Comprehensive Water Parameters for Most Shrimps


I dont take credit for this awesome chart but to save alot of time researching each individual shrimp species.

This site has a great chart detailing each shrimp's water parameters. Super useful.

I readily believe you have. Shrimp in general are very resilient. They'll survive in lots of different conditions, however it doesn't necessarily mean that the environment is ideal, no?
