The Amano Shrimp, (Caridina multidentata) has become one of the most popular shrimp in the aquarium hobby due to its appetite for algae, they also consume leftover foods and detritus and that makes them a perfect cleaner addition. A very well established freshwater aquarium with plants and mature substrate is the ideal setup for this busy shrimp. The Amano shrimp tolerates a wide variety of parameters but is very difficult to breed due to the shrimp migrating into brackish water to raise its larvae to maturity.
