Mixed Caridina Culls are a great choice for hobbyists interested in a mix of different shrimp varieties, colors and patterns. Caridina Culls are primarily male. These shrimp are non-agressive and suitable for community tanks that contain peaceful livestock and shrimp-only tanks. These freshwater shrimp adapt quickly and spend most of their time eating algae and biofilm off plants, aquarium glass, substrate and hardscape.
Caridina Culls will tolerate a wider range of water parameters, but drastic or sudden changes should be avoided to keep them healthy and happy. Like most freshwater shrimp, a standard of 70°-75° F and softer water will work just fine.
