The Yellow Shrimp is a bright and lively addition to any freshwater aquarium. These shrimp are known for their vibrant yellow coloration and their active and curious nature. They are a great option for aquarium hobbyists who are looking to add some variety and movement to their tank.


Yellow Shrimp are relatively small, reaching an average size of around 1-1.5 inches (2.5-3.8 cm) in length. They are easy to care for, with a temperament that is generally peaceful and non-aggressive. They are also quite hardy and can adapt well to different water conditions.


In terms of diet, Yellow Shrimp are omnivorous and will eat a variety of foods, including algae, vegetables, and small pieces of meat or fish. They are also known for their ability to help keep the aquarium clean, as they will eat algae and other debris from the tank.


It is recommended to keep Yellow Shrimp in a tank with plenty of hiding places and vegetation, as they prefer a natural and varied environment. A tank size of at least 5 gallons (19 liters) is recommended for a small group of these shrimp.
