 Hey  Sridhar!!!!
   Looks  like  a  lot  of  Amano  shrimps.  Also  red  nose  shrimps....  Buddy  where  could  you  get  the  Amano's  from.  Also  a  couple  looks  like  kumta  shrimps.  Can  you  gimme  more  details  of  the  tank  and  feed.  Also  any  care  about  PH  /  GH????
 
 I  have  mine  in  a  15G  tank  and  have  tried  to  maintain  the  brakish  water  requirements  its  around  6  weeks  that  my  4  red  nose  were  in  the  tank  and  all  seems  to  be  happy.  Added  10  Crystal  reds  over  the  week  end  and  a  couple  of  micro  rasbaros's.  All  were  happy  and  took  the  feed.  Have  seen  a  great  colouration  on  them

 They  are  not  amano  shrimp.  They  are  called  as  Pearl  shrimp  or  Sand  shrimp.  The  other  one  is  the  Red  Nose  shrimp.  I  feed  the  pearl  shrimp’s  blood  worms  only.  They  cannot  be  mixed  with  fishes  as  the  pearl  shrimp  belong  to  Macrobrachium  species.  Better  to  keep  them  in  a  species  only  tank.  The  tank  consists  of  pearl  and  red  nose  shrimp  only.  No  idea  about  the  water  parameters  as  i  have  not  checked  them  till  now.  The  red  nose  shrimp  are  the  best  algae  eaters  and  they  consume  algae  much  better  than  any  other  shrimps  in  the  hobby.

 Sridhar,
   Thanks  for  correcting  me.  Any  idea  from  where  is  this  originated  ?????

 Might  be  a  bad  idea.  Need  to  feed  them  spinich  pea  and  varities  of  pellets.  Feeding  live  always  can  be  a  problem  to  shrimps.

 Cool...  PLease  update  me  if  you  have   chance  to  next  time.

 Might  not  be  correct  though  i  have  not  experienced....  Many  including  the  master  of  shrimps  (Mustafa  Ucozler)  mentions  that  Amano's  are  the  best  to  clean  alge.

 Hi  Sridhar.....
    Believe  me  or  not,  I  did  feed  them  a  pea  piece  and  they  are  gone  in  a  day  in  my  tank.
 
 Note  that  many  dwarf  shrimps  are  Omnivore  and  required  a  balenced  diet....   These  guys  can  munch  on  cambomba  and  myriophyllum  and  other  delicate  plants   hence  might  not  be  compatible  with  planted  tanks  which  have  these.
 
 I  do  not  wanna  argue  with  you  on  this.  May  be  others  would  correct  me  if  i  am  wrong.  But  this  to  my  "limited"  knowledge   is  correct.

 Raghu,
 
    Pearl  Shrimp  belong  to  Macrobrachium  species  and  they  donot  come  under  the  dwarf  shrimps.  Also  none  of  the  dwarf  shrimps  are  know  to  eat  plants.  Majority  of  the  guys  who  keep  the  dwarf  shrimps  keep  them  in  planted  tanks.
 
 Regards,

 Buddy,
   I  never  told  that  Pearl  Shrimp  is  a  dwarf  shrimp.  I  was  refering  to  red  nose  and  dwarf  shrimps  in  general  and  shrimps  in  common.
 
 
   I  suppose  this  web  site  could  let  you  know  that  even  perl  shrimps  are  also  omnivore.
 
 http://www.petshrimp.com/pearlshrimp.html
 
 
 Sir  ji.....
   I  do  a  lot  of  web  search  and  gather  as  much  of  info  as  i  can  before  i  set  up  some  thing  cause  i  love  these  guys  and  do  not  wanna  loose  it  at  the  cost  of  my  limited  knowledge.....  
 
 I  can  tell  you  that  many  shrimps  can  also  munch  on  Moss.
 
 These  are  couple  of  words  of  wisdom   from  a  reputed  shrimp  grower  around  the  globe.
 
    "They  should  be  fed  a  varied  diet  rich  in  vegetable  matter.  It  is  also  good  to  have  moss  or  riccia  in  the  tank  so  that  they  have  a  ready  snack  when  they  are  hungry  so  they  never  starve.  They  also  eat  algae  but  there  should  not  be  algae  in  your  tank  because  if  so  your  nitrates  is  too  high.  Algae  tablets/pellets  for  botom  feeders  are  available  at  most  aquariums.  You  can  also  feed  them  food  meant  for  plecos  (sucker/janitor  fish),  corydoras  or  crabs."
