Overview: Amano shrimp are a larger species of shrimp, introduced to the hobby by Mr. Takashi Amano. The live in freshwater most of their lives, actively looking for any food there is to eat. They are quite hard to bread though, I often saw my females carrying eggs but no luck. Nonetheless, give it a try, they will keep your aquarium clean and will therefore help the balance of the tank.
