March 2019 - Shrimpin’ ain’t easy!

Keeping Dwarf Shrimp can be easy with this reimagined planted tank theme specifically designed with shrimp in mind. This naturalistic aquascape incorporates a variety of lifelike rocks and plants from Underwater Treasures. The black gravel gives the feel of soil which is often used in freshwater shrimp aquarium setups and offers a well-rounded contrast to the vivid colors of the aquascape. The darker substrate will also brighten up the rich colors of the shrimp themselves.

Dwarf Shrimp of any species such as Cherry, Amano, Ghost or Crystal Red will thrive in this well covered aquascape which provides numerous nooks and crannies where they can safely molt and rear their offspring. The advantage of a non-planted aquarium for Dwarf Shrimp would be the absence of CO2 injection and fertilizers, which can be the biggest cause of disaster.

The open space and intricate layers between plants and stones offers the best habitat for comfortability for the shrimp and a pleasurable viewing area of a display tank for the hobbyist. Recommended products for shrimp include API pH Down,Hikari Shrimp Cuisine,Omega One Shrimp & Lobster Pellets,Fluval Telescopic Shrimp Net, and a good shrimp safe filter such as the Aqueon QuietFlow Internal Shrimp Filter.
