 Hi,
 
 Recently  I  got  these  wild  caught  shrimps  from  a  friend.
 They  are  caught  in  lake  Garade  in  saswad  (About  22  Kms  away  from  Pune)
 
 What  shrimps  are  these?  Wood  or  Ghost  ?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Pardon  me  for  the  pics  .  Most  of  them  look  simillar  to  each  other  Smile

 Dont  think  it  is  either  of  the  above.  Tell  people  it  is  from  Sulawesi  and  they  will  believe  you.   Smile  
 
 Excellent  photography.   Thumb Up

 Lovely  pics.  Thumb Up
 
 I  caught  some  of  these  on  the  way  back  from  Bhimashankar.
 
 On  a  different  note,  Its  been  a  long  time  since  I  saw  a  tar  and  aluminium  frame  tank...  Takes  me  back  to  decades  ago  when  I  used  to  repair  my  tanks  with  melting  tar  and  the  smell  pervading  the  house  Very Happy
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Thank  you  everyone  for  appreciating.
 I  personally  liked  these  pics  more  for  the  colors  that  the  shrimps  are  sporting.
 Honestly,
 I  was  amazed  to  see  that  they  look  so  different  in  the  pics  than  in  real.
 When  I  got  them  in  my  tank  first,  they  had  travelled  from  my  friends  place  in  a  plastic  bag  over  a  bike  on  a  sunny  afternoon.
 The  water  in  the  bag  was  actually  warm  and  the  shrimps  were  looking  yellowish  in  color  and  I  didnt  like  them  at  all.
 Now  after  a  week,  they  have  settled  in  the  tank  .
 Since  the  tank  was  setup  newly  for  them  ,  I  have  been  doing  50%  WC  every  alternate  day.
 They  didnt  accept  pellets  but  they  do  like  dried  bloodworms.
 I  had  put  in  a  blanched  spinach  leaf  yesterday  and  they  have  eaten  that  up  too.
 
 On  the  identifcation,
 I  am  more  confused  with  so  many  replies  ranging  upto  sulawesi  Smile
 I  hope  someone  identifies  them  correctly.
 
 @Pradeep.
 This  the  first  time  I  have  gotten  shrimps.  I  hope  to  keep  them  and  will  be  glad  if  I  could  breed  them.
 Once  they  do,  I  will  be  glad  to  give  them  to  you  Smile  
 Will  keep  you  posted

 Rohan  these  are  the  Red  Clawed  ones.  
 
 Man  they  are  ambush  predators  and  fish  eaters!  
 
 I  had  them  polish  off  6  Albino  Cory's  about  2  cm  in  length  in  3  days.  The  Cory's  were  bred  by  Adip.  I  caught  them  killing  the  last  one,  all  the  time  wondering  where  the  fish  disappeared.
 
 They  lie  in  wait  for  a  fish  and  then  rake  the  gills  of  the  fish  with  their  long  claws.  The  fish  does  not  sense  any  movement  of  the  claws.
 
 With  each  rake  the  fish  gets  weaker  and  finally  collapses.  They  then  move  in  and  cart  the  carcass  away  to  devour.
