Orange sakura shrimp are omnivorous shrimp that naturally
feed on the biofilm that forms on underwater surfaces (as well as anything else
they can find). In the aquarium there is usually not enough biofilm and algae
available to sustain a colony, which means it's up to you to supplement their
diet.

 

Orange sakura shrimp are prolific breeders. As long as
their requirements are met they usually produce fry constantly, females
continually carrying small yellow-green eggs that hatch after 30 days. In fact,
they breed so quickly you might find yourself with an "overrun" tank
rather quickly! This is not much of a problem as their bioload is very low, but
you can still consider selling or giving away some shrimp if things become a
bit too crowded.

 

The fry don't go through a larval stage but hatch as tiny
copies of the adults, which means they don't need any special care and should
be able to find food on their own.
