Yellow fire shrimp are very bright sun yellow color, they have a very distinct yellow stripe on their back. They readily eat prepared foods and like foraging in an established tank.
They are easy to care for and will breed easily. If you want the shrimp to maintain their bright coloration, they are most comfortable in an aquarium with a dark substrate and a lot of plants. Dark sand and dark gravel are ideal. They will spend time hanging out on plants and forage through the substrate to feed. They are a nice addition to any aquarium composed of small non-aggressive nano fish.
The ideal condition are temperatures between 70 and 85F, 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.

Moss 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.
