If you are looking for a alternative to shrinp in your agresive tank then maybe you should trie a large cobalt blue lobster-they are very cool looking

It also depends on what gravel you use; on my black gravel they show up quite nicely. :)

I wouldn't go with lobsters or crayfish. Even if your fish are big, they will still attack your fish and eat smaller ones.
They are best kept by themselves.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
