Caridina longirostris

Size - approx 1-1.5cm

The North Qld Algae Shrimp is a very popular and active algae-eating species. They are ravenous eaters, consuming not only most algae, but eat dead plant castoff material (detritus) and clean the tank of leftover food.

They are quite small, averaging between 1-2cm centimeters, making them ideal for a smaller tank. They only resist eating blue-green and green spot algae ( but have known to eat Black Beard Algae when no other food source is available) 

It's one of the best all rounder clean up crew

Good service

Happy with service quick delivery. Shrimps were healthy and as advertised, would like a option of having the bigger ones though which I also have from another local supplier about 3cm / 4cm in size.

Healthy critters; received more than ordered

Ordered three and they gave me four - nice insurance (and considering one sadly jumped out through the gap in the tank cover first night) that paid off :)
