This combo pack is perfect for small aquariums and is a great way to get two colors of shrimp without paying more for the individual shrimp. Both colors are vibrant and beautiful and stand out fantastically against plants or any other backdrop.
Both of these shrimp varieties belong to the same species (Neocaridina davidi, formerly Neocaridina heteropoda) and can live within the same water parameters. Additionally, they will interbreed, and since they are shipped out as young adults or adults, they will already be able to breed in your tank. After some time breeding, these shrimp will form a colony that will work as a very effective cleaning crew for your tanks, cleaning up algae and waste!
RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:
- pH level range: 6.0 - 8.0
Temperature range: 65° - 82° F (18° - 28° C)
- Water type: Soft to hard
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Indian Tiger Shrimp, Amano Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish.
- Additional notes: These 2 types of dwarf shrimp are among the easiest types to care for. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, dark red ludwigia, green cabomba, etc.). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
