For the love of shrimp aquariums

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 17, 2014 09:00 AM
Who needs fish? Pedro Madeira is obsessed with the tiny Red Crystal and Sakura Shrimps who reside in his amazing tropical eden aquascape he calls Guangdong Forest. After watching his videos, we can appreciate his obsession.

Here are just three of Pedro's video.  He has a whole youtube channel mostly dedicated to his planted aquariums and their crustacean citizens, including this video of shrimp pooping ... yeah.


Red Crystal vs Sakura stand-off!  We're taking wagers on who backs down first.  These are tiny animals with big colors and even bigger personalities; It's easy to understand why so many aquarist fall in love with these beautiful little shrimps.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
