When wood shrimp are happy with their environment they will stay right in a strong current and filter water with their fans. It is not natural for them to pick up bits off the ground with their fans. I believe it is important to have plants with these shrimp you also NEED some place in the tank that has a strong current and some hard object that sticks into the current like a piece of wood.

This is how I lurk

Poor little guy. I see them at the petstore picking food from the subtrate, and when they do that it can indicate they are starving and not getting enough food.
Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard
Thanks. I was actually going to go out a buy a new heater tonight since mine wont get the water warmer than 75, and I have been adding salt and water changes, but I was going to get some medicine too, just gotta make sure it is ok with salt since i know there is one that start with the m. which you cant mix with salt.
