    They really aren't hard to keep at all, but they definitely can get a bit aggressive.
    I have had mine steal food, and pick at other fish that come near them when they are eating.

    You should be sure that you have a cycled tank, and good water conditions because nitrates can kill them if they are too high consistently.
    Otherwise, not very hard invertebrates to keep in a tank.

    I have my tank cycled but I have no idea what to feed them, or how often I should do water changes with them...

    Thank you for that site!!

    Shrimp generally don’t need much to eat as they can graze on algae, biofilm and fish flakes if they’re in a community aquarium. Otherwise algae flakes and wafers and many other products designed for shrimp are available. Overfeeding is more common than under feeding.

    I am keeping them in their own separate tanks.
