Assorted Caridina Shrimp (Caridina sp.), Tank-Bred
For those that love dwarf shrimp but are not interested in breeding a single color line, or for those that just want a complete mix of colors, we offer a “mixed bag” of young adult Caridina shrimp. The different color morphs can even breed together!
Each bag may include an assortment of colors and patterns, which can include red, blue, white, black (depending on current stock, repeated color are possible).Care for all species included is identical. These shrimp are comparably durable as well.
This shrimp is a scavenger and is very useful in planted and nano aquariums. The bulk of its diet is biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter, so it will work diligently to clean up the waste in any aquarium. Dwarf shrimp feed constantly, so they display constant activity. In a less mature aquarium, they should be fed high quality flake and mini pellet dry foods with high algae/spirulina/plant content.
