This is a native Australia shrimp species found in the NT. They are quite good algae eaters but DAS are better.
These shrimp are quite colorful when fully grown, and have a long red rostrum (or nose). This shrimp can grow to approx 4cm but is usually smaller!
This is quite an active shrimp that enjoy swimming about all over the tank often 'floating' in mid water. It has been bred successfully in fresh water.
