Considered one of the best algae eating additions for any aquarium. They are highly sought after by hobbyist and make great additions to any tank. Wont breed with other shrimp as they are kept in fresh water but their young need to slowly be acclimated to salt water. These can be kept in soft or hard water! This is one of the few shrimp we do not breed. My stock comes from a wholesaler. They do breed in my systems, but due to the intricacy of reering the young, we order them. They come in extremely healthy and large! Don't miss out on these algae destroyers!
