Gammarus are amphipod crustaceans. They are easy to culture and will often reproduce in an aquarium. Gammarus are opportunists and will feed on detritus and plant matter, ours love canned green beans. Medium to large fish enjoy hunting gammarus in the aquarium. For smaller fish and veggie eaters, as well as ornamental shrimp, gammarus are not a recommended tank mate; they will multiply quickly without predators and may compete for resources.

Includes 30+ gammarus of varying sizes packed in water with a plant or vegetable food source. Shipping includes a hot or cold pack if necessary.
