I gave Pug some ghost shrimp yesterday to see if he was shrimp-safe. As you can see, there is a half eaten shrimp in the bottom left of his photo, and he is super fat. So no, he is absolutely not cool with shrimp!
At least you can tell in the photo that his tail is regrowing wonderfully. (When I bought him, he had a huge chunk almost entirely missing.)
I took some pics while she ate, and oh my god I have the dumbest looking animal alive.
Edit: Pics 1 & 3 are swallowing motions for clarification and they look ridiculous I’m cryin’. I didn’t even know she COULD close her mouth so extremely like in the first pic. The teeth?? How is she not stabbing herself?? What a strange creature.
Water level is low enough that this seems like a viable perch for her today? Very cute. She came up to beg for food, attempting to stare me into submission, and then went back to her perch. The pics are garbage (glare) but I thought it was super cute!
