These small grazing shrimp are amazing to watch, and easy to breed. They require soft, acidic water, preferably with a pH of 6-6.8, a kH of 1-4, and a gH of 4-6. They cannot be mixed with any nippy/aggressive/predatory fish or crustaceans (including loaches, puffers, crabs or crayfish etc.). They are primarily algae eaters, but will happily feed on sinking algae pellets as well as blanched veggies. If you are looking to mix in some fish to your shrimp tank, check out or Nano Freshwater sections here. For more information on these shrimp, check out our Shrimp Care Guide!
