overview
The Singapore Flower Shrimp comes from the fast moving waters of rivers and streams within Asia. They are interesting shrimp that are able to change colors very rapidly. Their coloration will range from tan to dark brown, and at times, even a bright red. The conditions that cause these shrimp to change color are unknown, but it is speculated that either their mood or the need for camouflage are the reasons. They are one of the larger freshwater shrimp attaining a maximum size of 3-1/2 inches. Their front six legs have fan-like appendages in which they use to filter the water for food. They are very interesting shrimp that will add a new dimension to your peaceful freshwater aquarium.

An established freshwater aquarium of at least 20 gallons with plenty of hiding places and mature substrate are the ideal setup for the Singapore Flower Shrimp. It should be housed with peaceful fish that will not pose a threat of eating these shrimp.

Differences between the sexes is easily noticeable with the male being larger than the female. They are extremely difficult to breed going through many planktonic stages before reaching miniature adult stage and need brackish to full strength saltwater.

Singapore Flower Shrimp are omnivores that will consume algae, detritus and left over food from both the water column and the substrate. They will vigorously fan the water column during feeding to filter out any food that they can catch. If insufficient food is present, supplement with a quality flake food or pellet.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/2" to 3"
