    Anybody keep Malawa Shrimp?

    Someone near me has offered to trade me some Malawa shrimp if I want them but I don't know much about them. I know they're Sulawesi shrimp but that's about it. Has anyone had any experience with these that could give me some advice?

    Super hardy, breed like rabbits, can live in a wide range of conditions, change Colors slightly but majority look brown. Not bad shrimp usually fairly cheap at meetings sell for the same price as cherry shrimp, they won't interbreed with neo or caridinia.
    THE CAKE IS A LIE!

    I just bought some at last months meet, like Carlo said they're survivors. I enjoy their color variation and markings which makes it easier to tell which one is which between them. They made a good addition to my tank and I don't regret at all buying them.
