Bamboo Shrimp - Atyopsis moluccensis Also commonly known as the Wood Shrimp. This beautiful shrimp is a filter feeder and does a great job feeding off the surfaces of the tank and eating matter off plants.  They particularly love hanging around the foam cover of the filters, catching and eating the debris that gets caught around that area. Size is about 1.5-2 inches.   Bamboo Shrimp are “detritivores” which means they collect particles in the water for food. With brush like hands they sift through an aquarium collecting food with a fun dance like movement. Very peaceful large invert that gets a rust red color with a cream stripe once comfortable. Great community addition!

    these are some of my favorite inverts for a tank! Large and bright red with a racing stripe, these gentle giants get stressed very easily. If you strive for crystal clear water, these big boys will actually starve. They don't take to transit well, and i actually lost one shortly after i dropped them into my quarantine tank. They do best in established tanks at least a year old. Blackwater tanks, or tanks with low filtration are where these guys thrive. If you seem scooping their fans on the substrate, they are hungry! Frozen daphnia in a tank with decent flow will happily feed them.
