The other day at work I purchased 2 small blue velvet shrimp. I didn't bother acclimating them other than floating their bag because I have heard it is better to drop inverts in rather than doing a lengthy drip process. They are doing great. I have them in a 5 gallon that, while bare bottom and dingy looking, has good water parameters of 0/0/5 (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate). The tank has plenty of algae and biofilm in it and a sponge filter. Plants are pothos, duckeed, and some floating cabomba. I am preparing to set up a 2.3 gallon nano and I would like the blue velvets to be the only inhabitants. In fact, I would like to buy 10 more at least. The tank will be low tech, though the substrate is an aquasoil called Controsoil. I have Bacter AE that I plan to put under the substrate as well as dose 4-5 times a week. Aside from letting the tank mature for a few weeks before adding the shrimp, what other steps are necessary for their care and well-being? I am hoping they will breed and I could dedicate my current 5 gallon to that.
