    Fully Grown Size: 2-3 inches (5cm to 7.6cm)

    Amano Shrimps were founded and introduced to the hobby by Takashi Amano. They are native to Japan and Taiwan. Amano Shrimps are popular among the aquarium hobby because they can keep a tank algae free by eating leftover food and debris 24/7. they can be kept with nano fish similar size to the Amano shrimp.

    Amano Shrimps grows fast and can be semi-aggressive during eating periods. They do very well in heavily planted tanks and likes to scavenge throughout the tank. There are rare occasions where the amanos are able to crawl out of the aquarium.

    Amano Shrimps are easy to breed but due to the environment needed for the larvae, survival rates is hard maintain. Once a Amano gets berried, it can take up to 5 weeks to hatch. Once hatched, the larvae needs to be put in brackish water. In the nature, a stream takes the larvae near the ocean. After its larvae stage, it's crucial to move them back into freshwater or reduce the salinity level. Amano Shrimps take 4-6 to mature depending on its diet and environment 

    This shrimp is easy to care for as they require remineralized RO water or tap. If you are using tap, keep in mind to check for any harmful metals or chemicals in the water as all tap water is different and some aren't safe to shrimps.

    Late but great shrimp. Snails sucked.

    I ordered Amano shrimp and Nerite snails, and they were supposed to be delivered in 2-3 business days. About 7 days after placing my order I emailed and said where’s my order? They said they couldn’t get the Nerite snails, and asked if I wanted Horned Nerite snails instead. I said ok. Then 4 days later they said my order shipped. Sigh. When I got them, the shrimp were great! Large and healthy! Very happy with the shrimp (about 14 days after ordered them). But the Horned Nerite snails were tiny! Tiny! About the size of raisins. They couldn’t even traverse the gravel in my tank, they kept falling over. Very disappointed in the Horned Nerites. Waste of money for the snails. Very happy with shrimp. Whatevs.

    awesome

    I've had issues with buying amanos in the past but the 10 that I bought here all came in healthy, active, and ready to rock. Zero losses so far and they're just doing amazing in my tank. Love them

    A wonderful little clean up crew!

    I got these guys to help out with some algae in an established tank, and boy did they deliver! They arrived in such good condition, and acclimated to the tank almost immediately. Will definitely keep these in mind for future tanks.

    Lively shrimp and great service

    It's my first time having shrimp and they've been nothing but nice and helpful with my questions and concerns. The shrimp themselves have not only been lively and very active since day 1, but are also extremely beautiful as well.
