General Information: Semi-transparent base colour with have rows of black spots down their sides and a distinctive brown stripe down their back.
Tank Requirements: See Minimum Tank Volume and Minimum Tank Size above
Diet Requirements: To some degree they will eat algae, but they're omnivorous scavengers and will eat anything they can find. A mixed diet with occasional extra veg is good,but they love a good algae wafer.
Compatibility: Very peaceful addition to any community, but avoid invertebrate predators.
Recommendations: A well planted mature tank without aggressive bottom feeders.
Common Problems: Without a well planted tank they could starve. They need excellent quality water and as with other invertebrates various medications can kill them (avoid copper and check all medication carefully).
Sexing: The second row of dots are dashed on the female and the male is generally smaller. Only in salt water
Breeding: Difficult as the adult shrimp cannot tolerate saltwater and the larval stage cannot tolerate freshwater. Research and spare breeding tank required.
