Wood shrimps can grow up to 8-12cm in length. It's also know as the 'Asia Filter Shrimp' or 'Bamboo Shrimp'. If fed enough food, they will turn a nice dark red and develop a white line down their back. It is also a filter feeding shrimp, "and has two pair of specialized webbed, fan-like, appendages instead of claws. They use these to filter algae and microorganisms from the water, effectively acting as a biochemical filtration system". Damn cool right!

Besides these 3 additions, we also bought 2 Thai Gourami to replace the Honey Gourami, but they died shortly after, possible due to attacks from other fishes as they were too small to be a threat(when I saw one of it part of the tail was nibbled off)
The Polka Dot Loach body pattern has been gradually changing since we bought it. Spots are already starting to form on it's body. Below is one of the pictures that I managed to take, but they're too active to get a clear shot. It'll be exciting when more changes take place :D
