I am not sure what a Cyrstal shrimp is, but suspect you have glass shrimp there.

Swan river goby (Pseudogobius olorum)
same as above
pigmy perch (not too sure if it is the same as the ones you find closer to the metro area, there is another species down south (local one is Edelia vittata, the other I think is Nannoperca australis, I would have to look this up later)
the last is the common glass shrimp, I'll have to look up the scientific name on that one too.

They are to be found in almost all flowing water ways from fresh to brackish, and all along the south west coast. Spot lighting them in the local river in the evening is the easiest for me.
6cm average max size, but I have seen bigger.
Sometimes you can find them in some LFS. These are generally pond cultured and are cleaner.

Ancient thread, I know, but I'm a little intrigued with how you caught the Munda in Boddington? I thought they were only found up to Margaret River?

Indeed, after an entire decade of inactivity, haha.
I only found this thread recently though, and the question is one that I've found no answer to.

Boddington is a little far though, Margaret and Blackwood rivers are the northernmost catchments of the main population. But yeh, it's possible, however I assume that these small pockets contain only a few individuals.

its a washed out occidentalis. nigrostriata is found a bit further up around Perth but munda is south

Ah, that's less surprising. Occidentalis certainly is a widespread species, so it would be far more likely to be found in areas around Boddington, than Munda.
I assume you're referring to the Melaleuca Park and Lake Chandala populations of Nigrostriata.
