 Shrimps,  need  good  water  quality.  As  long  as  you  keep  up  with  water  changes  and  make  sure  that  there  is  no  sudden  temperature  variation,  with  enough  algae  to  feed  them,  they  wont  die.

 actually  i  dont  agree  with  the  water  changes.  i  have  rainbows  and  cherrys  in  my  tank  and  they  do  just  fine  with  out  excess  water  changes.  my  temps  are  between  28  to  32  on  any  given  day.  if  there  isnt  enough  alage  suplement  them  with  algae  wafers  or  spirulina  wafers.  atm  am  feeding  my  shrimps  veggie  flakes.

 the  shrimps  in  the  first  3  pics  are  females  and  in  the  fourth  pics  its  a  male,
 these  are  excellent  algae  eaters,
 they  are  know  by  many  names  such  as  rainbow  shrimps(they  have  another  sub  groups  3  groups),  indian  dwarf  shrimps,  etc....
 these  shrimps  are  scavangers  by  nature  and  will  take  whatever  you  offer  them  including  regular  pellets,  they  are  not  as  demanding  as   most  of  the  other  shrimps,  infact  these  are  hardier  than  the  RCS

 they  might  have  come  on  plants  but  that  depends  how  you  pack  your  plants.  most  people  here  just  wet  an  few  sheets  of  news  paper  and  wrap  the  plant  in  that.  shrimps  will  not  survive  in  this.  its  is  possble  that  u  collected  them  from  that  park  and  they  are  starting  to  mature  now.
