View Full Version : Natural environment for cherries?

I am a beginner with shrimps and have a question for all of you experts out there :) What would be the natural environment for cherries? Rocks, sand, lots of plants, no plants etc? :huh: Right now I have a tank for platy babies and shrimps but I feel that the shrimps are my real interest and so I would like to create a tank that would suit the shrimps as best as possible. Grateful for all advices!

I guess most freshwater shrimp come from rocky rivers, with no or very little plant growth.

Yea, I can't speak much for the natural habitat, but I can speak for what my shrimp like :)

They really like floating plants, rooted plants, hiding spots, and driftwood. I think they also really appreciate my sand substrate (pool filter sand).

Ok, thanks for your advices! I have done some changes in the aquarium now. I have a root, lots of plants for them so they can hide and it seems like they feel "at home"! Now I want to buy some crystal red shrimps also!
