Hang out in front corner of tank

I am glad the shrimp seem to hang out in the front right corner most of the time. Not sure why. Must be something there that they are attracted to.

Hehe they are very social shrimp and always hang around together, they look nice and red and happy! Thanks for the share.

Cool. Looks like the shrimp in the middle is of the banded color morph that is clear in the middle. Looks like a rili shrimp.

I noticed that, but did not know what to think of it?

The banded one looks saddled. Over time those may or may not form. Hopefully they do.

Despite the coloration the shrimp is perfectly healthy. The clear banded shrimp is a color morph. I think it's unique and cool.
Although I don't see them too much in people's pics and videos of their tanks, in some anachialine pool populations it looks like it more widespread and might even be the dominant color form based on this pic i found.

I get a fair few banded ones breeding in my tanks.
