    This is a native Australian shrimp species found in the NT that is renown for eating various types of algae, especially string type algae.

    The males are smaller and less colorful than the females. This shrimp is a relatively large species and can grow to approx 5cm.

    There has been little success in breeding this species in fresh water. The females become berried easily, but the fry do not survive. It is thought that only brackish water contains the food that the fry require.
