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, 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.
