When it comes to shrimp tankmates it all depends on your own preferences. If you don’t mind losing a fry or two occasions you can keep your green shrimp with carefully chosen fish tankmates. Peaceful fish that can’t fit an adult shrimp into their mouth, like small schooling species, should work.
Green shrimp are a great option if you’re just starting out with breeding shrimp. Unlike some other dwarf shrimp they breed very quickly; in fact, healthy females can almost always be seen carrying eggs. All you need to do to make sure these hatches successfully and the fry make it to adulthood is keep the water quality high and feed a variety of nutritious foods.
