Shrimp Mix includes, Cherry Red, Orange Sakura, Yellow Fire shrimp, Green Shrimp, Tiger Shrimp, and some Red Rili Shrimp. It is a nice assortment of colors for someone looking to find out what might look good in his aquarium. They readily eat prepared foods and like foraging in an established tank.
All Neocardinia shrimp are easy to care for and will breed easily. They require an aquarium with a dark substrate and a lot of plants and to feel comfortable (Dark sand and dark gravel are ideal) The addition of carotene pigments in their food is recommended. They will spend their time hanging out on plants and forage through the substrate to feed. They are a nice addition to any small aquarium composed of small non-aggressive nano fish.
The ideal condition are temperatures between 70 F and 85 F, Ph between 6.5 and 8.5. Carbonate Hardness (KH) below 8 grains. The KH is particularly important, Neocardinia shrimp do not do well with high carbonate levels in the water, KH will increase with the addition of crushed coral shells or dolomite as a substrate. High carbonate levels will cause shrimp die off over time because it prevents them from molting. General Hardness (GH) between 10 to 20 grains is recommended.

oss Balls (Cladophora Aegagropila), sometimes called Japanese Moss Balls or Marimo Balls aren't actually related to moss at all. The Moss Ball is a spongy velvet-like green algae ball. These rare plants are only native to Scotland, Japan, Iceland, Estonia and now are found in Australia.
Moss Balls are great for low tech. tanks like bioBowls and other nano tanks without mechanical filtration because they actually draw in nutrients cleaning the water in the process. They don't require any special lighting or substrate. Just place them wherever you like and you're done.
For best results Moss Balls require moderate to strong levels of lighting. The temperature of the water should be between 72°-82°F, with an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a neutral pH.

Java Moss (Vesicularia dubyana) Native to Southeast Asia, it is commonly used in freshwater aquariums. It attaches to rocks, roots, and driftwood. Java moss does not require any special attention.
It grows well in all kinds of water conditions, and a variety of light levels. It grows best at 70 to 75° Fahrenheit (21 to 24° Celsius), but can live in temperatures of up to 85 to 90 °F (29 to 32 °C).
It makes a good foreground plant. It is also a great plant for fresh water shrimp as it provides a lot surface area for the shrimp to hang onto and forage.
