Sulawesi White Sock Shrimp (Caridina sp. 'White Sock')

Description:

The Sulawesi White Sock Shrimp is a distinctive and elegant freshwater shrimp native to the mineral-rich lakes of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Known for its bright white markings that strikingly contrast against a darker body, this shrimp resembles the appearance of a 'white sock'. It is both a beautiful and functional addition to any aquarium, helping to control algae and detritus buildup while providing a splash of color.

Features:

  • Vivid white bands that contrast sharply against a translucent or darker colored body, giving it the 'white sock' appearance
  • Small size, typically reaching only about 1 to 1.5 inches in length
  • Peaceful and non-aggressive, perfect for community tanks with similarly sized and non-predatory fish
  • Effective cleaner, grazing on algae and biofilm on tank surfaces

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: Minimum 10 gallons, with a well-established biofilm and plenty of hiding spots
  • Water Parameters: Requires slightly alkaline conditions, pH 7.0-7.8, with temperatures between 22-28°C 
  • Diet: Omnivorous; feeds primarily on algae and biofilm, but should be supplemented with high-quality shrimp pellets and occasional vegetable matter
  • Compatibility: Best kept with other Sulawesi shrimp species or small, peaceful fish that thrive in similar water conditions
