Good freshwater cleaners

I'd never seen these little shrimp here in South Africa for freshwater aquariums (probably because they were illegal to keep) but nevertheless, they make excellent little cleaners in a tank that doesn't have too strong a flow of water (think low power setting on an AquaClear filter or undergravel filter).

They should be kept with fish that won't be interested in eating them - so good luck trying to find a compatible species!

I successfully kept them with a green spotted puffer and a siamese fighter (if memory serves).

The female shrimp are easy to identify as they carry the eggs around their abdomen.
