Snow White Amano Shrimp

Description

The Snow White Amano Shrimp, also known as Caridina multidentata, is a freshwater shrimp species that is popular in the aquarium hobby. However, it's important to note that the Snow White Amano Shrimp is different from the Crystal Red Shrimp, which is also sometimes referred to as Amano Shrimp (Caridina japonica). 

  1. Temperature: The recommended temperature for Snow White Amano Shrimp is between 68°F to 78°F (20°C to 26°C). They can tolerate a relatively wide range of temperatures within this range.

  2. Minimum Size Tank: A minimum tank size of 5 gallons is recommended for keeping Snow White Amano Shrimp. However, larger tanks are generally better for maintaining stable water conditions.

Feeding Habits: Snow White Amano Shrimp are omnivores and are known to be excellent algae eaters. They also consume detritus, leftover fish food, and other organic matter in the aquarium. Supplement their diet with high-quality shrimp pellets or algae wafers.

Habitat Preference: These shrimp are native to freshwater streams and rivers in Japan. In the aquarium, they appreciate a well-planted environment with hiding places and surfaces for algae to grow.

Water pH Level: The ideal pH range for Snow White Amano Shrimp is around 6.5 to 7.5.

Behavior: Snow White Amano Shrimp are generally peaceful and non-aggressive. They are known to be good tankmates for many freshwater fish, but caution should be exercised with larger or more aggressive species that might see the shrimp as food.

They are primarily bottom-dwellers, and you'll often find them foraging for food on the substrate.

Color: As the name suggests, Snow White Amano Shrimp are mostly white or translucent. They have a clean and sleek appearance, and their coloration can be affected by factors such as diet and water conditions.

Other Details: It's important to provide a well-established tank with stable water parameters. They do best in tanks with low to moderate lighting.

Remember to acclimate them carefully when introducing them to a new tank, and avoid sudden changes in water parameters. Regular water changes and proper tank maintenance are crucial for the health and well-being of Snow White Amano Shrimp.
