he Wood Shrimp is an attractive shrimp with thin horizontal red lines running down the body and a thick white stripe down the spine.



Probably one of the best filter feeding by nature but will eat pellets and wafers. They appreciate driftwood also.



Wood shrimp require salt water to reproduce. Thus far, there have been no reported successes in captivity.

The shrimp is clawless and therefore harmless to fish. Should not be kept with large cichlids or aggressive fish however as it will be viewed as a meal. Same size shrimp are easily kept with the species also. Tetra and mid sized non aggressive fish are common tankmates.



Besides the difference in size (Males are generally larger), gender can be determined by the legs. While females have all three pairs close to the same size, males forelegs are much larger than the other two pairs. The Wood Shrimp is best kept in a heavily planted aquarium. Your shrimp may starve if your water is pristine, as they feed on suspended particles in the water.
