They are adaptable to wide range of water parameters but for successful breeding and raising offsprings brackish water parameters must be provided. They look amazing and have very brave personality.

Appearance: Amano shrimp coloration may vary but usualy has transparent body with small horizontal dots. Mutations may occur for example shrimp may turn slightly more blueish or reddish depends on water parameters and age.
