Product information
Malaya dwarf shrimp, Caridina cf. babaulti
With its wonderfully pretty stripe pattern and beautiful dark base color, the Malaya Dwarf Shrimp is a very nice shrimp for community aquariums and for shrimp species tanks. Also in planted aquariums these fantastically colored and patterned shrimp do really well. Breeding is not as easy as with Neocaridina species, but well possible and especially in a species tank with some mulm actually no problem. The Malaya dwarf shrimp is one of our absolute favorites! - Garnelio

Description

The Malaya dwarf shrimp from Malaysia captivates mainly by its beautiful white patterning,  typically a white dorsal stripe with three transverse stripes of different length on the abdomen, which does not occur in all, but in most animals. Generally, the base color of the Malaya shrimp is rather dark with red, blue and black tones. Females tend to be average in size at about two and a half centimeters, while males are slightly paler in color and also slimmer. They remain slightly smaller than the females.

As an active but peaceful shrimp species, the Malaya Dwarf Shrimp can be kept excellently with small peaceful fish and other invertebrates, provided the water quality requirements of each species are roughly congruent. Nothing is known about a possible crossability of the Malaya Dwarf Shrimp with other shrimp.

The diet of the Caridina cf. babaulti "Malaya" dwarf shrimp is also very simple: The animals eat algae growth and biofilms forming on decoration and plants. Furthermore the animals eat plant remains and in the community tank also uneaten fish food. Of course, Malaya Dwarf Shrimp also like to take shrimp food specially adapted to their needs. We especially recommend the administration of a suitable protein food twice a week. Otherwise Food vegetable origin is wonderfully suitable, and the Malaya Dwarf Shrimp is always happy about brown autumn leaves as permanent food for grazing.

The breeding of the Malaya Dwarf Shrimp is also quite easy. The female carries between 50 and 80 very small eggs, from which larvae hatch, which can develop in fresh water. For numerous breeding we recommend a species tank with mulm and fine dust food.

Our food recommendation: NatureHolic's soft Mainfeed Softpads are designed for daily feeding. They contain all the nutrients shrimp need for shell development, egg formation and growth. During the production we pay attention to a gentle and environmentally friendly production, in which the vitamins and other valuable ingredients are preserved as far as possible.

Our plant recommendation: Use for the planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planaria and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.

Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.
