Amano Fresh Water Shrimp (5 Nos)

The Amano Fresh Water Shrimp (Caridina multidentata) is a popular and hardy addition to any freshwater aquarium. Known for their excellent algae-eating abilities and peaceful nature, Amano Shrimps are ideal for both beginner and experienced aquarists. They are native to Japan and Taiwan and have been widely celebrated for their effectiveness in keeping aquariums clean.


  • Size: Adult Amano Shrimps typically reach about 2 inches in length.
  • Color: These shrimps are translucent with a hint of grey or brown, and may display small dark spots or stripes along their bodies.
  • Lifespan: They have an average lifespan of 2-3 years with proper care.
  • Behavior: Peaceful and non-aggressive, making them suitable for community tanks.
  • Diet: Primarily feed on algae, but can also consume fish food flakes, pellets, and blanched vegetables.
  • Tank Size: Minimum recommended tank size is 10 gallons.
  • Water Parameters: pH level between 6.5-7.5, water temperature between 70-80°F (21-27°C).
  • Breeding: Breeding Amano Shrimps in a home aquarium is challenging as larvae require brackish water to survive.

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Setup: Provide plenty of hiding spots using plants, driftwood, and rocks to make them feel secure.
  • Water Quality: Maintain clean water with regular water changes (20-30% weekly). Ensure the water is free from copper as it is toxic to shrimps.
  • Feeding: While Amano Shrimps primarily consume algae, supplement their diet with high-quality fish food flakes, algae wafers, and occasional blanched vegetables like spinach or zucchini.
  • Tank Mates: Amano Shrimps are peaceful and can be housed with other non-aggressive fish and invertebrates. Avoid keeping them with large, predatory fish.
  • Acclimation: Gradually acclimate Amano Shrimps to your aquarium water by floating the bag and slowly adding small amounts of tank water over an hour.


  • Excellent algae cleaners, helping to maintain a clean and healthy aquarium environment.
  • Peaceful nature makes them suitable for community tanks.
