Euryrhynchus amazoniensis

6. July 2007

April 2006: Now available again: Euryrhynchus amazoniensis a rare shrimp species from South America. The delightful pattern of points and stripes on their body justifies its English name Peru Zebra Shrimp. For a long-lasting maintenance the only 3 cm large getting species needs low pH values and soft water, since otherwise a certain susceptibility against bacterial diseases seems to be present. Due to its small size it should naturally not be socialized with predatory fish. E. amazoniensis is very suitable for a South American society tank with small characins and corys.(Photo F.
