Above all, keep the aquarium simple.
Firstly, filtration need only consist of a sponge filter or similar so as not to suck the shrimp through. Maintaining the nitrogen cycle is most important for neocaridina shrimp.
Secondly, female shrimp can sometimes be stressed by the males during moulting. For this reason, there should be many hiding spots available. Additionally, it will give places for shrimplets to shelter.
Lastly, a heater to keep the temperature stable.
Feeding Neocaridina Shrimp
When feeding dwarf aquarium shrimp less is often more. Shrimp will feed off decaying material and biofilm available in the aquarium. In fact, many aquarium keepers do not even directly feed their shrimp. Although, with larger shrimp populations supplemental feeding becomes necessary.
Accordingly, in our home and shop aquariums we feed a varied diet of commercially prepared Shrimp Food for the most part.
