Neocaridina davidi var. Yellow, commonly known as yellow shrimp, is one of the most popular shrimp varieties in the hobby. As the name suggests this shrimp is selectively bred for its super bright, eyecatching yellow color. It is unfussy about water values and breeds easily, which makes it a great option for anyone just starting out.
As with all shrimp the aquarium should be filtered and fully cycled before any livestock is introduced. Any filter should work well but keep in mind that baby shrimp are very small. Always use a prefilter sponge (or, alternatively, a sponge filter) to prevent them from disappearing into the intake. A heater isn't necessary as these shrimp can tolerate a very wide range of temperatures as long as things are stable.
Shrimp are prey animals that don't feel safe in open spaces. so be sure to provide your yellow shrimp with plenty of hiding places. Don't worry about not ever seeing them: the safer the shrimp feel the more time they spend out in the open. Fine-leaved plants, shrimp tubes, rocks and driftwood all provide shelter and should work well. You can also add leaf litter to imitate their natural habitat and as an extra food source.
