Orange Shrimp (Caridina cf. propinqua)


The Orange Shrimp, also known as Orange Borneo or Orange Sunkist Shrimp is both hardy and vibrantly colored – an excellent choice for those just starting with freshwater shrimp. Originating from Borneo, little is known of its wild habitat but it appears that like Amano Shrimp their larvae require marine conditions to develop.
