They are very reasonable in price and very easy to keep. Females can generally be larger and become a deep crimson red during pregnancy.
Males have lighter texture and less red coloration to the females. Also be sure to check filter intakes are covered by a thick stocking or wool as mentioned earlier. If you find your shrimp are becoming pregnant but you never see any young, make sure the temperature is remaining around and be sure to check filter intakes are covered by a stocking or foam or something to prevent the babies being sucked inside. Alternatively thick layers of filter wool can be used to block and slow any large intake siphons.They will constantly fan the eggs to ensure they remain oxygenated and healthy. This can be obtained by adding a small bag of limestone chips to the filter. In tandem with raising the water temperature, raising the relative hardness of the water can spur breeding. It is important to fill your tank with patches of thick plant cover. Even though technically you could stock an unlimited number of shrimp, it is wise to have 2-5 per gallon of water. Having many shrimp can post the problem of overfeeding, it is very important to remove uneaten portions of food to keep ammonia under control.

today's miniature, resin and polymer clay tutorial is for a doll aquarium, so I hope you'll enjoy!
🙂 This is a super fun DIY ...
Up to 1000 in a standard sized 55 gallon aquarium would have little strain on the filter bacteria. When stocking these shrimp it is important to remember they have almost no bio-load. With other tank mates this is more difficult as even the smallest tetras will be able to consume shrimp offspring. They lack proper defenses to be housed with larger fish and are not much more than live fish food. They breed quickly, are fairly hardy and interact well with their own species. Certainly all copper and heavy metal additives should be avoided. Horror stories have arisen where hobbyists have forgetting to reset there light timers. If there is excess food in the tank from the last feeding, remove the food and add smaller amounts at feeding time. Be sure to boil these for a number of minutes otherwise they will float on the surface out of reach. Feeding is especially important in relation to breeding and preventing sterile births and healthy young. They will eat minimal algae in the aquarium and are omnivorous requiring a balanced diet and supplementary food daily. If a situation does arise check the water immediately, perform a water change and try to identify the problem. Avoid this situation by conducting constant water tests, using appropriate dechlorinates and ensuring the tank has completed cycling. Cherry shrimp like many fish will become stressed if the water quality is not optimal. After 20-30 minutes carefully use a soft mesh net to transfer the shrimp into the aquarium. Let this drip into the bowl for the next 20-30 minutes and monitor closely. Adjust the kink to allow a slow drip of 1 drop of water per second exiting the tube. Using air-line tubing and a rubber band, create a siphon from the aquarium and kink the tubing by placing the rubber band over a bent section of the tube. Ensure the aquarium has been chemically tested and it is within the parameters listed above. Water stability is both the long and short term goal. This is to ensure any toxic compounds such as chlorine are able to break down and be removed. It is a good idea to prepare the water a few days before and let the water 'age' with the de-chloriantor. Adding plants to the aquarium and doing constant water changes are both excellent ways at reducing nitrate levels. It is not a requirement but it is highly encouraged to have nitrate levels of 0ppm.
Shrimp are highly sensitive to nitrite, ensure your cycle is complete and nitrite is a firm zero. Possible elevated causes are overstocking or decaying plant or fish matter. This range will maximize health, color and egg hatching rates. However higher temperatures reduces dissolved oxygen and stocking will need to be lowered. They are easy to breed, maintain and they will naturally hide from predators. This makes them an excellent beginner shrimp. Cherry shrimp are extremely hardy and condition tolerant when compared to other varieties of shrimp. The red cherry shrimp really stands out in the aquarium especially against plants and darker substrates. The bright red color is a result of years of selective breeding. The plastic is thick, the edges are smooth and the motor runs very quietly. One thing to note is that the listed dimensions are wrong.

However, it's not very loud and you probably won't notice it in an average office environment or bedroom. The fish swim around using the motion of the motor-blown water. This little office doodad gets lots of attention and it's a great conversation starter. However my little plastic fish seem to enjoy their little world as they swim about. Would buy again if need a fun gift for someone in the office or a kid who what's a fake aquarium.
I think it would take a lot of shaking to cause a spill or leak. The hole for the water and fish is rather small and has a nice stopper. At first we were worried we got a dud fish; he was kinda just hanging out in an upper corner.

The fish use the whole tank and turn around and bump each other; it's dynamic and interesting. The motor does a great job creating a current.
We love that it plugs in (no batteries needed). She loves to watch it during the day and it doesn't seem to keep her up at all at night.
We used tap water and a couple drops of dish soap.
We got the mini and it's such a cute size--not too big, not too small. Thanks for making his days a little brighter.
We are sure they will all fall in love with this beautiful and well finished product. Otherwise the fish move really well and the motor is whisper quiet. Simply fill up the tank with tap water, add 2-4 drops of dish washing detergent and see your aquarium come to life. Model' finale and everything else holds". Create a beautiful deep sea environment for your home or office without the hassles of real aquariums. In this spin-off series it was revealed that sharks can still make a deal with a business that was rejected in the "tank".
