About Us

Welcome to ShrimpTips.com, a blog dedicated to all things related to pet shrimp! My name is Jaap and I am the creator of this blog. As a child, I was fortunate enough to have a beautiful aquarium filled with a variety of fish and other aquatic creatures. Watching them live in this fascinating underwater world brought me great joy and sparked my love for the hobby.

However, when I went to college and moved into a student home, an aquarium was no longer practical and I lost touch with the hobby I so enjoyed. But now, many years later, I am rediscovering my love for aquariums and pet shrimp with my son. We have been learning a lot about the care and maintenance of shrimp and we want to share all of our knowledge and tips with you.

On this blog, you will find information on a wide range of topics related to pet shrimp, from setting up and maintaining an aquarium to feeding and breeding your shrimp. We will also cover the different types of shrimp available, their natural habitat and behavior, and how to create the perfect environment for them to thrive.

In addition to providing helpful information, we also want to create a community where fellow shrimp and fish enthusiasts can share their own experiences and ask questions. We believe that by sharing our knowledge and learning from others, we can all improve the lives of our pet shrimp.
