Tangerine Tigers

Have tried with some success to keep these shrimp. Very interested in hearing from those who do keep them or have kept these specific shrimp (not to hate on other shrimp its just that the thread goes haywire once everyone starts talking about the others). What type of setup did you use? Big or small tank? Aquasoil or no? RO v. tap? What parameters did you find best for success? Where did you source them? Thanks in advance!

I've been breeding them for 3 years and they're my top seller and easiest to breed

They do well in wide ranges from neo to caridina parameters and keep breeeing

People I sell to within a week they have nerroed shrimp. Love receiving those photos and videos

Thanks! I feel it is an underappreciated species. They look awesome. I have heard that they will survive in a wide variety of parameters but many say they prefer ph of <7 and kh of 0. What do you think?

I personally like to keep them on caridina parameters ph 6.7 tds 130 ish kh 0


The key is good stock, stable water parameter within range and dont over or under feed them. Theyrr so active when they eat. Much more active and aggressive than taiwan bee or neos. Let me find a video from my ig
