Product Description

NOTE THE TIGERS I AM CURRENTLY SELLING ARE SMALLER THAN TYPICAL AND ARE AROUND .5CM OR SO IN SIZE.  SMALLER SHRIMP SHIP AND ADAPT BETTER BUT BE CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE FISH IN YOUR TANKS OR ARE USING A CANISTER FILTER WITHOUT SOMETHING COVERING THE INTAKE. 

 

I ONLY SHIP SHRIMP TO THE US, NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AVAILABLE.  PLEASE REVIEW MY SHIPPING AND MY LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE HERE.

Tiger Shrimp are quickly becoming a very popular shrimp. Since Tiger Shrimp are found in the wild, and carried by many wholesalers they are becoming more common in pet stores that carry shrimp (I should note ALL the shrimp I sell are bred by me). Additionally as they do not interbreed with Neocaridina species so they make an excellent second shrimp for people who are already keeping a Neocaridina species and wish to add another species of shrimp to their tank.

Tiger Shrimp have a whitish or golden body color with black vertical stripes. Tigers are born without stripes and develop their stripes as they grow.

    If there is a company that knows how to ship shrimp. It is Will at TheShrimpTank. He does it right. His quality is excellent, his shrimp arrive healthy, and after I acclimated them, they are all doing very well and exploring their new home. Since I have bought all of my shrimp from The Shrimp Tank, I have not lost a single shrimp yet. Not one! If you want to get started shrimp keeping and start enjoying the shrimp life. This is the place to get your started.

    Awesome customer service, awesome shrimp, prompt and inexpensive delivery, all healthy with even one or two little strains (I got an orange-eye in my mix of 10!) Would absolutely recommend Will's site to others.

    Will was great with my questions and order. He was very generous, and I will most certainly work with him again.


  5. Much better than the Detroit Tigers!!

    Posted by SouthernCichlids on 8th Jun 2013

    Will has an awesome colony of tigers, I'm very happy with the ones he sent me. They're much larger than what most breeders will send, very active and healthy. If you're looking to get started with tiger shrimp or looking to mix up your bloodlines, these are the shrimp you want!
