Bumblebee Shrimp are a species of freshwater Caridina shrimp native to China. These dwarf shrimp display a range of coloration and patterning, but are generally striped with translucent white and reddish brown coloration.    


Bumblebee Shrimp are small freshwater shrimp that grow to a maximum size of 1.25 inches, and live up to 1.5 years. This peaceful species requires soft, acidic, and most importantly clean water, and is very sensitive so sudden changes in water parameters. It's best to supply them with dense plant covering, and plenty of driftwood and caves to hide in when feeling threatened. Bumblebee Shrimp stay small, and have few natural defenses, so it's advisable to keep them with small and peaceful nano fish.       


Bumblebee shrimp are omnivores, and will readily consume algae, food scraps from fish feeding, or specially formulated shrimp pellets
