Fairy shrimp Branchinella Thailandensis Sanoamuang Starter Kit
Fairy shrimp Branchinella Thailandensis Sanoamuang originally came from Thailand, from where they derived their name. There they live in a warm climate, under excellent living conditions. This Fairy shrimp species is not only one of the best-known species in the world, but also one of the most beautiful. If there is enough light, the Thailandensis can develop a wonderful blaze of color. Their head may develop into a bright blue, their body is white and the tail is fire-red. Because of their red tails, Thailandensis are also often referred to as Red Tail Fairy shrimp, although this is not the scientific name of this Fairy shrimp species.
Fairy shrimp, unlike Triops, do not dig in the sand all day. Fairy shrimp actually do not dig in the sand at all. Instead, they swim through the aquarium – on their backs. This is probably also how they received their name “Fairy shrimp” , as they virtually float through the water, just like a fairy. However, in dangerous situations, they can also make incredibly fast zig-zag-like movements, to protect themselves from attacks.
24 ° Celsius is the right temperature when breeding this Fairy shrimp species. They do not need any variability in their diet, but are able to live off algae for their whole lives.
Fairy shrimp bring a relaxing atmosphere into your living room.
