    just googling on the net come across this site and got to the shrimp section browsing through and saw this...

    Red Lobsters look exactly like real lobsters – cooked lobsters – because most are actually quite red. They make very pretty and interesting tank residents (by themselves). Snap their large pincers off if you plan to keep them with your fish.

    WHAT! SNAP their pincers off!

    thats cruel

    here's the link if you want to see yourselfs

    :blink: That is shocking, and never thought anyone would stock that in their tank(by themselves); breeding yes, but keeping them with other fishes? NO

    WTF!?
    It's disgusting that people think they can be cruel to animals just because they don't have a backbone. :angry:



    "Vampire Shrimp" are filter feeders. This site doesn't know what it's talking about.

    There is no hard scientific evidence inverts can can fel pain, but there is no evidence they can't.

    Actually, there is scientific evidence that strongly suggests they're capable of feeling pain. Amongst other things, crayfish have opioid receptors just like humans.

    Actually, here's an article on it.
