Shrimp Information:

The Amano shrimp were made popular by Takashi Amano in the '80s when he used them in his beautiful planted tanks, using the Amano shrimp as a cleaner shrimp, and effectively showing how hardy the Amano shrimp are in a wide variety of water parameters.

Amano shrimp typically have white/clear bodies but they are known to show green or blue hues. They also grow larger than other dwarf shrimp making them a good option if you keep nano fish and want shrimp.

Amano shrimp breeding is very difficult and borders on the rare side because the young babies that are hatched require salt to grow and mature into Amano shrimp. This is the opposite of the more common dwarf shrimp that are born as miniature versions of their parents.
