Amano Shrimp S – 10 pack


The Amano Shrimp is the OG of all freshwater shrimp.  These guys are the hardest working algae eating clean up crews out there and they’re hard to kill unlike most dwarf shrimp.  They are considered to be the catalyst for popularizing the dwarf shrimp hobby in the United States in the 1990’s. Amano Shrimp are very active as they scavenge the tank, cleaning up waste. They love to feed off of naturally occurring biofilm and algae, especially in a planted tank. Amano Shrimp can withstand a pretty wide range of water parameters, and their life expectancy can be up to 4 years if they are kept well. Amano Shrimp are versatile when it comes to water parameters, and this combined with their incredible cleaning capacity makes them a good option as tank companions. Amano Shrimp can be semi-aggressive, but do not typically present big problems as long as they are kept with appropriate companion species.
