The Assorted Shrimp does best in a planted aquarium and add a great bit of color, they are very easy to keep and are great for beginners. They are able to survive in a wide range of water parameters but as with any shrimp ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels must be kept to a minimum.
Assorted Shrimp are not fussy what they eat, anything your offer will be greatly received, algae wafers, blanched vegetables such as courgette and spinach, brussel sprouts, cucumber, fish flakes, shrimp pellets, red peppers and so on they are a great little shrimp to keep and very very easy.
These shrimp are very easy to sex, the females are bigger with a rounded undercarriage and has a very deep coloration, the males are smaller with a flat undercarriage and very little color, my males are almost see through.
There are no special requirements in breeding this shrimp, as long as water is kept clean and they are well fed they will breed, and breed a lot !! You will find a small colony within a couple of months which is why they are everywhere as they are so easy to breed and cheap to buy making them a great starter shrimp.
Was expecting to get at least a 4-3-3 split with my shrimp. Instead it was mostly red cherry shrimp, and a good number of yellow shrimp. They even threw in a female with eggs, which is perfect because I'm attempting to start a colony. My only complaint is they threw in three blue shrimp, two males and one female, and the female was the only shrimp DOA. Other than that, great order, nice variety in size, just wish there were more blues and less reds.
