Flower Shrimp have specialized fans that allow them to filter feed instead of the claws you may expect to see on a shrimp. Their variable brown coloration allows them to blend with rock and wood while they stand on the water flow to collect small bits of food passing by. They are very entertaining to watch!

This shrimp is a larger species, reaching lengths of 3.5 inches males being larger than females. They can change color rapidly to blend with their environment and prefer a tank with lots of plants and cover. Flower shrimp are nice additions to peaceful tropical community aquariums, but should not be housed with fish that may nip at them. They feed on micro foods and particles that are floating in the water column as well as on algae and detritus.
