really pop in your aquarium now on keeping shrimp they tend to do best in
heavily heavily planted aquariums this gives the shrimp plenty of places
to hide which makes them feel a lot more secure in the tank now keeping this in
mind you do want to be careful when you’re dosing your tanks with
fertilizers as many contain copper in them which can be potentially harmful to
the shrimp now because many species of shrimp are also very very small you do
want to keep that in mind when you are choosing your filtration as well what
method of filtration you have might depend on what type of tank and what
setup you have because you don’t want your little shrimp getting sucked into
the filter you will also want to keep in mind what type of fish that you are
