    Thought some members might find this amusing
    An amano shrimp was hanging on for dear life to a pellet meant for the platies.
    One of the platies clearly took exception to this and the result is this photo

    Add your own amusing conversation - mine goes like this:
    Platy: Oi matey I believe that's ours!
    Amano: Sod off! Finders keepers!
