Izzyf Posted April 20 Share Posted April 20 My local pet shop suggested adding shrimp to the tank to help keep it clean. They have a fish point system so they told me that the shrimp (and also snails) didn’t count towards the number of fish in the tank, so by their logic whether I had a 120 litre tank with two goldfish (and one goldfish needed 60l), or a 15 litre tank with a couple of minnows, I could have as many shrimp as I want. The type of shrimp they sell is an Amano shrimp. They also told me it was suitable to keep in Coldwater. I have since been to other fish providers and the consensus seemed to be that shrimp are best kept in a heated tank. I have never kept shrimp before but if I should find myself considering adding shrimp to my tank one day I would want to ensure they are kept in the best condition possible. Is it not the case that shrimp have a minimum water requirement just like any other fish? And if I have a Coldwater tank around 20 degrees C., would a shrimp be comfortable at this temperature?
