This is a relative of the Amano algae eating shrimp. Looks like a Dwarf Black Amano sometimes with a bluish hue. These are great shrimp for consuming hair algae and algae on your plant’s delicate leaves. A must for all planted aquariums. Obviously you will not add these to a tank with hungry large carnivores, but these are compatible with all small peaceful community fish and all of the shrimp we sell.
Stocking Ratio: up to 6 shrimp per gallon
Minimum quantity for “Freshwater Shrimp – Dwarf Blackberry Shrimp Caridina cf. cantonensis” is 6.
