Snow ball shrimp (Neocaridina zhangiajiensis)

  • 1999

*The shrimp that you receive may not look the same as the image shown due to stress during transportation as well as natural variations.


Snowball shrimp (Neocaridina  zhangiajiensis) is closely related to Neocaridina davidii and the care is the same.  The name snowball is actually name for its white eggs that look like snowballs.  The body of the shrimp is a translucent white.  It is an active shrimp that breeds easily with deep dark color.  Although their algae-eating appetite is not as strong as Amano shrimp, they breed easily and you are most likely going to end up with a lot of them, the sheer quantity of them grazing on algae could still keep your tank clean.  They are a great addition to your planted aquarium and it is so fun to watch them graze and clean all day long.  Be warned, they could keep you sitting in front of your aquarium for long hours!
