Blue Tiger shrimp water quality

Water quality is one of the most important care aspects for all shrimp. Blue Tiger shrimp aren't the easiest and can be a little fragile due to inbreeding, so be sure to stay on top of your water values and check them regularly. Soft, acidic water works best for this species.

Never introduce any shrimp, including Tiger shrimp, into an uncycled aquarium. Ammonia and nitrite can wipe out your colony in a matter of hours! Also be sure to perform regular water changes, as these shrimp can be sensitive to nitrates as well. The amount of water that should be changed and the best water change frequency varies, so do weekly water tests to figure out a schedule that works for you. 20% every week is a good place to start.

Blue Tiger shrimp tankmates

Blue Tiger shrimp are very vulnerable and there are only a few fish species peaceful enough to leave even the tiniest baby shrimp alone. In fact, if you're looking to breed your shrimp it's recommended to skip the fish altogether and set up a single-species aquarium. Other shrimp species (that don't interbreed) and peaceful snails should work, though.
