Hey everyone, I am in Aurora at 225 and Illif.
They are pretty easy going. Not aggressive at all except at feeding time. And even then, they just form big shrimp balls.
I used to keep them with cherries and they did just fine. But the cherries will have a hard time if they get out numbered by the Tigers.
When keeping shrimp, I always recommend putting them into a mature tank. The Biofilm that they eat is very essential to their survival and only a mature tank can provide them with the amount they need.
I keep them in RO water that is reconstituted with Fluval Shrimp Minerals. I use a sponge filter with lots of moss. And Up Aqua shrimp gravel.
PH - 6.6
TDS - 150
Temp - 72*
I rarely, if ever do water changes on any of my shrimp tanks and they all breed year round.
