Product information
Taiwanese algae shrimp - Caridina sp
The newly imported Taiwanese Algae Shrimp is a nice addition to the hobby. This appears to be a fairly robust species that acclimates well and goes after algae cover and biofilms of all kinds quickly and readily. The Taiwanese Algae Shrimp cannot reproduce in freshwater and therefore there is no danger of overpopulating the aquarium. The rearing of the larvae should be relatively unproblematic in saltwater or brackish water, comparable to the rearing of Amano shrimp larvae or rhinoceros shrimp larvae. - Garnelio
Features
Water values: soft to hard
Coloring: transparent
Difficulty: for beginners
Propagation: not possible in fresh water
Description

The Taiwanese algae shr imp is a newly imported species from the genus Caridina. In Taiwan, these dwarf shrimp are found in rivers and streams with access to the sea. The coloration of this pretty Caridina reminds a little bit of the red rhino shrimp, it is transparent with red lines.

The animals grow to about 2.5 to 3 cm in length, the females grow to a slightly greater length than the males and have slightly downward extended abdominal segments, thus appearing thicker. In addition to the body structure, sexually mature females can be identified by the light green egg spot on the back of their neck or the eggs under their abdomen.

The small light green to yellowish eggs, which the females carry in large numbers for three to five weeks, indicate that the Taiwanese algae shrimp is of the primitive reproductive type, so it should not be able to reproduce in freshwater. The eggs hatch into larvae that require seawater or at least brackish water for development. The breeding of the Taiwanese algae shrimp should be the same as with the Amana shrimp. The larvae have to be sucked out after hatching and transferred to a saltwater aquarium, where they are fed with finest algae and microorganisms until they have completed the metamorphosis to shrimp.

In our aquarium the Taiwanese algae shrimps live in soft to medium hard water at room temperature, which they tolerate well. We have not done any tests with hard water yet. Purely by their origin they should tolerate water temperatures up to 26 °C well.

Typical for dwarf shrimp, these interestingly colored crawlers will eat anything that is offered. The Taiwanese algae shrimps like to graze on biofilms and algae growth, but they also eat brown algae Autumn leavesnatureholic shrimp food, protein feed, pumpkin chips and pumpkin blossoms, various natural foods and so on. It seems important to us to provide sufficient protein twice a week, this is best done with a protein feed specially designed for the needs of dwarf shrimp.

You cansocialize the peaceful Taiwanese algae shrimp with all peaceful fish, which should not be too big and also not too intrusive, and also with other dwarf shrimps - provided that the demands on the water values are more or less congruent. Due to the peculiarities of reproduction of the Taiwanese algae shrimp, interbreeding will not occur. They can also be kept very well together with non-predatory snails in the aquarium. We rather advise against socialization with dwarf crayfish or crabs .

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.

Question: "Handelt es sich bei Ihren Tieren um Nachzuchten oder Wildfänge?"

Es handelt sich um kontrollierte Wildfänge.

Question: "Kann diese Garnelenart mit Amanogarnelen und Mollys vergesellschaftet werden?"

from Kevin (Garnelio)
Reply
from Kevin (Garnelio)

Ja, das geht, es kann aber sein, dass die Mollys den Jungtieren nachstellen, daher solltest du den Garnelen viele Verstecke und stellenweise dichte Pflanzenbestände anbieten, damit sie sich zurück ziehen können. Liebe Grüße, Kevin

Sehr toll

Interessante und recht stressresistente Garnelen. Nach der Lieferung waren sie sofort aktiv und erkundeten ihre neue Umgebung. Ich halte sie in einem ca. 18 Liter fassenden Bachlauf und sie fühlen sich pudelwohl. Außerdem empfinde ich sie als nicht schreckhaft, teilweise eher neugierig. Hübsch anzusehen sind sie auch noch, von fast durchsichtig bis leicht rötlich Färbung.
Schade dass diese Tiere gerade nicht mehr erhältlich sind, denn ich würde gerne noch ein paar Stück einsetzen.
