I'm curious to add another species to my shrimp tank that's compatible with my RCS. Thoughts on Sulawesi Shrimp?

I have a planted flourite substrate Picotope tank. My current tank parameters seem to be good for Sulawesi in the future.

They look so beautiful and might be a nice visual addition. Anyone with experience and thoughts?

Thanks!

Tiger can be kept in the same parameter of neos cherry shrimps. Most tiger shrimps sp. (Tangerine tiger, regular tiger...) are hardy and can adjust to a wide range of water parameter.
If you like to keep and breed Sulawesi shrimps, better setup a new tank, use RO/distilled water with Sulawesi minerals.

@Ahboram Still depends on your water parameters (majority of the time they are compatible, unless your pH is high in the 8's). Take a look at the links above. If they are within the parameter range of your tank, they can be housed together.
Tigers preference range is closer to Neos than most soft water Caridinas which is why tigers can often be housed together with Neos.

Breeding rates will vary slightly depending how favoring the water parameters are to which species.

Ok thanks all. I use salty shrimp gh/kh+ for my R/O water is that different from the sulawesi minerals?
