I really want to buy some shrimp, but every where I look online is super expensive. I don't have any fish stores anywhere close to me, so I have to order online. Where is a place I could get cheap ones? I just want 1 blue male 1 blue female and then I'll breed them.

If you use RO water and use almond leaves or cholla to buffer water should have no ph issue. Use a sponge bubble filter. If you want more info sub to my channel and ask away!

Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 10 years ago
Hi. Some compatible fish would be corydoras, boraras brigittae, siamese algae eater, otocinclus. Some small tetras don't harm them too. Most of the time, we fed the shrimps with dried feed like algae wafer or even boiled spinache. Shrimps are scanvangers, so basically they eat anything from algae to dead animals to dead plants (provided they are tasty).
Xombie007
Xombie007 - 10 years ago
What kind of fish can be placed with the shrimp so that the fish don't harass or try to eat the shrimp? Also, what type of food do you typically feed the shrimp, or do they feed on plants and or dead fish/shrimp, or from parts that broke off or were shed?

You should go for easier shrimps and plants for a start. For shrimps, try using Cherry, Sakura or Yamato shrimps, they are pretty easy. With regards to aquatic plants, try Java Ferns, Staurogyne, Hairgrass or Anubias Nana.

A complete setup (2ft) usually cost around S$1,000 - S$1,500. Depending on the brands you use. Complete setup means you need a cabinet, tank, external canister filter, aquarium lamp and heater/fan, aquascaping materials (substrate, plants, wood, rocks etc) and not forgetting shrimps. :)

This video was taken few weeks after setup and therefore the hairgrass seems sparse. Yes, after a couple of months, the ground was completely covered. Please watch our video "Freshwater Planted Aquarium - Mystic" to see the results of the creeping hairgrass.

Hi! I watched your video. Seems like your tank is too "dirty", I see lots of rotting plants. When I said dirty, I mean the Ammonia(NH3) & the Nitrate(NO3) content in your water. Shrimps cannot survive in water that is high in NH3 and/or NO3. Please test your water using the test kits to make sure your water is free of NH3 and the NO3 is not exceeding 20ppm. Another you have to take note is the water temperature. Try maintaining the temperature between 20ºC to 27ºC. Shrimps prefer cooler water.

Actually the hairgrass are not fully grown yet. This is the initial stage of setup. Once it start creeping, it will cover the entire soil area. Please see our videos on aquascape to get the whole idea. Thanks! :)

I would recommend external canister filter as they can have more filter media for nitrobacteria to grow in. But they may suck in baby shrimps, so it is better to wrap the inlet with a sock or something.

Most small algae eaters such as otocinclus, siamese algae eaters do not harm shrimps. Small corydoras such as pygmy corydoras are compatible with shrimps too. We have also tried keeping shrimps with small fish like, boraras brigttae and cloud mountain minnows. They do fine. :)

Small shrimps like Sakura, Cherry, Tiger can breed easily. If you want shrimp that doesn't breed (in freshwater) and yet eat algae, you can try Yamato/Amano shrimp. It is 1 of the best algae eating shrimp. But it is bigger than sakura. They can grow up to 7cm.

Do shrimp breed easily? I don't want an infestation of shrimp. I have a small tank (12gal) and wanted some shrimp to eat the algae. What species would be best for that? And that doesn't breed easily
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 12 years ago
Choose plants carefully. Preferably those that are hardy if you are not using high light and CO2. Not all plants can be buried into the soil, some need to be tied to wood/rocks, e.g. java ferns or anubias species. Once you got your potted plants, remove them from pots and clean them properly. Trim away yellow leaves and rotting roots. Trim roots to about about 2 - 4cm and plant them carefully into soil using a sharp pincer.

Aquatic Story Pte Ltd
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 12 years ago
Shrimp climbing/jumping out of tank is common if water is filled to the brim of the tank. Try not to fill up the tank with too much water. Another possibility of shrimp jumping out of tank is because of the water quality. E.g. water temperature, NH3, NO3, chlorine etc. The tank need to be well cycled (i.e. with proper filter system) before livestocks can be introduced. There are very small hangon filter for a small 2gallon tank. It will be useful. But please over the inlet, it may suck in shrimp

Hi. As we are using aquarium soil, the PH is generally maintained at between 5 to 6.5 depending on the brand you use. With regards to KH/GH, we do not do much about it. For shrimp tank, it is best not to try altering the water parameter too much by adding chemicals etc.

Hi. Angelfish can grow big and can easily swallow small shrimps in just 1 gulp. If your shrimps are bigger, e.g. yamato shrimp, you must make sure there are plenty of hiding place for them. It is still better to keep shrimps in a species tank without fish.

@lokarn Hi. People like to call small aquariums 'Nano Aquariums'. If it comes with all necessary equipment such as lamp and filter. Then it is ok to buy them. Some nano tank comes with hood (with lamp) and internal filter system, those you need to be extra careful coz water will be warmer as heat we trapped. High temperature is not good for shrimps. Finally, smaller aquariums may be more difficult to maintain (personal experience).
lokarn
lokarn - 12 years ago
I have a question for you, I've seen these small aquarium sets (called Nano something I guess)that supposedly have everything that you need to start up. Is this a good buy or not worth it?
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 12 years ago
@EricBarbman Yes, there will be risk but it is minimum as they are of a 2 different species. I.e. Cherry is Neocaridina Heteropoda var. 'Red' while CRS is Caridina cf. cantonensis 'crystal red'. Chances of 2 different species breeding is very small. On the other hand, if you put in other Neocaridina Heteropoda, e.g. Yellow shrimp or Chocolate shrimp, they will definitely cross breed.

@WillyChoi87 Hi. I can't pin-point to you the exact problems because there are afew possibilties. 1st, cycling period of 1 day is too short eventhough bacteria is added. I suggest the next time u start an aquarium, cycle it for at least 5 days. 2nd, wood add may not be suitable or may hv harmful content. Or wood is too 'new', releases too much tannin into water. 3rd, When change water, use aged or de-chlorine water. Temperature seems fine. Please take note of NO2, NO3 and PH.

Hi, I have a 6 gallon tank and I got 7 red cherry shrimps. I have set up the aquarium, add some bacteria, plants a piece of wood to start it off and let it all filter for a day. The next day, the shrimp doesn't seem to be looking for food or eating from the plants and them all the shrimp went into hiding except one and I saw him to seems like its grasping for air then collapsed. When I change the aquarium and turn the heat up to 80, looks fine until they went into hiding... should i be worried?

Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 12 years ago
@WillyChoi87 Hi. From our experience, you can easily keep up to 50 shrimps without any problem as long as there is no over-feeding and water quality is good. As for plants, try to avoid using Anubias species such as Nana or Barteri etc. Because these plants will release toxin substances when being trimmed and it may kill the shrimps. For beginners, I recommend going for moss balls, moss and java ferns as maintenance is minimum. Finally, it is ok to do without carbon in filter.
Willy Choi
Willy Choi - 12 years ago
How many shrimp can I keep in a 2 gallon tank? I have some moss balls, a piece of aquarium wood from the pet store and a few low maintenance plants and other type of moss, is there any plant I should avoid and is maintenance required? i'm pretty new at it and I have a small filter without carbon.
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd
Aquatic Story Pte Ltd - 12 years ago
@thebluespiritpsn Hi. As we are using soil, there is no way we could clean it. But as long as the tank is well planted and have a good filtering system, the aquatic plants and animals in the aquarium will do just fine. If you are using non-soil as substrate and wish to clean it, it pretty difficult with all the shrimps creeping around especially babies. So cleaning substrate may not be possible with them around.

@Humilus Thanks! These are what they call the Sakura shrimps, the very red version of Cherry shrimps. I got them locally in Singapore. They are not very expensive, probably around S$2. Sakura/Cherry are quite easy to care for as long as temperature is between 15ºC - 28ºC. Keep tank well planted with 0ppm of NO2/NO3. They will definitely thrive. :)

The shrimps are obviously well cared for! :) The cherries in particular have a lovely wine-red hue... where did you purchase them from (or their parent stock if you've bred them yourself)? I've always marveled at the fancy invertebrates from a distance since they were out of my budget range, but I will be able to create an appropriate setup for a few pretty soon. Do you have any advice for a beginner?

Beautiful shrimp! I bought 30 cherry red a few months ago - Now have 3 thriving colonies. I didn't notice any young shrimp although I saw plenty of eggs. Did you just recently stock that tank with adults that haven't had time to hatch eggs? Or do the SAE eat the babies? Again really nice looking shrimp.

@Aquaticstory they only eat mostly algae when young...becoming true catfish as they grow. Unlike Oto's, these will suck up baby shrimplets. Stick with otocinclus IMO. Nice looking cherries...very dark.

@huntertank90 I fed them with a wide variety of shrimp feed. Some of the brands I'm using are namely Mosura, Ebita-breed, Ebi-ten, BoneoWild and Choice. I feed them once every 2 to 4 days since they are in a heavily planted tank. Recommended feeding is alternate days. i.e. 1 day feeding and next day without.

The fish is Siamese Algae Eater (SAE). They are very good algae eating fish and are peaceful towards other fish/shrimp. However they may display aggression/dominance among each other.

@JayAOnline Hi! These are actually new 'cherry shrimp', called Rili. Both males and females Rili are about the same. Just that females are usually bigger and brighter. They are relatively new in the market, so the price tag is about 10 times more than normal cherry shrimps now.

Hi, Nice Cherry Shrimp. I'm looking to buy some for my 25 gallon tank. Are the Cherry Shrimps with the pale stripe down their back male?

@Aquaticstory Thanks alot for the reply pal. Il look for smaller ones then :)

@duane99 Cory of that size may be too big for the shrimps. I'm not sure if they will 'accidentally' eat the newborn shrimplets or not. Although cory are peaceful in nature, but its presence may stress up the shrimps. How about going for smaller corydoras such as pygmy cory? I kept them with my shrimps and are all doing fine.

Im thinking of getting some shrimp (cherry) and was just wondering if a 6-7cm cory catfish would be too big to mix with these shrimp and would eat them? If anyone can help that would be great!

@giorgiog01 This is aquarium soil. I'm using ANS for this aquarium. There are many brands out in the market. You can try some of these brands which are quite popular: 1) ADA 2) GEX 3) ANS 4) Magic Soil

@slick0567 Most freshwater shrimp can be housed together. However, there will be a risk that they may cross-breed. And also please take note of Sulaweisi shrimps. They required water with higher PH (about 7.5 - 8.5) compared to the rest such as Cherry, CRS, Snowball etc which requires lower PH (about 6 - 7).

With regards to the temperature, 80ºF is fine. Try not to let the temperature go above 82ºF. Most species of shrimps can't survive in warmer water. I have an aquarium at around 85ºF, keeping cherry shrimps. They can survive but are unable to breed well.

@jpologo Hi, thanks for your compliments. ;)) Most Neocaridina and Caridina species are relatively small in sizes. Probably up to 2.5cm when fully growth. You may still keep them with small fish such as small tetras or endler guppies. However, such fish will still eat shrimplets whenever them find them. I would recommend Boraras Brigittae though because they are 1 of them smallest fish with tiny mouth. They will have problems to even swallow little shrimplets.

@TheBlasthockey Hi, these shrimps are easy to care for and given a good condition, they can breed like crazy. It is better to start with cherry or sakura shrimps as they are beautiful and easy to start with. Just take note of the temperature (15ºC -28ºC) and NO2/NO3 level. I'm from Singapore, shrimps and moss are very common here. We can easily get them from any fish shops. I'm not very sure about your location though. You may wish to check online for sellers at your location. :)

@1peiceaznboi Shrimps are scavengers, they will eat almost anything, from algae (selective) to dead plants/animals to uneaten fish feed. Shrimps are great addition to aquarium as long as water temperature is right (below 28ºC) and fish are not too big.

Are these shrimps kinda good at cleaning your fish tank, and I think adding shrimps to my fish tank might be awesome.

@Mtbskillz Yes, you should try. They are quite easy to keep, recommended for beginners. Then slowly upgrade to keep nicer shrimps such as Crystal Red Shrimp. :)

@DrDollarGeneral Thanks! I add Mosura products such as Mineral Plus and ShiZhen. I'm also feeding them with various brands of shrimp feed, namely Mosura, CHOICE, Ebita Breed, Ebi-Ten and BORNEOWILD. Once again, thanks for viewing the video! :)

These shrimp have an amazing deep red. Mine are just as red, but slightly less dark. Do you add anything to help them get this color? Very nice shrimp, keep up the awesome work!
