**Shrimp are very sensitive to sudden changes in parameters. They must be well acclimatized**
Diet: Shrimp are constantly looking for food on the ground / plants or any other decoration in your aquarium. Requires very little feeding in a well-established aquarium containing algae, biofilm or micro fauna. In less mature aquariums, high quality dry foods with high plant content can be fed daily. Tank mates: Shrimp are better when kept in specific. Especially if you want to reproduce them and increase your colony. You can still put some snails (murderous snails can eat an adult shrimp).However small fish such as micro rasboras or other small species of fish can coexist but even with several hiding places certain shrimplets will serve as meals.
** Shrimp are very sensitive after moulting. You must provide them several hiding places. Especially if you don't keep them specific**
* colors and size may vary from photo depending on shrimp stress, your aquarium parameters, the food you use*
