$4.99

The Orange Shrimp, also known as or Orange Sunkist Shrimp is both hardy and vibrantly colored – an excellent choice for those just starting with freshwater shrimp. Like most freshwater shrimp, it is a peaceful, social species best kept in groups and will feed readily on most sinking foods. Although they are an adaptable species, they will do best in slightly soft water and with plenty of cover.
