This type of Caridina is best known for its vertical zebra stripes across its body. Similar to the cherry shrimp, they come in a wide variety of colors, mainly green yellow, red, and brown
These shrimp love to eat decaying vegetation, so a planted aquarium is the best possible home for them.
Additional feedings of blanched vegetables are something they will absolutely love as well. They are a newer addition to the shrimp keeping hobby, so not much is known about these adorable and colorful little fellows.
They can be kept in community aquariums with peaceful fish and neocaridina shrimp, but they tend to be shy and can be easily intimidated. It is possible for these shrimps to interbreed with other Caridina shrimp, which is why it is recommended to only keep them with neocaridina dwarf shrimp.
