Focus animal of the week: Dwarf shrimp!
These cute, colorful little animals are active and fun members in your aquarium. They can be kept with peaceful fish, and look really great alone in a species-only tank. They’re great for both new and experienced fish keepers.
Temps: 65 – 80.
Because of their small size, they fare better in smaller tanks, especially ones with gentle filtration, like a bubble or a sponge filter. The love plants, as that gives them places to hide and dash about and find food on, and those plants will help keep ammonia and nitrates in check (although frequent small water changes are, as always, still important!)
