Bamboo / Rock / Fan Shrimp Atyopsis moluccensis 2-5cm

Description

Bamboo shrimp, also known as wood shrimp, Asian filter feeding shrimp, or Atyopsis moluccensis, are fascinating freshwater invertebrates commonly kept in aquariums. Here are some key points to consider for their care:

  1. Temperature: Bamboo shrimp prefer a temperature range of 22-26°C (72-79°F). Maintaining stable water conditions within this range is crucial for their health and well-being.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: Given their filter-feeding behavior and relatively large size, bamboo shrimp require a tank with a minimum capacity of 10 gallons (approximately 38 liters) to ensure they have enough space to move around and find food.

Bamboo shrimp are peaceful and sociable creatures that do well in community tanks. They are primarily filter feeders, using their specialized fan-like appendages to catch microorganisms and particles from the water column. As such, they require a constant supply of tiny food particles to thrive. Some suitable food options include powdered commercial foods, such as powdered algae or powdered invertebrate foods, that can be added to the water column.

Additionally, it's important to maintain good water quality and provide moderate water flow in the tank to ensure an adequate supply of food particles for the shrimp to feed on. However, excessive water flow can stress them, so it's crucial to strike a balance.

Regular water changes and the use of a reliable filtration system are essential for maintaining optimal water quality. Ensuring the tank has a matured biofilter helps maintain stable water parameters and prevents the accumulation of harmful substances.

Lastly, providing a well-planted aquarium with smooth substrate and some driftwood or rocks can help create a natural environment for them. Bamboo shrimp are generally not demanding in terms of decorations, but providing a natural setting can enhance their well-being.
