The Bamboo Shrimp or Wood Shrimp comes from South East Asia, It is a very peaceful shrimp and a filter feeder. It uses claws that resemble fans to catch particles in the water of which it feeds off. This shrimp does require hiding places and is compatible with community small fish / shrimp. We also recommend that the tank is well covered as these little guys like to go for a wander! .
