Those of you that know me, know I suffer from MTS - Multiple Tank Syndrome. My friend @metrokat thought there was hope for me, but nope. NO HOPE!

Some information about SuperShrimp:

Why SuperShrimp? “Well, because they are the coolest, most easy to take care of, and one of the longest lived pets (20+ years) out there! “Easy” seems to be a fashionable word to use nowadays when it comes to advertising, even if it really does not describe what’s being sold accurately. In this case, though, it’s spot on. How about setting up an aquarium, and then never change water again…ever!? Yes, Supershrimp do not ever need a water change. How about a pet that needs food only once or twice a month? How about a pet that can live in a half a gallon aquarium….for over 20 years? How about having 50 pets in that half a gallon? Did we mention that they still don’t need a water change? All 50 of them. Supershrimp aren’t shy either. These blood red shrimp will run and swim around all day long, entertaining both children and adults practically forever. Forever? Yes, forever. Not only do these shrimp live over 20 years, they will also reproduce in your tank once they feel fully comfortable. One day you’ll discover tiny larvae floating around in your tank that will turn into miniature versions of the adults in two week’s time….and you don’t even have to feed the larvae as they come with their own food supply (yolk sac). This is truly the perfect pet. No matter if you want a small, portable super-nano tank on your office desk with 20-50 shrimp, or you want to emulate their habitats by having hundreds or thousands of these creatures in larger tanks, there is no other pet in the world that can keep up with the Supershrimp when it comes to ease of care, interesting behavior and characteristics, and long term fun that could be passed on from generation to generation. A true mini-habitat in your living room or office. – PetShrimp.com

This is sick! Hey are Peter and Jeremy from RNN on R2R? Wish I could enter this but I live internationally. A Mangrove tank with these shrimp would be awesome - hopefully you can get them in Europe (unlikely I know;)

Are we allowed to build our own pico tank?

Reason I ask is I have a fair amount of glass around and this is the perfect excuse to build a pico for my home office.
Sure! It just can’t be more than 2 gallons!
 

Have you ever been accused of talking to much about your tank?
