Product Description

Amano Shrimp

Amano Shrimp or Caridina multidentata are a freshwater species of shrimp native to Japan and Taiwan. They were introduced into the aquarium hobby by Takashi Amano in the early 1980’s. They are widely popular among planted tank enthusiasts as they eat algae off of plants and substrate. These shrimp grow to 3+ inches in length and display clear body coloration that can change during breeding to different hues of red, blue, and green. They can cohabitate with small fish species, snails, and dwarf freshwater shrimp. They can tolerate a wide range of water parameters and work in almost any aquarium setup. Along with a steady source of algae and natural biofilm, these shrimp eat any shrimp specific pellet food or bottom feeder wafer.

Discalimer: Amano shrimp range in sizes. They may arrive blue but will revert back to clear after a few weeks.

You will receive amano shrimp that are at least .5 inches and up to 1.5 inches in size. They will be healthy and guaranteed alive.

    finally!

    I’ve bought Amano shrimp from local stores. I’ve bought them mail order— I bought them from a mail order live fish not! company. So i’m conditioned to loosing 1/3 the order in teh first week. NOT SO with Flip— 20 ordered and I got 22 ! They were all very lively and projected health. The bag water was still sweet. So many orders from other sources had foul water on arrival. In short two thumbs up and all 22 are alive, eating algae and exploring, Thanks Flip's

    Bold and Beautiful Water Crickets!

    My previous beloved Amano colony all died of old age. I waited a few months, ordered the 5 pack of Amanos and received 6. I have had them for a little over a month now, and all 6 are healthy. Molting and growing rapidly! A bit timid at first, but now they feel at home. I love watching their antics, Amanos behave like no other shrimp! Some of them are now brave enough to swim up and take food from my finger, which my previous Amanos enjoyed doing. (My female Bloody Marys will do this, too, but not the males)

    All shrimpies are beautiful, but Amanos will always hold a special place in my heart. I heartily recommend Rob and the gang for all your shrimpie needs! 💕

    All Amano shrimp arrived healthy and energetic!
