GarnelenhausWood shrimp, Radar shrimp

The Wood shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis) comes from warmer waters (little streams, small rivers) in the South and South-East Asian lowlands.

Fan shrimp are characterized by their long bristles on the first two walking leg pairs, which they use to filter plancton from the water. When feeding, the shrimp fan out these bristles, hold them in the current and fold them from time to time to strip the débris they caught from the water with their mandibles in order to eat. A good current and suitable food (powdered food, small frozen food like copepods etc.) are crucial for successfully and appropriately keeping fan shrimp.

The sheer size of Radar shrimp makes a larger tank of at least 54 litres a must. Apart from the strong current we have already mentioned, fan shrimp do not have any special requirements regarding the aquarium decoration. A few pieces of driftwood or rocks and maybe some caves ought to be provided, but you can basically set up their tank as you please.

Radar shrimp are quite variable when it comes to colour. Their basic colour is light to dark brown, and they have longitudinal darker stripes or interrupted patterns. Some specimens also have a light-coloured back line. Radar shrimp can be socialized with other peaceful shrimp or small, not overly agile fish, without any problems.

These shrimp cannot be bred in fresh water, as the larvae that hatch from their eggs, need salt water to develop, as do all the larvae of primitive reproductive shrimp types. Raising these larvae in salt water is very difficult and is not often attempted.

Our tip for keeping Radar shrimp!
Radar shrimp feel the happiest when the pH is between 7 and 7.5, a total hardness of 6 -10° dGH (German hardness) and a carbonate hardness of 4 - 7 ° dKH (German hardness). The temperature should be between 22 and 25 ° C ... powdered food (powdered Spirulina, copepods, ground-up food tabs and so on) contributes to heathly, vital, happy shrimp.
