Care

Provide a variety of hiding places.  Shrimp will molt and prefer places to hide while their new body is tender.  Keep the molted shells in the tank as other shrimp will feed off it as a good source of calcium.  Unlike Caridina shrimp, Neocaridina are hardy and very easy to keep.  Always remove dead shrimp to minimize bacteria and infections.  Avoid heavy c02 injection.
