Hi,

unfortunately I don't think this shrimp is available in the USA or in Europe. I have always heard that the larvae need brackish water.

I've heard that. It is kinda hard to find information on their habitat.
If someone over here can point me to the right direction...it would be great.
At least some info on their habitat and if their larvae stage is born on freshwater like the amano and the carried by the current to saltwater.


Thanks

ok heres the info on ninja shrimps

they breed in freshwater but in nature they get washed down into brackish water environment.

so if you can get amanos to breed then its exactly the same for ninjas

milalic,

Here is the method, Hockey Shrimp used to bring up his red nose shrimps which have same larvae stage as Ninja Shrimps.
