Saw this cool saltwater shrimp on youtube. Anyone tried keeping saltwater shrimps and are they easy to keep?

I have kept 2 types of marine shrimps in the past.

The Coral Banded shrimps (back then $60 a pair)

And the blood scarlet shrimp (back then was $200 a pair)

Very easy to keep and breed. Just hard to keep the babies alive :(

Just make sure you dont have any mantis shrimps in the tank, also no trigger fish and dont add copper :D

Marine shrimp are very nice indeed, just a bit more investment in equipment!

I keep a marine shrimp myself and find it is very easy to keep.
Also helps clean the live rock of nasty aptasia
I guess it depends on what kind of marine shrimp you are keeping
