Vampire Shrimp - Atya gabonensis

Also commonly known as the Viper Shrimp, Gabon Shrimp or Giant African Filter Shrimp.

Despite their name, they are a very peaceful invert.

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.

    Shrimp arrived very active and once put in aquarium immediately found a place to latch onto and start feeding.

    I love these shrimp. They're so beautiful and so fun to watch when they're not being shy. Great and easy pets. Just do some research first!
