The Vampire Shrimp (Atya gabonensis) is certainly among the most fascinating and unique aquarium shrimp available.  Also known as the African Filter Shrimp, Viper Shrimp, Gabon Shrimp, and Cameroon Shrimp, this peaceful species is very rare, but ideal for the nano and planted aquarium.  It has highly variable blue, gray, brown, white, or pink coloration that can change several times per year.  While sometimes reclusive, this shrimp can often be seen waving its “fans” in the water current in an attempt to gather particulate food matter.  Unlike many shorter-lived shrimp, the Vampire Shrimp can live for as long as 5 years with proper care!
