Description: Tiger shrimp is easy shrimp to keep suitable for wide water parameters but generally slightly harder water than Crystal Red/Black. These are ideal to help you to clean your tank of uneaten food and algae. They are adaptable to wide range of water parameters but for successful breeding and raising offsprings specific water parameters must be provided. They look amazing and have interesting personality. You will receive them of different size and sex (mostly 1-1.5cm)

Appearance: Tiger shrimp coloration may vary but usualy has transparent body with black stripes. Mutations may occur for example instead of black stripes you may get brownish stripes also shrimp may get blueish or reddish hue.

Feeding: Omnivore with majority of vegetable content. Overfeeding of protein can cause health issues. Shrimp will feed on tank algae, algae waffers and almost anything thrown to aquarium.

Breeding: If water conditions are good shrimp will breed readily when matured (3-4 months old). Shrimp will carry around 20-30 eggs for around 30-35 days of gestation period. After this period fully developed shrimplets are released. Raising offspring's is more difficult than for neocaradina sp. and females usually carry less eggs and takes longer to grow up.

Tanks mates:  Small fish or shrimp of similar size. Mixing with other caridina will deliver mixed offspring's and is not recommended. Can be mixed with any neocaridina sp. without producing mixed offspring's.

Size: Males 1.5-2cm Females 2-3cm

Aquarium size: Minimum 12-14L

Difficulty: Easy, slightly more fussy about water then cherry shrimp.

Water parameters: 17-23C Degrees, PH Range 6.5-7.2, TDS 80-180
