New To Shrimp
I've been looking into Shrimp for a while and looking for some feedback on my first tank. I've been keeping fish and plants for quite a while.
I have a few older tanks that I've cleaned up and want to get going, 20Long,20High and a 29Gal. My first shrimp will tank will go into one of these.
I'm using RODI.
Water parameters are:
Ammonia 0 ppm
Nitrites 0 ppm
I'd secondly like this to be a planted tank. If fish will work, fine but Shrimp is my primary focus.
From what I've gathered so far, my water has a lot to do with the type of shrimp I want to keep?
Given my water parameters listed above, I'd say it tilts more toward the hard side but I'm not really sure how that translates in the shrimp world and that's where I need some feedback from those that know and don't mind helping out.
My understanding is: with hard water, you'll want neocaridina, and all colors are about as equally easy to keep. If you have RO or soft water, you'll want a caridina species. Of the Caridina, Crystal Red or a Tangerine Tiger are good beginner choices. This is based on conversations, asking questions and reading.
Thanks for helping a shrimp newbie out.
