Description

Offering Amano Shrimp (Caridina multidentata).

Identifiable by their clear carapace, with flecks of brown colouration, this species of shrimp is well known in aquaria for their algae eating affinity and generally peaceful natures.

Feeding almost exclusively on algae, this has boosted their popularity in aquascaping set-ups where algae is stringently targeted by hobbyists, giving this shrimp a niche role in tanks. They are known to be peaceful, however stories do exist of smaller shrimp and fish fry being targeted due to the amano’s opportunistic behaviour.

Aim to keep them in temperatures between 18 and 25 degrees, outside of this and they will quickly succumb. These fish won’t breed in freshwater due to a need for brackish conditions for their young.
