 2.  are  sulawesi  mineral  a  must?  
 3.  Can  they  be  keep  in  heavy  planted  tank  with  no  CO2  or  Ferts?  
 4.  Is  it  easy  to  breed?  
 5.  Can  they  be  kept  with  other  neocaridina  shrimp,  Ghost  Shrimp  and  Amano  Shrimp.  
 6.  Apx  cost  of  cardinal  shrimp  in  Bangalore

 Prajith,
 
 Two  things  thats  always  strike  my  mind  when  it  comes  to  Sulwaesi's  are  Ph  and  Temperature.  These  are  key  to  the  success  in  keeping  Sulawesi  shrimps.  I  dont  think  it  is  is  necessary  to  keep  them  in  a  planted  tank.  Something  good  to  do  ,  is  add  some  Sulwaesi  snails,  like  the  rabbit  snail,  to  give  them  a  feel  of  @home.
 
 One  of  the  trusted  sites  for  Shrimp  keeping,  talks  a  lot  about  these  and  others  in  the  hobby:

 Good  luck  with  Cardinals  Thumb Up

 1]  Cant  say  anyting  specific  about  Bangalore  but  some  mistakes  made  by  Newbies  is  not  doing  enough  research,  not  setting  up  and  cycling  the  tank  long  enough  and  not  providing  close  to  and  stable  ideal  prameters
 
 2]  Depends  on  your  water  and  tank.  If  you  can  come  close  to  their  ideal  parameters  with  your  tap  water  or  buffer  it  in  the  tank  and  keep  these  parameters  stable,  you  will  not  need  buffers.  I  would  still  recommend  them  to  use  for  remineralising  RO  water  to  use  for  WC
 
 3]  There  are  only  a  few  plants  that  will  do  Ok  in  the  conditions  that  they  thrive  in  so  they  wont  be  possible  in  a  regular  planted  tank
 
 4]  No
 
 5]  Some  cherries  and  ghost  shrimp  might  survive  but  generally  their  requirements  are  quite  different  from  our  regular  shrimp.  Kep  it  a  species  only  tank
 
 6]  No  idea
 
 7]  All  3  parameters  are  important.  Try  and  get  as  close  to  ideal  as  possible  but  above  all  else  keep  stable  parameters
 
 8]  Read  up  about  them  as  much  as  you  can  and  allow  your  tank  to  mature  for  atleast  1.5-2  months  before  you  get  them.  This  way  the  biofilm  has  enough  time  to  develop  and  you  can  practice  getting  your  parameters  close  to  ideal  as  well  as  how  to  adjust  the  parmeters  of  your  WC  water  so  that  it  is  as  close  to  the  tank  water
