wow that was quick, and no nothing special they love algae and spinach, I stopped feeding them sinking algae wafers as this kinda turned their colour, the ones that ate algae stayed blue.

the ph is low there is ada substrate with co2 at 1 bubble every 3 seconds, these shrimp are as easy to keep as cherries. They are the same species, Infact I keep finding shrimps everywhere lately, I took apart my ehiem 2236 and found about 15 cherries all adults with 1 carrying eggs. They have been in the canister for over a year because I havent kept shrimp in my 29g since I started it up.

Blue Buddha shrimp? Never heard of them before. Would they interbreed with red cherries?
BBS blue buddha shrimp aka blueberry, yah they are the same species so they would interbreed.
