[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 15, Issue 32


Go to groups.yahoo.com and look for the group called FreshwaterShrimp.  I think it is exactly the kind of place you are looking for to answer your bamboo shrimp questions.

Subject: [APD] Bamboo shrimp requirements

Hello, been trying to find info on bamboo shrimps but it's hard to find so 
thought I'd ask here. I'm always looking for the 'different' animal look 
in my tank ;)
First I have a 90 gal with a med fish load (lots tetras and small fish), 
lots of plants, CO2 inj.

- Eating requirements. Do they need any supplementary food or could they 
fend for themselves? How many would the tank support?

- Colours? I saw them at the store a while ago (unlabeled as new delivery) 
but didn't get any as I wanted to research them first, these were a nice 
deep brown colour. But now the ones I see at the store are called African 
Wood Shrimp and they are a dull yellow colour, not nearly as nice. Was it 
the Singapore one I saw before.

- Are they jumpers? Currently running without a glass top on my tank for 
more light.

- What's the usual cost. Store has them at $19cdn which is the most I've 
ever seen for any type of shrimp. Don't know if that's standard or a 
premium for a new 'exotic'

- Any other special requirements, hiding places etc. I have good water flow 
which I guess they would need.

Many thanks
