The puffer always wins. He lets the shrimp have a temporary victory by eating the worm and later the puffer eats said shrimp thus meaning: EPIC WIN!
WARNING: Puffers are mischievous little blimps with enchanting powers. You may not be content with having just one.

Ghost shrimp are pretty darn smart when it comes to food. I see them sometimes grab a bloodworm and hold it while they swim and grab another.
There are many knowledgeable fish keepers on this forum willing to help and give great advice...The advice is free; What you choose to do with it gives it value.

Well, I have to admit it should be a winner! It is a great shot.

If the photographer turns up, we need to invite them in! I would love to see that shot on the Home Page from time to time.
