Space is premium in the inner west. So sometimes having a pet is out of the question. Dog? Yeah, requires a lot of space and energy and cleaning. Cat? Ok, but needs to be managed to protect local birdlife. Rabbit? Would love a Flopsy, but the last one ate through all the cables in the lounge room.
Off to aquarium world then… and I discovered shrimps! Well, actually, my man stumbled on them – he always has the best ideas so this time I’m stealing his thunder. I confess, these little beauties provide hours of entertainment… and there I go, just admitting my inner nerd.
But they do. They’re cute, they’re busy, they’re easy to look after and they make a great table feature. They’re like the next step up from Sea Monkeys. Remember them?
