Amano shrimp are larger than dwarf shrimp like Crystal Reds and Cherry shrimp – they grow to about 3-4cm (~1,5 inch). They can easily be recognized from their greyish transparent bodies with rows of small dots on each side, and are sexed by looking at the bottom row: males will have a line of dots, females will have a line of longer dashes.

The Japonica Amano Shrimp, or Amano Shrimp, has gained popularity due to its large appetite for all kinds of freshwater algae. It will consume leftover fish food and detritus on the aquarium floor, making the Amano Shrimp an efficient cleaner that is also very interesting to watch. The Amano Shrimp is mostly opaque brown in color with a tan stripe that runs the length of the back. On their sides, there are many broken horizontal lines.

The Amano Shrimp is also known as the Yamato Numa-Ebi, or Japanese Swamp Shrimp and it originates from the swamps of Japan. The ideal setup for the Amano Shrimp is an established freshwater aquarium or pond of at least 10 gallons with plenty of hiding places and algae with a mature substrate. The Amano Shrimp should be housed with small peaceful fish or koi that will not pose the threat of eating it. The Amano Shrimp can tolerate low to moderate salinity levels, making them an ideal algae controller for ponds and water gardens in non-freezing climates.

The Amano Shrimp is very difficult to breed, and very few hobbyists have been able to raise the larvae to maturity. The average lifespan of the Japonica Amano Shrimp is 2 to 3 years in captivity.

Japonica Amano Shrimp is an omnivore that will consume algae, detritus and leftover food. If insufficient food is present, supplement with a quality flake food or pellet.

You must be present for the first shipping delivery. In the rare case of any dead on arrival, you need to take a digital picture of the dead shrimp with the plastic bag still sealed, within 30 minutes of delivery. Refunds will be given minus postage costs to us. 

  You need to take a picture of the bag next to the shipping label on the box. We apologize for the overly cautious act but we have been defrauded before.

I cannot deliver on weekends. Please keep in mind that I'm sending shrimps from Monday to Thursday Only!
