View Full Version : what shrimp to house with RCS?

17th Sep 2012, 06:27 AM
I'm new to shrimp breeding and I'm wondering what other kinds of shrimp i can house with RCS without resulting stress or aggression, also is there anything i can breed with RCS and not produce the wild type? , it's pretty confusing stuff for me. I also house a male Betta with my RCS and he is fine with them but i am unsure if any other colored shrimp would bother him.
Any advice would be great! :)

I Have red cherry shrimp, green shrimp and rilli shrimp together with my black crystal shrimp. It is a mixed tank, but it works fine for me.

It is adviced to keep one type of shrimps in a tank inorder to provide them with the best possible water parameters suited for their type. Also diff.types of shrimps can be aggressive towards each other.
If u house shrimps from the same family with diff.colors u'll get hybrids with mixed colors which are not always pretty.
Anyways its yr tank so you decide who will inhabit yr tank.
