- , Glass Shrimp
- North America. Southern areas where the water temperature does not fall below 50°F (10°C)
Coloration:Clear, right behind the head the digestive system and organs are visible. Basic shrimp shape with antennas on head then legs and tail
- 1.25 years in captivity.
- Relatively easy, very sensitive to ammonia. Do not keep with fish a few inches bigger unless strict herbivores. Eat vegetable tablets, shrimp pellets, live, or flake food. Unlike the Amano shrimp these are not algae eaters and need a regular diet.
- Bare or Gravel
- Multiple hiding places with subdued lighting.
- Quiet, low-flow filtration is best. Although great swimmers they prefer not to.
- Stagnant pools and drainage ditches in the southern part of the continent.
Breeding:As long as the shrimp are kept in schools of at least 6 breeding will happen without stress. Frequent water changes can also cause breeding.
