High Grade: NO red marking on the body, red pigment on the head is solid deep metallic looking red.

Water parameters:

All these caridina species prefer aquarium with active soil. Active Soil is a substrate that buffer the Ph to be between 5 to 6.5, creating a thriving environment for freshwater shrimp species, especially for caridina shrimp. The recommended parameters are below

PH: 5.5 to 6.5
GH: 4-6
KH: 0 – 1
Nitrate: 0-20ppm for best results.
Temperature: can be anywhere between 20-23 degree but has to be stable.

Our recommendations:

The shrimp do well in a sizeable colony of between 10-20 shrimp. This is to ensure there is a good mixture of sexes within the colony. And the shrimp is more active once in numbers. We do not recommend keeping any fish with these shrimp species.

Usual maintenance: Feed the shrimp at least three times a week, with a wide range of foods. At Shrimp Corner, we feed our shrimp with Go Nature shrimp food, which is a natural shrimp food from natural ingredients. We also feed our shrimp with our A food, which is plant base protein containing seaweed, providing lean and optimal nutrients for shrimp. And once a week we feed our shrimp with Type B food, this is a protein base food to increase the growth rate of our shrimp, thus shrimp breed faster & females can carry more eggs. All of these foods were developed by us, over 10 years of breeding experience, we have bred thousands of shrimp.

On a serious note, do not feed shrimp with any foods contain copper.
