Not Louie got his name because I had a ghost shrimp named Louie who I felt needed a companion, so we got another one. They were hard to tell apart, but not impossible, so we thought it'd be funny to name the new ghost shrimp Not Louie. However, Louie died, so now we just have Not Louie, and it doesn't make much sense anymore!
In other news, he's a pretty cool animal companion. I love to watch him eat, because I can see his belly getting full, and it's cool.
Not Louie lives in my community fish tank with 2 female bettas, 1 aquatic snail, 1 aquatic frog, and 2 corydora catfish.
