for neocaridina shrimp , if their base color is the same like cherry , red rili ,fire red and bloody mary, all are red color base.
even you mix them all in one tank , you won't get wild color baby. But you will get random color of each.

always quarantine any new plants before introducing into shrimp tank

after few days if u see nothing wrong with the plant, try put 1 shrimp into the quarantine plant

if he survive, should be ok

Hello,

Im a beginner to this hobby. i was wondering what kind of substrate and substrate addictive should I put in my first tank for neocaridina shrimp. Also canister filter is better than sponge filter ? And chiller is a must buy equipment for shrimp or I can just buy those small cooler fans which is cheaper

dont think u need any chiller for neocaridina shrimps, and those small cooler fans are a waste of money, they do not really help. canister filter is much better than the sponge filter.

depend on your room temp..it varies from house to house and depending on tank location also..avoid room/space that received evening sun..

my tank rarely go up to 30'..average 27-29'c..but my friend after adding fan still average 29-31'c..

thanks for your comment,

I'm thinking to go for planted tank first before i put some live stocks,
Which kind of plants do you think that is suitable for beginners (easy to maintain)
With and Without Co2 is fine. I can take time to learn.

Hello sifus

My yamato shrimp appears to be berried. I have read that yamatos are very difficult to breed in captivity. Will she lose her eggs eventually?

Has anyone had any experience breeding yamatos before? Is the process very different from neocaridinas?

Any advice would be welcome as this is the first time I've seen something like this. Thanks!
