Super crystal red shrimp with one or two white stripes on the back. These are home bred shrimp, you will get unsexed juvenile shrimp at 1/4 to 1/2 inch long. They are fairly easy to keep and breed, require the same care as crystal red shrimp.
Aquarium must be fully cycled with a lot of biofilms and plants for them to graze on. Ammonia and nitrite should always be zero, nitrate under 25ppm. Weekly water change of 10-20% is suggested to keep the nitrate low. Feed only 2-3 times a week as overfeeding will cause shrimp death.
Breeding is the same as breeding crystal red shrimp. Female shrimp will carry the eggs for about 30 days until they are hatched to miniature size of their parents. It is important to have a well established aquarium in order for the shrimplets to survive as they can only consume biofilms until they grow older.
