Caridina Breviata - 1cm
The New Bee Shrimp lives in streams in southern China and Hong Kong and has been one of the first algae eating shrimp to enter the aquarium hobby.
This freshwater shrimp breeds readily in aquaria and has the "candy cane" type stripes which are black/brown and white. Similarly to the Crystal Red Shrimp, there are variations in colours and there is an emphasis on breeding shrimp with bold and definitive stripes.
This shrimp thrives in soft, acidic to neutral water and therefore suits a planted aquarium.
