Rather than being hairy the Algae Shrimp has a smooth or even fluffy appearance due to its coloration, which is mostly bright green with highlights made of tiny white spots on the edges of the carapace and abdominal segments. Sometimes the tiny white spots can be present all over the shrimp’s body. It’s one of our most popular shrimps for underwater macro photography.
