Super-expensive Blue bolt and King Kong shrimps are among the aquatic invertebrates on display at the 2012 Taiwan International Aquarium Expo this weekend.

The freshwater shrimp-breeding trend has become very popular in Taiwan in recent years, with some varieties fetching incredibly high prices.

These tiny shrimp had a price tag of NTS$100,000 (around £2,150) each — that's in the region of £100 a millimetre!

The 2012 Taiwan International Aquarium Expo will be held at Taipei World Trade Centre Nangang Exhibition Hall from November 9 to 12.

Check out the '200 year old' plec and the fluorescent angelfish that are also on display at the show.
