Tank Mate Compatibility : Shrimp can be eaten by larger fish, wouldn't recommend keeping them with fish like Angels, Gauaramis, Discus or anything larger than the shrimp. Shrimp can co exist with fish, especially guppies, tetras, rasboras, anything small which wouldn't be a threat to them. Providing your shrimp with hiding spots will help and the fish won't be able to pester them. Baby shrimp will most likely be eaten by any fish, so its advised to have a shrimp only tank if you wish to breed.

Feeding : You can feed your shrimp algae flakes, blanched vegetables, and all types of foods. Feeding once per day or even every other day should be enough, Shrimp will feed off natural fauna and algae. We sell a range of foods, which are great for shrimp!

You cannot get different colours by mixing neocaridina, if two colours breed together you will get wild coloured shrimp which are brown. They were originally discovered in the rivers of Taiwan & then selectively bred in farms to get the colours we see today.
