If you like cherry shrimp but want something a little more exciting, snowball shrimp might be for you. Though just as easy to care for as their cherry cousins, they are white instead of red. A great eye catcher in any shrimp tank!

One of the reasons many Neocaridina varieties (including snowball shrimp) are such a good choice for beginners is that they're not really picky about water values. They can survive in a wide range as long as the tank is fully cycled and ammonia and nitrites are always at zero. Worst case scenario, they can even handle a beginner mistake here and there. pH can be low to high, water can be hard to soft and any indoor temperature should work just fine.

To keep your water quality in check, be sure to test regularly using a liquid test kit; test strips are less accurate and should be avoided where possible. Do weekly water changes to keep the nitrates in check but be sure to always match the temperature and pH and add the new water slowly.
