    Very nice Chungck! I watched the video showing your healthy shrimp feeding. I was jealous! Could you share you tank parameters with us?

    Hi Ouuuigh,

    Beware that you don't overfeed them.....you've got 8 shrimps...1 or 2 pellet will do...I feed them 3 times a week...

    Before you get Sulawesi shrimps in your tank....you have to got a good environment....a lot of lava stones will do....( in my tank i have several lava stones (8), because of the little holes, you will create what i call micro organism) and a good parameter....temp. 25-26 degrees.

    Let the tank run 8 to 10 weeks....before enter shrimps

    chungck - what sort of substrate are you using? I'm curious if that is Purigen on the ground, used to soak up nitrogenous waste.

    Very nice shrimp!

    ouuuigh: most of sulawesi species are much smaller than other Caridina. C. dennerli (cardinal) is only 1-1,5 cm long when adult.
    I donīt know if guppy in tank are good idea. Think about remove them.

    @ dxiong5

    the substrate that I used a standard one it's only round shaped

    and to soak up my nitrogenous waste, I'm using floating plants.

    These plants have two benefits..
    1..it absorb the nitrogenous waste and
    2. it demps the light of the tank.....they don't like bright light

    Azolla caroliniana


    Limnobium laevigatum


    Pistia stratiotes


    Salvina natans

    I bought 2 Caridina dennerli 3 days ago and placed them into a mature
    30L tank, with 8 Sulawesi snails, they are doing well, feeding and generally
    happy and healthy looking, so I went back yesterday and bought the last 2 giving me a total of 4.

    Amazing little shrimp, startling colours and I just love the white feeding legs, they are very interesting to watch.

    I'm amazed that such colourful shrimp are not eaten in their natural habitat, as they certainly stand out.

    Hoping they do well, and breed into a larger colony.

    I'm keeping them in conditions of

    ph 7
    kh 0
    gh 10
    no2 0
    no3 0

    Temp 80F/27C

    It is early days yet, as to whether they do well in my care, but so far so good.

    Th snails are certainly benefiting from the rise in temperature, so anyone keeping these snails and noticing very little activity from them, might do well to up their temperature a bit.
