Add fantastic visual interest to your freshwater aquarium with the fascinating and functional LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit. This convenient kit includes five varieties of easier-to-care-for invertebrates making it a great choice for novice or beginner aquarium hobbyists interested in caring for ornamental freshwater invertebrates. The LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit includes one each of the following ornamental invertebrates for a colorful and diverse aquarium display: (1) Orange Bee Shrimp ( Neocaridina sp.), (1) Yellow Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi), (1) Blue Velvet Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi), (1) Bloody Mary Shrimp (Neoncaridina sp.), and (1) Zebra Nerita Snail (Neritina sp.) or Freshwater Clam.
In addition to their beautiful ornamental quality, species included in the LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit are highly-prized for their efficient aquarium-cleaning services. These algae and/or detritus-eating species help keep your aquarium looking cleaner between scheduled routine aquarium maintenance by offering a natural solution to common aquarium maintenance concerns including nuisance algae. Their purposeful pursuit of algae and organic debris is sure to inject lively activity to your freshwater aquarium setup.
The ideal setup for the species included in the LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit is any established freshwater aquarium with proper filtration and high water quality. These ornamental invertebrates will thrive in aquariums landscaped with a variety of live or artificial plants, rocks, and driftwood to provide ample habitat and hiding spaces. For best care maintain high water quality by performing regular, routine water changes.
Like all invertebrates, species included in the LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit are sensitive to copper. Therefore copper-based medications should never be used in aquariums housing ornamental invertebrates. Do not house species included in the LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit in aquariums with loaches, puffers, and other larger carnivores that will feed on invertebrates.
The species included in the LiveAquaria® Beginner Shrimp Kit are omnivores and require a varied and well-balanced diet, which includes quality flake foods, sinking pellets, freeze-dried, frozen, and live foods, as well as algae wafers and other high-quality plant based foods.
