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.

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

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!
