Red Cherry Shrimp are a red color not as deep as the Bloody Mary shrimp. Red Cherry's which have red bodies and translucent legs. They readily eat prepared foods and like foraging in an established tank.
All Neocardinia shrimp are easy to care for and will breed easily. If you want the shrimp to maintain their bright coloration, 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.

Guppy Grass, Najas Grass (Najas Guadalupensis) is very easy to grow and is a hardy plant. You can just let this plant float in your tank and it will overtake your tank in matter of weeks. You can also plant it in the back of the aquarium to create a wall of foliage.
Najas grass efficiently pulls nitrate from the water column, so it can be used in heavily stocked tanks to keep nitrate levels lower. It is a well know plant for hobbyist breeding livebearers. This plant will provide a good habitat for young fish, where they can hide, forage and stay safe from other predatory fish.
Purchase Size: one bunch (6-8 stems), 6-8” long strands
Banana Plants (Nymphoides Aquatica) are unusual in that they can be grown rooted or as floating plants. They prefer a bright light and a tropical temperature range, but do just fine in lower light conditions. These plants have unique banana shaped roots and make great specimen plants in aquariums. They're just the right size for nano tanks and bioBowl aquariums.
The lower leaves can grow 6-18" tall and will often produce a floating lily shaped leaf at the surface. In ideal conditions Banana Plants will flower in an aquarium producing small white five-petalled flowers rising from below the leaf.
