Tangerine Tiger is a breed of Caridina shrimp. Caridina shrimp are beautiful shrimp with multiple different patterns and colours. Although they are more challenging to keep than Neocaridina shrimp, they can be a rewarding and amazing shrimp to keep. To keep these shrimp successfully, reverse osmosis water must be used with and the addition of GH+ shrimp salts. Caridina shrimp also require a lower pH and will require a buffering substrate to allow the pH of the water to drop

Tangerine Tiger shrimp we have found to keep them closer to Neocaridina parameters works well. We use reverse osmosis (RO) water and use GH/KH+ salts to create a good environment for the shrimp. A KH of around 3 is our preferred parameters.

Our shrimp are sold at 1cm – 1,5cm in size. Age of the shrimp at this size is 3 – 4 months. We sell shrimp at this size for 2 reasons:

  1. The younger shrimps acclimate better to new environments and also travel better over long distances.
  2. They will live longer for you and grow up with your maintenance habits and aquarium keeping traits. Everyone does this a little different.
