i was just wondering if shrimp like their hiding spots to be well lit. i have them in a tank right now with some tetras and they seem a little scared of them so i bought them one of those plastic reptile habitats hoping they would hide inside but its kind of dark under there. do you guys think they'll eventually go in there? im hoping this would increase the chance of them surviving when and if they mate and have fry

If they are new in the tank, they will take awhile to get used to each other. If you put a lot of plants and objects with small crevices that the shrimp can fit into, they will feel safer. Dark places are not a bad thing, just give them time and they will get curious.

Yes, my tetra's ate all my babies and I have TONS of hiding places for them all. I ended up getting a shrimp only tank (I have a couple of Otos in there-they are safe) for all the shrimplets.

I've boughten plenty of cholla from people here on this forum. Just post a WTB and someone can hook you up. Or send a pm to highdesert.
