Breeding Shrimp for Profit
Joe Theisen has always had a passion for aquariums, having had them growing up.
Encouraged by his local hobbyist friends, in 2016 Joe made the decision to get some Neocaridina and began researching the shrimp side of the hobby further. This began his addiction and since then, he has multiplied his collection of shrimp varieties,
to include Caridina.
In 2017, Joe reached his goal by winning a category in a shrimp contest. His new goal, is to help educate others about breeding shrimp properly, as well as sharing his passion for the hobby. Joe is on the Board for the Minnesota Aquatic Society and is an administrator for the Minnesota Planted Aquatics group. He owns and operates Joe’s Shrimp Shack in Plymouth, Minnesota. His store has over 100 tanks that are ready to provide a variety of freshwater shrimps, snails, moss, plants and other aquatic life.
