Product Description & Reviews
Amano Shrimp (Caridina multidentata), also known as Yamato Shrimp, grow about twice aslarge as dwarf shrimp and typically live much longer. These jumbo shrimp are clear andtranslucent with a bluish tint, and are covered in small, dark red dots. Unlike most dwarf shrimpspecies, Amano Shrimp only reproduce in brackish water, so they will almost certainly neverbreed in a home aquarium. Aquarium tops may be a good idea when keeping these shrimp, asthey are sometimes known to be jumpers!Like most shrimp, Amano Shrimp live in large colonies and spend most of their time foraging forfood. These active yet peaceful scavengers are possibly the most voracious aquarium algaeeaters you’ll find! There’s no need for algaecide if you have a colony of these shrimp, as theywill often eradicate even the most persistent algae growth on plants and aquarium decor. Thebulk of their diet is biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter, so they will work diligently toclean up the waste in any aquarium. However, they will not damage live plants. In a less matureaquarium, they can be fed flake and mini pellet dry foods with high algae/spirulina/plantcontent.Our large Amano Shrimp can make excellent companions to some small to medium sized fish.Scarlet Badis, Neon Tetras, Cardinal Tetras, Hatchet Fish, Plecos, and larger Rainbowfish are allamong the massive list of fish that would easily prey on dwarf shrimp, but are generallycompatible with large Amano Shrimp. This shrimp is an excellent option for the fish lover whowants to expand into shrimp. They can also be kept with most snails, like trap door snails andThorn Nerite snails.
