Bamboo Shrimp – Complete Guide [2023]

Bamboo shrimp are native to Southeast Asia and popular as aquarium pets due to their attractive appearance and ability to filter feed on small particles. They need a suitable tank with plenty of hiding places, clean and well-oxygenated water, and a suitable substrate such as sand or fine gravel. They should be fed once or twice a day with a variety of small, easy-to-digest foods and kept with compatible tank mates. Bamboo shrimp typically live for 2-3 years.
