im currantly cycling my tank and was thinking of putting a few cherry shrimp in there,i am planning on keeping 10 cherry barbs when cycled and my tank is 62 litres.do shrimp need certain water conditions like fish do or are they easy to please? xxx
cherry shrimp should be fine in the same water as the cherry barbs, yep they are fairly easy to please. they will eat pretty much anything. they do like mosses and little plants to pick through tho. i have cherry shrimp in an open tank, they dont jump out. i think 10 barbs would be fine, not much difference between 10 and 8 with cherry barb sized fish.
