Their tankmates are able to coexist with them without difficulty. They are completely safe to coexist with all forms of plants as well as aquatic animals of all kinds. Black Sakura Shrimps are a superb option if you are searching for a scavenger for your tank because of their exceptional scavenging abilities.
Water Requirements: Black Sakura Shrimp, like any other aquatic critter, requires specific water parameters in order to achieve the most vibrant colours. Providing they are given a variety of temperature, pH, and hardness, they flourish better, live longer, and are happier and healthier. In addition, they prefer tanks that are furnished with live plants over those that are not. When there are willow mosses, baby tears, and other natural materials around, black Sakura Shrimps are at ease.
Temperatures range from 65° to 80° F.
pH ranges from 6.4 to 7.8.
Hardness ranges from 4 to 14 kH.
Care Instructions: In addition to providing the shrimp with the proper water and habitat conditions, it is critical that they be fed the proper foods. Black Sakura Shrimps have no specific feeding needs since they are scavengers in nature and like munching on decaying waste and algae, which they find in plenty. You simply need to give them a little amount of high-quality dry feed or eatable veggies like as zucchini, for example. Overfeeding often results in hazy and unclear water, which is the primary cause of their mortality in the vast majority of cases. If the tank is old and there is a lot of algae and dead stuff in it, it is not necessary to feed the shrimp anything.
