A uniquely patterned freshwater dwarf shrimp found throughout much of the Amazon Basin, the Amazon Tiger Shrimp inhabits shallow, warm water habitat typically associated with driftwood and aquatic vegetation and often in large groups. A hardy and peaceful invertebrate in the aquarium, their care requirements are similar to other dwarf shrimp although they will do best in softer, slightly acidic water.
