Additional Comments

Very attractive small shrimp, ideal for nano tanks and planted tanks (ensure fish tankmates are of similar small size). Female shrimps become a rich cherry-red colour, the smaller males remain paler. Easily bred. Please note: avoid the use of copper based treatments if invertebrates are present in the tank.
