Bamboo Shrimp or Atyopsis
*Please note: For the safety of the livestock, we only ship livestock Monday – Wednesday. Please plan accordingly. We mainly sell juvenile livestock, but adults will be sent if available. We also do not sex livestock for any client – we will send a mix if available (this is to make it fair for everybody). This is company policy. PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY RECEIVING ONLY MALES OR ONLY FEMALES OR JUVENILE Shrimp.
Our parameters of the Bamboo Shrimp (Atyopsis):
|PH:||7.0 – 7.5|
|KH:||0 – 1|
|GH:||4 – 6|
|TDS:||120 – 180|
||23 – 26 degrees Celsius|
For instance, if the shrimp has been in transit for:
- < 48 hours we recommend slowly acclimating shrimp with the “drip method”.
- 3+ days, we recommend floating the bag for 15 minutes. Subsequently, “pour” the shrimp into a fish net over a bucket. Therefore, you can catch all the shrimp in the net and let the water collect in the bucket. Further, you can add the shrimp to your tank.
In conclusion, check out our video on how to breed shrimp:
