving. Believe it or not, it was not that easy to get a sharp image of this guy - you can see that some of the antennae are blurry. This is a salt water aquarium by the way, and I was amazed when Sarah told me about how much maintenance is required to keep this environment healthy. She has to replace a significant amount of salt water on a regular basis. It is an amazing mini underwater world that she has created.

This is not like any shrimp I have ever seen or eaten.
I feel lucky to have stumbled onto this blog. You see so many things I would never see, often in a way I would never view them. You've provided knowledge on subjects otherwise unknown to me, which is stimulating--good for the brain. Your photographs are wonderful and your comments are informative. A very worthwhile blog for me to check regularly to see if there's something new to learn. I haven't been disappointed yet. Thank you.

I love what Anonymous commented. We learn so much from your photos & comments. Paul's brother had a salt water fish tank but no shrimp. This is amazing.
