How long do amano shrimps live for

Hi all I put 5 amano shrimps in our main tank a good 4 years ago and had had them a while before then in a planted tank
They are still going strong
They are in a large tank so I dont see them very often but I counted 5 yesterday
would they be the same ones that I put in or would they have bred ?
I have seen them at least attempting to breed, with a pregnant female darting about the tank
I always thought that the baby shrimps needed brackish water to grow.

They breed lower down the river and the shrimps move back up the river when they are mature
thanks
Pete

Gday Pete,

yes you are correct, although females carry eggs, you do need brakish/salt water. It is achievable though. Look at this and it will give you ALL info you need good luck http://www.planetinverts.com/Amano%20Shrimp.html

cheers jk

Thanks doodles and BB, great link BB
Looks like mine are the origanal ones as they are in soft water so I doubt if they have bred
Great little shrimps tho will have to get some more
I was worried that the plecs would eat them as I have 2 Leporacanthicus plecs but they have been fine the plecs dont bother them

They're still going strong cant believe it but they must be the same ones as I said before my water is too soft for them to breed

Hello I've just found the forum again I thought that it had folded glad that it's still going strong
The amano shrimps are still alive and well
