Wow, this is a first sighting for CNM. Just curious the size of this shrimp? I'm guessing it was very small but curious as to just how small?

It was a while ago so I can't be sure but I seem to remember them being something like 2-3 cm. I'd expected them to be much smaller and I was certainly suprised to see them in such an urban wetland!
