Neo caridina shrimps are quite easy to keep. The only problem is the water stability and sometimes contaminations in water which they are more sensitive to than most fishes.So, are they actually that hard? What are your arguments for and/or against shrimp?
For instance, if you are using tape, there is a chance that your water is not compatible with them And there is also the problem of stability of your tape water. But if you can get RO water and remineralize it then there isn't much that can go wrong.
They aren't picky about their food either.
