Hi guys, I'm thinking about getting some Yamato shrimps to go in the tank with my whitecloud minnows but was just wondering if there is anything in particular I need to know about caring for them, what sort of foods do they like? do they need specific kinds of hiding places? And also how much I should be looking at paying for them. Any advice appreciated! Thanks
Cheers FF, Do you know what kind of veg they like, and do I need to do anything to it or just chuck it in the tank? I was also wondering how many I should get. Do they prefer to be in groups or pairs or singles?
TBH they eat almost anything, primarily algae, then leftover fishfoods and flake, algae wafers etc, they nibble on most things, though they tend not to eat much in the way of plants themselves, as you might imagine for a "plant safe" species. You can actually purpose designed pellets for shrimp and cras if your worried theyre not getting enough minerals in the diet for healthy exoskeletal growth and good sloughing of old skins.
