Product information
European freshwater shrimp juvenile (ca.1cm) - Atyaephyra desmaresti
The European freshwater shrimp is one of the few shrimp species native to Europe. The so-called black knights, dominant animals that occur in any shoal, are quite spectacular to look at, purely by their size and their very dark coloration they are absolutely impressive. In a cold water aquarium the European freshwater shrimp is easy to keep, and they have been bred. The larvae need very fine food to grow up. - Garnelio

Description

The European freshwater shrimp is very variable in terms of coloration, from transparent to brown, gray and black to dark blue everything is possible. Depending on temperature, environment and stocking density, the animals can even be slightly pink colored. It is often observed that a dominant animal, a so-called Black Knight, turns very dark, while the remaining animals remain rather light. With about 4 cm they reach a very respectable size for dwarf shrimp. The European freshwater shrimp proves to be extremely useful in the aquarium, as they primarily graze biofilms and algae growth, preventing them from proliferating. They are also very fond of eating detritus, plant debris and dead animals, thus keeping the aquarium clean. This type of feeding requires a lot of time, which means that European freshwater shrimp are active practically all day long and are therefore wonderful to watch.

The European Freshwater Shrimp is absolutely peaceful and can therefore be socialized with almost all species of fish and invertebrates, provided the housemates are also compatible and peaceful. It does not interbreed with other shrimp species, but needs cold water and cannot tolerate temperatures above 25°C for extended periods.

In community tanks with fish, European freshwater shrimp usually do not need to be fed specifically, as they will find enough food there in the form of algae, detrius or food scraps. However, they are always grateful for brown autumn foliage - it is grazed and later also eaten if it has been broken down by microorganisms. In an invertebrate-only aquarium, supplemental feeding is necessary. The European freshwater shrimp readily accepts special shrimp food adapted to its needs and is very grateful for a suitable protein food twice a week. 

The females of the European freshwater shrimp carry up to 1500 eggs under their abdomen in the months between April and August, from which very small larvae hatch after a few weeks. They can be raised in the parent aquarium, provided there are no fish in it that would eat the larvae. The larvae need very fine food, some mulm on the bottom also helps in rearing.

On delivery of the European freshwater shrimp you will receive a relatively young form (see picture) of the shrimp, but they reach a size of 4cm when fully grown. 

The younger the animal the longer you can look at these fascinating shrimp.

Question: "Hallo, ich würde gern eine 10er Gruppe in meinem 160 L. Biotop-Kaltwasseraquarium pflegen. Welche Fische wären für eine Vergesellschaftung einigermaßen geeignet ? Ich dachte an Moderlieschen !?"

Hallo Undine, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Von Fischen raten wir ab, die Tiere sind sehr klein und werden schnell gefressen. Eine 10er Gruppe reicht. Hast du erstmal eine stabile Kolonie kannst du kleinere Fische wie Bitterlinge einsetzen die die ausgewachsenen Garnelen nicht anpacken. Moderlieschen sind auch möglich. 

Question: "Hallo ich habe Edelkrebse in meinem Teich und möchte gerne noch 20 Süßwasser Garnelen dazu setzen,der Teich hat ca 90000 Liter. jetzt meine Frage sind eure Garnelen Krebspest frei ?"

Hallo Holger, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Die Garnelen sind frei von der Krebspest. 

Question: "funktionieren die Garnelen auch im Teich mit Goldfischen und Shubukins?"

Hallo Luca, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Wie alle Fische fressen auch Goldfische eine Garnele die in ihren Mund passt.
