Community - Does require soft water to survive.                                                                                                               

The Cherry Shrimps exist in many colours and are a relatively easy shrimp to keep. They are hardy and tolerant to a wide range of water conditions. They are easy to breed, maintain and they are usually pretty good at keeping away from predators. They do require a mature aquarium with stable water quality. 

They prefer to be kept in numbers as it will make them more confident to remain out in the open.

These little shrimps are sensitive to water conditions. They need soft water and many keepers will use a percentage of RO water to maintian the tank conditions.
