Description

Offering Yellow Fire Shrimp (Neocaridina heteropoda).

Eats mostly algae, however will eat carrion and prepared fish food. Is more accurately described as an opportunistic omnivore, detrivore, meaning that it will eat most any organic matter it can find. Some say it’s a better algae eater than the Yamato or Amano shrimp – Caridina japonica Shrimp will also eat microfauna that grows on the plants and glass of the aquarium, providing a wider variety of vitamins they need. If there is a light on the tank for long periods, say 10+ hours per day, the shrimp do not need to be fed at all as they graze on microfauna. When they are starving they will eventually eat some softer types of algae.
