Nigerian Floating Shrimps – Desmocaris trispinosa

27. August 2013

We received this charming dwarf shrimp from Nigeria. Maximum length is around 4 cm. The species can be bred quite well under aquarium conditions, for the babies are very large already when born. The floating behaviour is fascinating and unique. However, the shrimps show it only in very quiet water.

For our customers: the animals have code 483613 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
